Roboteam unveils Transportable Interoperable Ground Robot during AUSA 2017
During AUSA 2017 in Washington, D.C., Roboteam, Inc., which provides tactical ground robotic systems and controllers for defense, law enforcement and public safety missions, unveiled its Transportable Interoperable Ground Robot (TIGR).
Described by Roboteam as the “most advanced, groundbreaking robotic platform ever made available to the modern warfighter,” the TIGR is a two-man carried UGV with a modular design. The modular design allows for add-ons, sensors and future technology integration.
Highly mobile and capable of operating in any terrain, the all-weather UGV is capable of a number of different functionalities that are unachievable for other mid-sized robotic platforms in the “theater of war,” according to Roboteam.
“The TIGR's interoperability makes it the most effective counter-IED technology on the battlefield,” says Shahar Abuhazira, CEO of Roboteam, Inc.
“With the creation of the TIGR, Roboteam has excelled from a technological standpoint and with respect to our ability to match our niche capabilities to the U.S. Military’s critical demands.”
The TIGR includes the best-in-class day and night vision, as well as six HD video cameras.
Operators are provided with high dexterity for difficult EOD missions, CBRN survey operations, hazardous material incident response, and subterranean and culvert inspection, thanks to a “tactical five-degree-of-freedom manipulator.”
