DEFEA 2021: General Robotics unveils Dogo armed robot
Greek company General Robotics showcases a wide range of robotic applications, namely Dogo, a lightweight (11.5 kg) robot designed for reconnaissance, lethal and non-lethal engagement with « point and shoot » technology.

Dogo is intended for close quarter battle (CQB), anti-terror operations, urban warfare, tunnels and underground warfare, law enforcement, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. There is a 2-way audio system for remote negotiations and deceptions.
The armament of the robot consists in a standard compact automatic pistol such as Glock or a Sig Sauer (a Glock is used in the robot demonstrated at DEFEA 2021 but this system is kept « discrete », hence the absence of a picture). The pistol is mounted in a module, remotely aimed and activated to fire via « point and shoot » technology.

For comprehensive situational awareness by day and night, the robot can be fitted with 8 color video cameras, 5 selectable real-time channels, 2 calibrated bore-sight views, an integrated laser designator and near-infrared illumination.
In option, a stun illumination intensity of 2,000 Lumen is available, with an effective range of 5 meters by day time or 10 meters by night time,and a flashing frequency of 12-15 Hz up to 50Hz.
