iRobot is developing the next-generation SUGV (Small Unmanned Ground Vehicle), a tactical robot that can enter and secure areas that are either inaccessible or too dangerous for soldiers.
- Portability : Lightweight and easy to carry, SUGV weighs about 30 pounds.
- Versatility : A smaller and lighter version of the combat-proven iRobot® PackBot®, SUGV easily climbs stairs, rolls over obstacles and enters inaccessible and dangerous areas.
- Adaptability : SUGV operates in a variety of conditions and weather, as well as on rough terrain and in urban settings.
- Expandability : SUGV has a modular design that accommodates a wide range of optional payloads and sensors, including a dexterous manipulator.
