XOS exoskeleton needs to get to less than 1000 watts of power usage and less than half the weight

More information about the Raytheon XOS 2 exoskeleton

Dr. Fraser Smith, Vice President of Operations at Raytheon Sarcos, hopes a XOS2 type system could be fielded within five years.

XOS 2 is lighter, stronger and faster than its predecessor, yet it uses 50 percent less power, and its new design makes it more resistant to the environment. The suit uses up to 3.5 kilowatts of power. Reducing 47% of the suite weight will reduce power demands.

Energy consumption needs to get down to one kilowatt or less and the hydraulics need to be even more efficient.
