A ROBOT FOR HIGH-RISK ENVIRONS
ReconRobotics has introduced the Recon Scout XL reconnaissance robot at the Counter Terror Expo in London on April 24. The 1.4-lb robot is designed for use by law enforcement and military personnel to conduct reconnaissance within challenging outdoor terrain and within cluttered indoor environments. The robot features a trademarked two-wheel, single-axle design, plus aggressive wheels and a distinctive stabilising tail that produce superior obstacle climbing ability. Dismounted military personnel will use the robot to conduct surveillance and search high-risk environments for adversaries, weapons caches and explosives. SWAT teams will use the XL to quickly gain video and audio reconnaissance during warrant-service operations, hostage rescues, barricaded subject callouts and remote inspections of suspected explosive devices.
