According to a report by Bloomberg, the Pentagon is investing roughly 1 billion-dollars on the development of robots to be used in a variety of roles alongside combat troops.

While the US military already uses robot to perform things like bomb disposal and scouting, the new wave of robots will reportedly perform more complex roles such as detecting hazardous chemicals, carrying soldier's gear, and carrying out complex reconnaissance.

Bryan McVeigh, the Army's project manager for force protection, told Bloomberg he has "no doubt" there will be robots in every Army formation "within five years."
