Imagine for a moment that you have a vast expanse of land devoid of human life, essentially making it a giant experimental playground. What would you do with this space? Load it up with razor wire? Check. Hundreds of armed guards with shoot-on-sight orders? Check. Numerous infiltration tunnels dug by a certain unnamed nation plagued by lunatic leaders? Check. Impending autonomous kill-on-sight sentry bots that can sight human life up to 3km away and terminate with extreme prejudice? Check. This is the reality of the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea. This is where South Korea is preparing to deploy a powerful new turret manufactured by DoDaam.
DoDaam has created a high-tech autonomous device capable of identifying human life even in poor weather conditions and at a range close to 2 miles by means of an infrared filter and advanced imaging. This cold, calculating killing machine is known as the Super aEgis 2, and if rumors are to be believed, the Korean DMZ is to be its proving grounds.
The Super aEgis 2 comes standard equipped with a 12.7mm (.50 cal) machine gun but can be upgraded to a 40mm grenade launcher or even a portable SAM. With a dry weight (no weapon) of 120kg it can easily be mounted on a vehicle and controlled manually or set up as a stationary remote-sentry gun. The device’s main control comes from an integrated LAN port, allowing users to switch between autonomous function and manual control in an emergency. As a stand-alone sentry, it is extremely accurate due to its gyro stabilization system. This allows the turret to re-home on a target when recoil knocks it off center.
With the constant threat of invasion by the north, South Korea needs all the help they can get when it comes to securing their borders. While it is unlikely that an army will literally come marching across the border, the Super aEgis 2 will be ready to slice down opposition in the blink of an eye. One can only hope that future generations of kill-bots are even more efficient when they come equipped with their very own AI and are not only autonomous, but ambulatory as well…
