Michael Santiago, 12-year-old Cleveland native, controls a Marine Corps robotic system at the Marine Corps Systems Command display tent outside the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland in June. The display was part of Marine Week Cleveland events. Explosive ordnance disposal and infantry Marines use the robots, which have been in use in combat zones since 2001, to protect Marines and prevent injuries. The Marine Corps is currently developing a remote that units can carry with them which will control both ground robots and unmanned aircraft as well. More than 750 Marines were in Cleveland all week displaying Marine aircraft, vehicles and equipment, as well as interacting and sharing with the public the values and character of the Marine Corps. One of the culminating events was a Marine Air Ground Task Force demonstration at Burke Lakefront Airport, which showcased Marines' ability to assault from ship-to-shore via ground and air. - Michael Santiago, 12-year-old Cleveland native, controls a Marine Corps robotic system at the Marine Corps Systems Command display tent outside the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland in June.
