A RO­BOT FOR HIGH-RISK EN­VI­RONS

SP's LandForces - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

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.
