Android isn't eighteen, but that won't stop it from having a chance to serve in the armed forces. Reuters reports that Raytheon is working to develop an Android-based battlefield smartphone. They are working on apps that will allow soldiers to access images from unmanned drones and satellites. Supposedly, this tech will be so accurate that it will allow soldiers to zoom in on cars enough to see their license plates.
The Raytheon Android Tactical System, or RATS, has been added to several un-named Motorola and HTC smartphones. The handsets (which should cost $500 a piece) will be heavily encrypted and installed with special communications software that is meant to keep them working even when well out of range of any cell towers.
