RESTRICTIONS: NONE

A Florida-based startup has developed the technology to equip drones with firearms and weaponry that will drastically change the way wars are fought.

Duke Robotics released the TIKAD drone this week.
The multirotor drone can carry and fire military weapons weighing up to 22 pounds, including semi-automatic rifles and grenade launchers.

The latest TIKAD drone models are designed to be remotely operated by soldiers on the ground. The drones are also built with a stabilization system able to handle the recoil of weapons fired from the air.

The technology was initially conceptualized to better identify, target, and destroy terrorist agents, reducing the collateral damage of civilian casualties. Deploying fleets of these weaponized drones is also expected to reduce the need for military personnel to remain in the field.

Duke Robotics has already taken an order from the Israeli military, and is now looking to outfit the US military, Defense One reported.
