Rumors and Threats of Wars

In the past SIX (6) days, increasing Rumours and Threats of Wars in ‘Diverse Places’; Future of Defense: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics Driving Modern Day Military

Matthew 24:6-8 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Mark 13:7-8 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

With 5G, advanced satellite communication and integration of artificial intelligence and robotics, the future defense system may need minimal human intervention.

With technological advancements, countries are leaning more towards machines to win battles so that fewer human lives are lost. One big development is in the field of advanced robotics. Couple that with artificial intelligence and no human can match its power. The U.S. Air Force (USAF) recently conducted large-scale tests of such machines.

The USAF through the tests were demonstrating how the new Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) would play out in a real-life scenario. The system has been developed to collect, process and share data within the U.S. defense forces and the allies. Earlier this year, ABMS had also gone through a live-fire drill with satellite communication, partly provided by SpaceX.

The ABMS drill was one of the largest in the U.S. has ever conducted. It involved 65 government teams from all the defense departments including the Coast Guard besides 35 military divisions. In addition to that, 70 industry partners were also involved. The demonstration was conducted in four domestic test facilities and 30 other locations.

However, the recent drills are just a signal of how modern-day military may look like. With the 5G networks and artificial intelligence, machines would be marching into wars with a minimal human intervention. Let’s see how technological advancements are shaping the future defense system.

Advanced Communication

The fifth-generation mobile network or 5G has been a boon for defense applications. Its high-speed wireless bandwidth helps defense forces establish a better communication system that can be used for advanced weapons systems and inter-department communication. The U.S. Department of Defense holds a large portion of the millimeter-wave spectrum that 5G technology uses.

During the recent mock drills, USAF put 5G to test. Using the streamlined sensors, it conducted mock drills to detect and shoot down Russian missiles. It was successful as the high bandwidth allowed almost instantaneous cloud computing for better situational awareness. A large part of the $3.3 billion for ABMS will go to such advanced networks and over the next five (5) years, the existing facilities will be modernized.

Artificial Intelligence

With advanced communications, another pivotal area defense is leaning towards is integrating artificial intelligence (AI) to conduct missions. There are multiple applications of AI. From threat analysis and surveillance to cyber warfare and automated weapons systems, AI is seen as the jack of all trades. Currently, the U.S., Russia and China have some degree of automation using AI.

The latest USAF drills also included AI. When the mock Russian missiles were shot down, an AI system analyzed the target. Dubbed as LAWS (Lethal Automated Weapon System), it is a special class of modern-day military might that uses sensors and algorithms to independently destroy a target without manual human intervention.

However, a fully-automated weapon system is still not a part of the U.S. military. But China has already started selling its fully-automated drones that are capable of striking target without human intervention that has forced the U.S. to step up its game.

Advanced Robotics

Within the fully-autonomous system, robotics plays a big part. There were multiple attempts during the Cold War to have machines do the army’s jobs but most of them weren’t successful due to limitations of technology. But today, it is not only possible with technological advancement but it is in use to some degree already. The U.S. military uses a variety of unmanned guard vehicles (UGVs) that are deployed in a hazardous situation where human intervention might not be possible. With AI integration, such UGVs can work independently in guarding and carrying out missions — such as reconnaissance, patrolling and even shooting down targets — with minimal human intervention.

USAF’s drills too had the presence of robots. It used quadrupedal “robot dogs” to defend the perimeter at the Nellis Air Force Base, The Drive reported. Similar to the robot dogs developed by Boston Dynamics that surfaced in Singapore during the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown to patrol parks, army robots are more advanced. Developed by Ghost Robotics, the model, known as Vision 60, was designed to carry out remote inspection, mapping, distributed communication and ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) missions.

Previously, drills with such robot dogs were conducted but the tests were unsuccessful due to lack of bandwidth. But now that 5G has been implemented, the Quadrupedal Unmanned Ground Vehicle (Q-UGVs) can communicate more efficiently to provide persistent security.

“Our defenders employed robot dogs. These robot dogs are a new technology that we’re testing as part of the exercise. The dogs give us visuals of the area, all while keeping our defenders closer to the aircraft,” said Master Sgt. Lee Boston, CR team chief for the drill.

However, there are other applications of robotics in the military. Countries around the world have also tried developing an exoskeleton that would give them an advantage in the battlefield to not only carry heavyweight but also protect them from heavy firing. Russia’s Uran-6 mine clearance robot and the operator also use an exoskeleton, known as Ratnik, which is a combat suit. The U.S. Army too has trialed an exoskeleton that would provide strength, endurance and protect soldiers

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).
