Teledyne FLIR Defense New SUGV 325 Portable Modular Robot

Teledyne FLIR Defense, part of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY), announced today at Eurosatory the official launch of its new SUGV™ 325 portable and modular robot.

The SUGV 325 is a single-person-carry unmanned ground platform offering a versatile solution for dismounted and mobile operations. In its lightest configuration the rugged SUGV 325 weighs only about 20 pounds (9.1 kg), making it easy to carry while also able to traverse rough terrain and climb stairs. The robot’s advanced manipulator arm features five degrees of freedom, enabling users to conduct highly delicate and complex tasks. 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.

Our new SUGV 325 delivers enhanced portability and technology that make a wide range of operations easier for warfighters. 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.
