I was going to say it should be deployed against U.S. civilians sometime late 2016.

From the headline, I really expected that the article was going to be about armor-clad horse cavalry coming back into fashion.

I was wondering how they thought they could make something survivable and half the weight at the same time. Then I read the bit about "active repositioning" of armor, and a lightbulb went off. Pretty groovy idea.

DARPA also says the GXV-T program provides four technical areas as examples where advanced technologies could be developed that would meet the program's objectives including:

Radically Enhanced Mobility - Ability to traverse diverse off-road terrain, including slopes and various elevations; advanced suspensions and novel track/wheel configurations; extreme speed; rapid omnidirectional movement changes in three dimensions

Survivability through Agility - Autonomously avoid incoming threats without harming occupants through technologies such as agile motion (dodging) and active repositioning of armor

Crew Augmentation - Improved physical and electronically assisted situational awareness for crew and passengers; semi-autonomous driver assistance and automation of key crew functions similar to capabilities found in modern commercial airplane cockpits

Signature Management - Reduction of detectable signatures, including visible, infrared, acoustic and electromagnetic.
