Dragon Runner Joins TALON Military Team


A new SUGV has joined the military. The Dragon Runner is a lightweight, portable machine that can be used for reconnaissance and IED (improvised explosive device) disarmament. With camera and motion/sound detectors, the bot can climb stairs, go over doorways and seek out the evil enemy. At a mere 20 lbs, it can be carried in a soldier's standard-issue pack. The DR is an extension of the TALON military group. There are over 2,000 of them already in use by the military.
