AUSA 2012: REF explores new high mobility small UGV designs

24th February 2012 - 19:36 GMT | by Scott Gourley in Fort Lauderdale, USA


The US Army Rapid Equipping Force (REF) has added two new small UGVs to the range of small unmanned ground systems it is exploring for service application. Examples of systems explored by the REF that are already in the field include the Small Unmanned Ground Vehicle (SUGV) 310 from iRobot and the Recon Scout XT ‘throwbot’ from Recon Robotics.

In addition to those systems, the REF used the venue of AUSA Winter 2012 Winter to highlight its exploration of two new platforms, dubbed Project RHEX and Project Sand Flea. Both systems are being explored for their observation and surveillance capabilities.
