Endeavor Robotics has unveiled the design of its Scorpion unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) that it is pushing for the US Army’s Common Robotic System-Individual (CRS-I) programme. The Scorpion is a clean-sheet design weighing less than 11 kg. Its light weight ensures that it is backpackable and carried by one individual. The ruggedised, tracked platform is highly mobile and can traverse rough terrain, climb stairs, as well as operate in wet or submerged environments. The UGV can be controlled via a universal controller that features uPoint and MOCU-4 software, enabling operators to view and control other UGVs and UAVs simultaneously. The display can also present multiple video streams, while pre-set functions allow the operator to rapidly position the vehicle. “With Scorpion, we’ve incorporated a number of new design elements and technology that will directly benefit explosive ordnance disposal teams and the warfighter in general,” Endeavor CEO Sean Bielat told Jane’s . “Many of the advancements are around manipulation and mobility,” he said, noting that the UGV is equipped with a patented flipper design that enables it to be self-righting.
