ReconRobotics is the world leader in tactical micro-robot and personal sensor systems. Worldwide, nearly 6,000 ReconRobotics® robots have been deployed to the U.S. military and international friendly forces, federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, bomb squads and fire/rescue teams. Each day, they use the company’s mobile Recon Scout® and Throwbot® devices to protect their personnel, minimize collateral damage, and gain immediate reconnaissance within dangerous and hostile environments.
What makes ReconRobotics® the market leader?
Above all, bots are developed with end users in mind. ReconRobotics robots are:
- The most Rugged and Durable
- Truly reliable
- Very easy to use
- Low weight weight (600g)
- No training is required and they are quick to use
- Low maintenance costs
Throwbot 2 (TB2)
The Throwbot® 2 (TB2) robot is a throwable micro-robot platform that enables the operator to obtain instant video and audio detection in indoor or outdoor environments. Designed to withstand repeated drops of up to 30 feet (9 m) onto concrete, the Throwbot® 2 robot can be thrown into dangerous situations so that users can quickly make the right informed decisions in seconds. The Throwbot 2 microrobot (basic version) is designed to crawl on different terrains and overcome obstacles up to 5 cm high.
Optional conversion kits are available. They give the Throwbot® 2 robot the ability to climb obstacles up to 10cm high or carry and tow a combined 1.8kg of weight using integrated mounting points or Picatinny rails. After activation, the robot can be immediately made to move through the area and transmit in real time:
These reconnaissance features can detect and identify dangerous elements, confirm the presence of hostages and discover the layout of a room. When used in conjunction with the Recon Scout® SearchStick™, it can also function as a camera to facilitate the inspection of attics, roofs, and otherwise inaccessible spaces. When entering a dark room, the robot automatically turns on the IR camera.
If the basic version of Throwbot allows you to quickly check places invisible to the eye and gives operators the time they need to perform the right actions, then with ReconRobotics robots it is also possible:
- Give voice commands (Directly or through translation)
- Make confusing Sounds to distract
- Disturbing lighting effects
