    Cool toy at work.

    We had the new Commanding General pay a visit today, so a hardware display was set up across the building.

    This is called a "mosquito", basically just a big remote-control helicopter. The engineers here get to have all the fun!

    I guess the real fun is had by the folks who get to blow this sh1t up. They're all target systems.

    Here's how an unmanned Hummer drives itself around. Apparently, the Army frowns on blowing these up when a Private is driving it.

    They can only do the littlest of stuff here at Redstone. Most of it gets done at White Sands. I have only gotten to go out there once, about 7 years ago. I did get to see some Javelin stuff here recently. Blowing up some fiberglass tanks. Javelins are badass!

    One more photo, the control center. (mobile) We bring the targets to you!
