Roboteam, a developer of tactical ground robotic systems, has announced that it has unveiled its new Transportable Interoperable Ground Robot (TIGR) at AUSA 2017 in Washington, D.C.

“The TIGR’s interoperability makes it the most effective counter-IED technology on the battlefield,” said Shahar Abuhazira, CEO of Roboteam, Inc. “Our family of tactical robots provide users with complete situational awareness to help soldiers complete missions safely and successfully. With the creation of the TIGR, Roboteam has excelled from a technological standpoint and with respect to our ability to match our niche capabilities to the U.S. Military’s critical demands. TIGR is just one more example of Roboteam’s commitment to quality, reliability and operability.”

The TIGR is a two-man carried UGV (unmanned ground vehicle) with a modular design allowing for add-ons, sensors and future technology integration. It is a highly mobile, all-weather system capable of operating in any terrain. TIGR incorporates state-of-the-art day and night vision and six HD video cameras. A tactical five-degree-of-freedom manipulator provides operators with high dexterity for complex EOD missions, CBRN survey operations, hazardous material incident response, and subterranean and culvert inspection. TIGR provides a holistic robotic approach to defeat virtually any threat, in any environment.

Roboteam will also be unveiling next generation versions of its Individual Robotic Intelligence System (IRIS), and Probot, as well as the RSTR – a UGV with flight capabilities – during AUSA 2017.
