ReconRobotics Showcasing its Mission-Critical Reconnaissance solution at SOFEX 2012
ReconRobotics is showcasing the Recon Scout XT: a throwable, mobile reconnaissance device that enables warfighters to obtain instantaneous video reconnaissance within indoor structures or in outdoor environments of dirt, sand and rocks.

Based on the Recon Scout IR, the XT model was adapted to match the US Army needs. It features different wheels, improved motor and a clutch system that disengage the wheels when thrown to avoid damage to the engine upon impact with the ground. It can climb 2-inch obstacles.

3,500 robots are deployed, worldwide, and more than 400 SWAT teams use ReconRobotics robots. We also learned that ReconRobotics is working on a version with magnetic wheels for the US Navy Seals to give the robot the capability to climb metal panels typically found in vessels.

Equipped with large motors, powerful drive trains and aggressive wheels, the Recon Scout XT can be directed to quietly move through a building, bunker or cave and transmit real-time video back to the warfighter’s handheld OCU. This video can be used to locate enemy combatants, civilians or explosive devices, and enable the warfighter to gain situational awareness during urban warfare operations or remote reconnaissance missions. Equipped with an infrared optical system that automatically turns on when the ambient light is low, the Recon Scout XT can transmit video up to 30 meters indoors and 91 meters outdoors. When proper User Guide procedures are followed, the Recon Scout XT can also withstand incidental immersion in up to 30 centimeters of water for up to five minutes.

The Recon Scout XT is just eight inches long and weighs just 524 grams, making it extremely easy to carry and throw. Deploying the Recon Scout XT takes just 5 seconds, and using it requires no special training. Simply pull the activation pin and throw the device through a doorway or over a wall, or drop it down a vertical shaft using a tether. Using the single joystick on the operator control unit, a warfighter can then direct the device through the environment. The Recon Scout XT may be specified in any of three transmitting frequencies, allowing warfighters to operate up to three robots in the same environment at the same time.
