Footage released by the state-owned media outlet showed members of a unit in Ngari Prefecture putting on the unpowered exoskeletons and conducting patrols at an altitude of 5,000 m above sea level while carrying backpacks, each of which weighed about 20 kg, according to CCTV.
据中央电视台的报道,这家国有媒体发布的录像显示,阿里县一支部队的成员穿上无动力的外骨骼,在海拔5000米的高原进行巡逻,同时背着背包,每个背包重约20公斤。
 
The broadcaster reported that this particular exoskeleton – the designation of which was not disclosed – is aimed at helping soldiers carry out tasks more efficiently in “harsh, high-altitude environments” and quoted one of the soldiers as saying that the weight of the backpacks is transferred to the frames of the exoskeleton instead of the user’s legs.
该电视台报道说,这一特殊的外骨骼——其名称并未透露——旨在帮助士兵在“严峻的高海拔环境”更有效地执行任务,并引用一名士兵的话说,背包的重量转移到外骨骼的框架上,而不是使用者的腿上。
 
CCTV reported that exoskeletons were also recently used by soldiers attached to the PLA’s Xinjiang Military Command as part of a supply delivery mission, during which each of them carried 20 kg of food and water supplies in their backpacks. It is unclear, however, whether these soldiers used the same type of exoskeleton.
中央电视台报道说,解放军新疆司令部下属士兵最近也使用外骨骼执行补给任务,期间他们每个人的背包里都装有20公斤的食物和水。不过,目前还不清楚这些士兵是否使用了同一种外骨骼。
 
The broadcaster provided no further details about the recently deployed system but the report comes amid China’s efforts to expand the use of exoskeletons among some of its military units to help soldiers save energy while carrying out their duties, including carrying heavy loads.
该电视台没有提供有关最近部署系统的更多细节,但该报道正值中国努力扩大其部分军事单位使用外骨骼帮助士兵在执行任务时节省能源,包括携带重物。
