The Advanced Warfighting Experiment doesn't just set itself up. Even after considerable planning, there are still details to workout and of course setting up the Exercise Control Centers or as we call them, EXCONS. The EXCONS are a crucial element to conducting any experiment, especially one the size of the AWE. LtCol Charles Berry (pictured) has the lead for the AWE.

The Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector (UHAC) is a 4/10 scale concept demonstrator that weighs in at a "lean" 38 tons and is just under 18" tall. The full scale craft, not yet built, is projected to hit 20 knots at sea and be capable of carrying 3 tanks.

The medical officer on duty at the Battalion Aid Station watches the video feed of a simulated injury during a Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory limited technical assessment. The Tempus Pro, portable vital signs monitor being used at the point of injury is able to transmit video, pictures, and vital signs to the next level of care while also enabling the medical providers to communicate through both voice and text.

Brigadier General Kevin Killea, Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory Commanding General, is seen here leading the mule-like robot known as the Legged Squad Support System (LS3) through the woods at Fort Devens, Mass.   The general, wearing  a special pack fitted with thick black bands that the robot is programmed to identify and track, led LS3 through the woods over uneven and sometimes tricky terrain strewn with fallen logs, thick underbrush, and wet leaves sometimes hiding holes and other unseen hazards.  The Warfighting Lab is working with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Boston Dynamics to explore concepts that can potentially lighten the load of Marine units.  LS3, still in the early stages of development, is capable of carrying 400 pounds of gear and traversing terrain that wheeled and tracked vehicles cannot.  The Limited Technical Assessment included putting the robot under the control of Marines from the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment at Camp Pendleton, Calif including animal packers from the Mountain Warfare Training Center in California.

PFC Marcus Beedle leads the mule-like robot known as the Legged Squad Support System on a patrol through open terrain at Fort Devens Mass.  Beedle, working with other Marines from 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment learned how to control LS3 and work it into basic formations and maneuvers during the limited technical assessment at Fort Devens.  This was the first time Marines have been given control of LS3 since the Warfighting Lab began working with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the system's developer Boston Dynamics.
