USSOCOM Orders Sarcos GUARDIAN XO Exoskeleton

Full-Body, Autonomously Powered Robot

The US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has contracted Sarcos Robotics to deliver a pre-production version of its GUARDIAN XO full-body, autonomously-powered robotic exoskeleton.

Capable of operating for up to eight hours per battery charge, while walking at three miles per hour and carrying up to 200 pounds of payload, the XO has the ability to ‘hot swap’ rechargeable batteries in the field: its run-time is therefore essentially unlimited.

The USSOCOM XO contract follows Sarcos’ recent announcements regarding collaboration with both the US Air Force and US Navy to develop and evaluate variations of the GUARDIAN XO for use cases specific to these services. With 17 years of development efforts and more than $175 million invested in research and development, Sarcos has focused on ensuring the GUARDIAN XO MAX is safe, intuitive and power efficient. The company recently revealed significant power and performance enhancements to the XO, including significant improvements in power consumption, control system functionality and load transfer.
