Boston Dynamics has long been known as an innovator in the world of advanced robotics. Leveraging that reputation the company has just been awarded a $10M contract to create a next-generation stealthy, bulletproof walker whose missions would likely see it support troops in surprise operations.

According to the DARPA contract, the advanced research agency expects to see a robot that has “increased reliability and usability, enhanced survivability against small arms fire and a quiet power supply to support stealthy tactical operations.”

Both Boston Dynamics and DARPA plan to have this new stealthy walker completed by March 31, 2015. When this machine might be ready for operations is anyone’s guess.
