Army Orders Up 315 Recon Scout XT Robots from ReconRobotics

ReconRobotics announced today that it has been awarded a $4.8 million contract from the U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force for 315 Recon Scout XT micro-robot kits and an equal number of SearchStickTM devices.

The SearchStick enables warfighters to convert any Recon Scout Throwbot into a pole camera, which warfighters can use to see over compound walls, onto rooftops and into culverts. ReconRobotics plans to complete deliveries of these micro-robot systems by October 31, 2011.

Recon Scout XT micro-robots are deployed at the fire-team level i.e., one robot for each four to six-man fire team, to maximize situational awareness and standoff distance during route- and compound-clearing operations. More than 2,000 of the company's Recon Scout systems have been deployed by the U.S. military and international friendly forces, and by hundreds of law enforcement agencies, worldwide. Warfighters use the Recon Scout system to determine the layout of the enclosed spaces, identify potential IEDs and the fix the location of friendly, indigenous or enemy personnel.

The company's Recon Scout XT weighs just 1.2lbs (540g), and yet it can be deployed in five seconds and thrown up to 120 feet (36m). The XT can be controlled with a single button and can be recharged in the field using standard 5590 or 2590 batteries.
