China has a new lighter and stronger military exoskeleton. Refinements in weight, ergonomics, and power supply could boost the second-generation exoskeleton's coefficiency ratio. Norinco claims that the reduced weight increases battery performance.
Other companies in China are working on exoskeletons
* China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation's has a powered exoskeleton for shipyard workers
* Chinese military engineers at EEAE have developed the L-70 exoskeleton
* Nanjing Military Region's General Hospital built an exoskeleton that helped its wearer lift up to 80 pounds.
Exoskeletons shown by the USA appear to be more advanced.
The suit has :
* physiological and biological sensors
* actuators that serve as the muscles to power the suit
* processors and computers,
* and a durable exoskeleton that offers support to the operator.
* the helmet has thin, transparent glass with ballistic protection and a heads-up display
It will provide protection against shrapnel and small arms fire, but could be targeted by an electromagnetic pulse weapon.
Special force exoskeletons have need to operate under for shorter times than Army exoskeletons would.
