Transfer Technologies and Advances in Future Combat

The human visual ability is unique and superb as Earth Species go. But we cannot see everything. For instance heat, sound waves, electricity, 85% of the spectrums of light, gravity waves, etc., but what if we could? We have man-made devices, which allow us to see these things already; Sonar, Night vision goggles, radar, thermo imaging, etc. What if we put all these components into a night vision head set and linked it up to the brain directly with all this information?

By visually observing waves of all types, disruption of all types we could sense events just prior to happening as the waves approach. For instance bullets approaching pushing on sound waves, people approaching by electro-magnetic signatures and brain waves, cars approaching by the airflow movement, etc. Even thought waves of danger being projected by another would be relatively easy to sense. Sending thoughts would also come natural and also knowing when to recognize them, interpret them and sense them. An enemy cannot hide if you can see his heat, see his heart beat, feel and sense his brain waves, not to mention the anomalies created by things like PDA devices, embedded RFID tracking devices for his armies command and control 'Blue force-Red force' component and imitation of our own technologies. All of this could be done on a smaller scale than the sophisticated Net-Centric; Satellite, AWACs, PDA, UAV, SmartBomb interconnected systems.

Now then with this lofty goal in mind and knowing that we are well on our way, we need to simplify the equation and ask ourselves some crucial questions. One of the first questions is in the wartime battle space, why have human solders? After all as we approach the world of human-computer interfaces for such things, we are also approaching and entering the world of Artificial Intelligence. So then why do you need the organic, often fallible human component for the last mile, or the one who fires the weapon? The actual answer may be a reason to enroll your college offspring at MIT's Artificial Intelligence Lab, Georgia Tech's UAV program, Stanford University's Mathematics program or Carnegie Mellon's, Berkeley's or Caltech's robotics research programs now.

We ought to fund such research and move it along as quickly as possible because the offshoots of such projects will rapidly spill into the private sector for the benefit of all. All of these tools can be used to help humans with disabilities, space travel, robotic first responders and safety our roadways and airlines. Think about it.
