The new SUGV™ 325 portable and modular robot has been announced by Teledyne FLIR Defense, part of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated at Eurosatory in Paris.

A single-person-carry unmanned ground platform, the SUGV 325 offers a versatile solution for dismounted and mobile defense operations and in its lightest configuration weighs only about 20 pounds (9.1 kg), making it easy to carry while also able to traverse rough terrain and climb stairs.

Featuring an advanced manipulator arm, which provides five degrees of freedom, the SUGV 325 enables users to conduct highly delicate and complex tasks required by military applications such as surveillance and reconnaissance, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), and remote Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) inspection.

Technology upgrades on the new SUGV 325 include an array of sensors, such as HD visible, long wave infrared (LWIR), and stitched 360-degree cameras, as well as 30x optical zoom and two-way audio communication.

Key features include:

  • Improved Mobility: With its enhanced portability and speeds up to 7 mph (11.3 kph), SUGV 325 can be rapidly deployed, allowing operators to quickly interrogate a device or target.
  • Expandable: An IOP-compliant payload open architecture accommodates a wide range of payloads and accessories, enabling operators to configure the robot to their mission.
  • Multi-Robot Control: The uPoint® Multi-Robot Control System features a tablet with touchscreen control as well as a hand-controller. Scales to various Android tablet sizes and is Nett Warrior and ATAK compatible.
  • Rugged and Durable: Connects to the Wave Relay® MANET to form a robust network; can lift close to 20 pounds (9.1 kg); on-board battery operation up to eight hours.

“Our new SUGV 325 delivers enhanced portability and technology that make a wide range of operations easier for our warfighters,” said Tung Ng, vice president of Unmanned Systems North America at Teledyne FLIR Defense. “With its superior mobility and situational awareness, this multi-mission robot gives users a highly-mobile system to keep them from harm’s way when interrogating threats.

“We’re proud to offer the new SUGV 325 as we continue innovating our entire portfolio of unmanned ground platforms for customers worldwide”.
