Recon To Build More Scouts for Military

ReconRobotics has been awarded $5.8 million to build micro robots for the military. They have requested 385 Recon Scout XT kits. Each weighs about a pound and can be used in areas too dangerous for humans. Both the bot and its controller can be charged from battery systems that the troops already carry and each has a titanium shell and urethane wheels that provide a drop shock resistance of 30 ft. They will be used for vehicle inspection, clearing spaces, evaluating IEDs and remote observation.
