Sometimes Soldiers hunting for the enemy in both urban and tactical environments need the ability to examine potential threats safely, and track the enemy into enclosed spaces; the SUGV
gives them this ability.
The 35-pound 310 SUGV
system provides the dismounted Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technician with the ability to perform reconnaissance during extremely hazardous EOD missions involving unexploded ordnance and improvised explosive devices.
The FCS contains two classes of UGVs: the SUGV
and Mulifunctional Utility/Logistics and Equipment (MULE) Vehicle.
The iRobot 310 SUGV
is a tactical mobile robot that gathers situational awareness in dangerous conditions for warfighters and public safety professionals.
According to iRobot, the new SUGV
is a smaller and lighter version of iRobot PackBot, capable of entering areas that are inaccessible or too dangerous for people.
FCS was canceled in 2009 but its small unmanned autonomous ground vehicle, or SUGV
, program survived.
The equipment, like the SUGV
and UGS, makes it easier to clear an objective because a unit can focus on completing a mission instead of worrying about the Soldiers on rear-guard, he said.
In the second quarter, iRobot announced approximately $27 million in new Defense & Security contracts for SUGV
and PackBot robots, spares and software upgrades that will be delivered over the remainder of 2012.
YOU'LL NEED TO SEND THE SUGV
TO HIGHER LEVEL MAINTENANCE TO BE CHECKED OUT.
The Army claims that one SUGV
can be packed into a standard "molle" rucksack.
