QinetiQ Introduces Micro-Robot for Military Missions
- Dragon Runner 10 - The ideal robot for dismounted forces
The warfighter uses a wearable controller to send DR10 in first, to assess the situation in advance. Whether it's being driven or thrown into a potentially hostile area, DR10 can quickly gain situational awareness and report information back to the operator. Its day and night sensors enable DR10 to serve as the team's forward eyes and ears, while carrying out critical missions such as Explosive Ordnance Disposal, setting counter-IED charges, delivering remote sensors, gathering intelligence and conducting surveillance.

"Military robotic missions save lives, and if possible, it's better to send the robot in first," said QinetiQ North America Technology Solutions Group President JD Crouch. "Dragon Runner 10 is a practical solution that makes it easier to carry and operate sophisticated robots in theater."
