While we’re still probably decades away from something that could even resemble the Iron Man suit that we’re accustomed to seeing on the big screen, that doesn’t mean new and amazing technology isn’t coming out on a daily basis.   Innovative technologies are being created that will allow soldiers to wear more gear while simultaneously being more protected and being able to withstand harsher conditions.

The further along our technology comes, the more indestructible soldiers might be.  Also, this doesn’t include some of the top secret tech that’s out there.  For all we know a real Iron Man suit might actually be in the testing phase.  But for now, this suit, which is pretty amazing, might be operational by 2018.

According to The Chive

U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is making progress researching, developing and testing a next-generation Iron Man-like suit designed to increase strength and protection and help keep valuable operators alive when they kick down doors and engage in combat, officials said.

The project, formally called Tactical Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, is aimed at providing special operators, such as Navy SEALs and Special Forces, with enhanced mobility and protection technologies. The TALOS suit powers an exoskeleton structure that can help troops conserve energy while on patrol.    Soldiers can quickly turn off the aided “walking” if they need to move during combat.

TALOS will have a physiological subsystem that lies against the skin that is embedded with sensors to monitor core body temperature, skin temperature, heart rate, body position and hydration levels. Lt. Cmdr. Matt Allen, SOCOM spokesman said, “The idea is to help maintain the survivability of operators as they enter that first breach through the door.”
