The Air Force’s 27th Special Operations Wing is programming scenarios into robots to allow airmen to practice their responses to real-life intense moments, like hostage situations. Explosive ordnance disposal technicians at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico recently conducted training with these specialized robots, learning how to shoot at specific targets while protecting innocent bystanders.

The robot exercise helped the airmen hone their skills so that their reactions in these situations can become second nature.
