ReconRobotics reaches delivery milestone
ReconRobotics has announced that it has sold more than 4,000 robots to military and police organisations, following recent deliveries to police agencies in the US, the UK and the Netherlands.
This milestone places ReconRobotics only second to iRobot in the production of unmanned ground systems. The company counts more than 800 police and counterterrorism teams, as well as the US military and allied friendly forces among its customer base.
The company’s Throwbot XT and Recon Scout XL are among its most recent sales. These robots protect operators by providing immediate situational awareness and greater standoff distance during high-risk operations. These capabilities protect personnel from hidden threats, enhance mission planning and execution, and minimise collateral damage.
Alan Bignall, president and CEO, ReconRobotics, said: ‘When we came on the scene in 2007, all military and police robots were large and complex and were operated only by trained experts. Our vision was radically different: give warfighters and SWAT operators an incredibly simple, personal system that weighed one pound and enabled them to remotely deploy video, infrared and audio sensors to reveal hidden threats. What we are most proud of is the countless lives these 4,000 deployed systems have saved over the last six years.’
