Recon Robotics is the world leader in tactical microrobots and personal sensor systems. Nearly 6,000 ReconRobotics® robots have been deployed worldwide by the U.S. military and international friendly forces; federal, state and local law enforcement agencies; bomb disposal teams; and fire and rescue teams.
Every day, they use the company’s Recon Scout®- and Throwbot®-Devices to protect their personnel, minimize collateral damage, and get instant intelligence in dangerous and hostile environments.
The THROWBOT 2 (TB2) is a throwable microrobot that provides emergency responders with instant indoor and outdoor video reconnaissance.
In the field, it can be controlled to move quietly through a building and transmit real-time video and audio to the user’s control unit (OCUIII).
These scouting features can be used for locating and identifying suspicious persons or possible hostages, as well as for scouting the premises.
When used in conjunction with the Recon Scout SearchStick, responders can transform the THROWBOT 2 unit into a versatile baton camera. This facilitates the inspection of attics, roofs and interstitial spaces.
Recon Scout SearchStick
With the Recon Scout® SearchStick™ responders can turn any Recon Scout robot into a versatile baton camera. With the Searchstick, task forces can secretly place the robot in an elevated location, or in a locked room, and retrieve it later when reconnaissance is complete.
The SearchStick has a folded length of 52 cm and can be extended to a length of 183 cm.
The Throwbot® 2 robot is simply clamped into the powered clamps of the bar and the bar is extended to the required length. The robot then transmits live video of the environment to the portable Operator Control Unit (OCU).
With the SearchStick™, responders can deploy the robot unobtrusively to an unreachable location, in a high-rise building, basement or confined space, while remaining under cover, and retrieve it later when the reconnaissance is complete.
