Aperture Science Military Android
General information

Aperture Science

Used by

Aperture Science

"Well done, android. The Enrichment Center once again reminds you that android hell is a real place where you will be sent at the first sign of defiance."

It appears that Aperture Science had once manufactured or tested the Military Androids. They are mentioned only twice, once in Test Chamber 16 of Portal, and in Test Chamber 03 of Portal 2.

These androids were originally meant for studying the effectiveness of the Sentry Turrets, and other defense mechanisms developed by Aperture Science as their names would suggest.


In Portal, during her series of tests, Chell is told by GLaDOS that the appropriate Test Chamber 16 is currently unavailable due to mandatory scheduled maintenance and that it has been replaced with "a live-fire course designed for military androids". While the chamber is highly dangerous and improper for human test subjects, GLaDOS merely apologizes "for the inconvenience" and wishes Chell "the best of luck". In the chamber, Chell is first confronted by the Aperture Science Sentry Turrets and must defeat them with Weighted Storage Cubes sent through portals she creates with her portal gun. After the test is over, GLaDOS' message seems to be automatic, as she addresses Chell as if she was an android herself while she congratulates her for succeeding. She also reminds that the Enrichment Center's "android hell", where androids are sent "at the first sign of defiance", "is a real place".

They are mentioned again in the ruins of Test Chamber 03 in Portal 2, where the Announcer states their involvement at the end of the test. He assures Chell that they have been taught to read and given a copy of The Laws of Robotics to share. He also urges Test Subjects to report if the androids begin to disregard human rights. One of the several punishments GLaDOS stated she would give Wheatley was sending him to "the room where all the robots scream at you". Whether this is android hell or a different location is uncertain.

Behind the scenes[edit]

The track "Android Hell" in the Portal soundtrack is a reference to the Military Android and its "hell".
