AVATAR : AMP suit
The AVATAR AMP suit
About this creation



The Mitsubishi MK-6 Amplified Mobility Platform (or "AMP" Suit) is a distant descendant of the first military exoskeletons used on Earth in the mid 21st century. It was improved during military service in a myriad of combat theaters– from arctic to jungle to desert– over the decades. Sealed and pressurized models for toxic environments were developed as well. The suit is used extensively on the Moon and Mars colonies (where they are powered by fuel cells and/or monopropellant ceramic turbines). Its well-tested capabilities have proved invaluable in the deadly environment of Pandora. Its full name is the Mitsubishi MK-6 Amplified Mobility Platform.



The human-operated walking machine magnifies the strength and mobility of a soldier or civilian worker while providing protection from military and environmental threats. Unlike fanciful designs in which weapons were integrated into limbs, the AMP suit is a multi-purpose machine, able to duplicate all functions of the infantry soldier. Since soldiers spend much of their time loading and unloading, and performing other tasks besides operating weapons, it was determined that the AMP suit needed the same functionality as a human: two legs, two arms, and highly dexterous hands. This allows not only a wide range of functions, but allows the suit to operate a variety of weapons systems.



Arms operate in a directly scaled relationship to the operator’s arms, which allows better spatial positioning of the hands. The fingers and thumb are in direct 1:1 ratio. The servo armature has force feedback, and resists the movement of the operator’s arms when the suit's limbs meet an obstacle. The operator can "feel" what the suit is doing. It is said that the suit can be operated in full darkness, by a skilled driver, by "feel" alone. The legs are actuated by foot-pedals which amplify on an even larger ratio. In fact the leg sensors work slightly differently than the arms. Due to the confining spatial envelope around the feet and legs of the operator, the pedals cannot move in long strides, even on a scaled relationship. Instead, they sense the force and direction of the input and the on board computer triggers a corresponding programmed movement of the legs. So the operator creates pressure and direction "cues" which trigger leg movements.




My say about the movie:

Why doesn't Col. Quaritch die or suffocate when he goes outdoors in Pandora so
many times?

Hmm, the arms could use some work, it looks a bit too "skinny" and you need ammo coming over the shoulder..4/5

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J Very nice! Quite poseable! ... and why does Col. Quaritch survive the oxygen-depleted atmosphere of Pandora? He snorts a good dose of "amoy niya", I mean, ammonia! (of course, I was just making that up, but I just had to sneak "amoy niya" in there). XD
AAHHAAHAHAHA GALING MO NAMAN!!!
