Dragon Runner SUGV
Dragon Runner, Field Transformable Robot
The lightweight, robust, easy to operate Dragon Runner Small Unmanned Ground Vehicle (DR-SUGV), originally developed for the U.S. Marine Corps, is modular and can be reconfigured in the field. It has been upgraded to:
• Expand its mission capabilities by providing tracks for mobility and a manipulator arm, rotating wrist and gripper add-ons.
• Extend communication range while providing the user field changeable frequency capabilities using analog or digital radio options.
• Standardize vehicle and operator control unit batteries so they can be taken from available government inventory to reduce cost and improve sustainability.
• Provide a maintenance and support plan from our factory to worldwide users, permitting module level repair and sustainment.
The DR-SUGV operator control unit is intuitive and easy to use. It includes a quad-screen mode to provide four simultaneous camera views or any one individual view.
