Recon Robotics Launch New Throwbot 2

Recon Robotics Throwbot 2
The Throwbot® 2 (TB2) robot is a throwable micro-robot platform that enables operators to obtain instantaneous video and audio reconnaissance within indoor or outdoor environments.  Designed to withstand repeated drops of up to 30 feet (9 m) onto concrete, the Throwbot® 2 robot can be thrown into hazardous situations in order to allow operators to quickly make informed decisions when seconds count.

This micro-robot is designed to be able to crawl over a variety of terrain, clearing obstacles up to 2″ (5 cm) tall.  Conversion kits are available which can increase the ability of the Throwbot® 2 robot to cross obstacles up to 4″ (10 cm) tall or to carry and tow a combined 4 lbs (1.8 kg) of payloads using integrated mount points or a Picatinny Rail accessory.

Key Features

  • ULTRA-QUIET – The Throwbot 2 robot is incredibly stealthy.  When configured with the Carry and Tow Conversion Kit, it is less than 59 dBa at 1 m.
  • DAY AND NIGHT OPERATION – Equipped with a colour camera and an infrared illumination system that automatically turns on when the ambient light is low.
  • AUDIO – Can transmit video and audio up to 150 feet (45m) through walls or 450 feet (137 m) outdoors line of sight, windows and doors to the OCU II.
  • WATER/DUST RESISTANT – IP66 and IP67 Compliant.
