“Dog” Patrol

Security Forces Airmen from the 48th Fighter Wing and troops from RAF Leeming, U.K., conduct a joint patrol with their new Boston Dynamics Spot robot on the flight line during Agile Liberty 21-2, Aug. 25, 2021. The joint exercises demonstrate interoperability and Agile Combat Employment capabilities with allies, using new technologies such as the robot “dog,” to increase their effectiveness. The robot is nimble and able to navigate rough terrain while it gathers data and performs automated inspection tasks. Spot is used by other allies, as well, including France, which used it in combat training last spring.
