US military robot priced at $ 40 million: Legged Squad Support System

The Legged Squad Support System (LS3) was a DARPA project for a legged robot that could function autonomously as a packhorse for a squad of soldiers or marines. Like BigDog, its quadruped predecessor, the LS3 was ruggedized for military use, with the ability to operate in hot, cold, wet, and dirty environments. The LS3 was put into storage in late 2015.

The Legged Squad Support System was to "Go where dismounts go, do what dismounts do, work among dismounts, citation needed carry 400 pounds (180 kg) of squad equipment, sense and negotiate the terrain, maneuver nimbly, and operate quietly when required.

The LS3 was approximately the shape and size of a horse. A stereo vision system, consisting of a pair of stereo cameras mounted into the ‘head’ of the robot, was integrated alongside a light detecting and ranging component in order to enable it to follow a human lead and record intelligence gathered through its camera.
