About this Guide

Humans are increasingly being augmented with technological artifacts such as knee joints, pacemakers, and RFID implants. These and other forms of ‘wetware’ will eventually begin to provide those implanted with new and unique tactical capabilities.  Further, robots are now used for surveillance and intelligence gathering, bomb disposal, and even armed patrolling and reconnaissance by some military forces. Tethered, semi-autonomous, and autonomous systems are in a constant state of development. Such systems will benefit from expert system and artificial intelligence upgrades in the future. For both traditional law enforcement and special weapons and tactics units, cybernetic and biomechanical components and robots will increasingly impact their operations both beneficially (when utilized by LE) and detrimentally (when utilized by criminals and terrorists).
