Lockheed Martin begins to test HULC robotic exoskeleton

The folks over at Lockheed Martin must have plenty of pent-up rage, since they have started to test the HULC robotic exoskeleton. OK, so that was a rather lame reference to the angry green giant, but we do know that a bunch of improvements have already been made to the HULC prior to testing, where the exoskeleton is now more reliable and boasts an increased performance. Among them include new environmental sealing which delivers additional protection from natural elements and battlefield hazards, while refinements made to the HULC’s form and fit allows its wearer to adapt to it in a lesser amount of time. When will we see this hit the field in some serious battle action?
