UK Ministry of Defence: PORTON MAN
From io9:

Introducing Porton Man, the UK Ministry of Defence’s answer to the Pentagon’s Petman. And like the U.S. version, this robot will be subjected to a series of unpleasant scenarios, including chemical and biological contamination. So you don’t have to.
Indeed, the point of the £1.1 million (USD $1.8 million) robotic mannequin is to test light-weight protective suits and equipment for the UK armed forces. Porton Man can walk, march, run, sit, kneel and lift his arms to sight a weapon like an infantry soldier.
