South Korea unveils gun-toting sentry robot
AFP

September 28, 2006

SEOUL -- South Korea Thursday unveiled a high-tech, machine gun-toting sentry robot that could support its troops in detecting and killing intruders along the heavily fortified border with North Korea.

The weapons-grade robot can detect, raise the alarm, and provide suppressive fire, said Lee Jae-Hoon, deputy minister of commerce, industry, and energy. "The Intelligent Surveillance and Guard Robot has surveillance, tracking, firing, and voice recognition systems built into a single unit," he added.

Lee said that hundreds of the robots could be deployed along the 155-mile-long (248 kilometer) demilitarized zone bisecting the two Koreas as well as along the country's coastline and at military airfields.

With modifications, they could also be used to guard civilian installations such as airports, power stations, and oil pipelines. However, the government has made no decision yet on whether to deploy the robots along the world's last Cold War frontier.

Equipped with visual and infra-red detection capabilities, the sentry robot can spot moving objects up to four kilometers (2.5 miles) away during the day and half that distance at night.

Via "pattern recognition," it can distinguish between humans, cars, or trees at two kilometers in daytime and one kilometer at night. Suppressive fire can be provided by a machine gun on top.

The robot was developed by a group of four institutions including Samsung Techwin Co. and Korea University over three years at a cost of some $10 million in government and private funds. Each costs 190 million won ($200,000) and the developers expect to sell around $200 million worth of them when they go on sale late next year.

"The robot will also help cope with the expected decrease in conscripts in the coming years," Lee told journalists.

South Korea has a largely conscript military of 650,000 against Pyongyang's 1.2 million-strong forces, but a falling birth rate means that Seoul will struggle in the future to maintain troop numbers.


I read in another article that they plan on buying 1000 of these.

could you imagine this mounted on a segway?

Like the sentry robots in HL2? I must say deploying the robots along the DMZ is awesome. We should do the same for our borders.

Ever point a “laser” at a camera?

Try it, The camera can see nothing.

So we already have countermeasures for these so called terminators.

All you got here is an overpriced toy, something to instill fear in the general public and make the terrorists laugh.

yay! I want some!

cant wait for someone to spoof one and send it against its master - a mindless drone is easily turned

and beleive me when I say the simplest camouphlage will get you by one of these things

while impressive, this is a bad way to defend a line. a simple virus/bot and your defense line now become the enemies offense line.

RU-12! Take out that sentry droid!



If some kid can make one with a bb gun and 12 bucks worth of old VCR parts, I'm not surprised a big gov can make 'em.

Great spot to test 'em out too...

We are such a silly species.
