FLIR

Firstlook

FirstLook is a throwable, rugged, and expandable robot that provides immediate situational awareness, performs persistent observation and investigates dangerous and hazardous material while keeping its operator out of harm’s way.

FirstLook allows operations where other robots can’t fit or maneuver. This rugged, lightweight robot can be inserted into structures and provides operators with visual, audio, and sensor feedback before entry. The robot climbs small obstacles, overcomes curbs, turns in place and self-rights when flipped over.


The Firstlook Robot

Firstlook

Throwable, rugged robot

FirstLook is a throwable, rugged and expandable robot that provides immediate situational awareness, performs persistent observation and investigates dangerous and hazardous material while maintaining a safer stand-off distance for operators. Quick to power-up, FirstLook can be deployed in a moment’s notice.

FirstLook allows operations where other robots can’t fit or maneuver. This rugged, lightweight robot can be inserted into structures and provides operators with visual, audio, and sensor feedback before entry. Maneuverable in a variety of environments, FirstLook climbs small obstacles, overcomes curbs, turns in place and self-rights when flipped over.

FirstLook is controllable from a variety of controllers, including the uPoint® Multi-Robot Control system, featuring a touchscreen-based tablet controller that allows an operator to select from across the family of connected robots. FirstLook uses the MPU5 radio operating on the Wave Relay MANET, to form a robust network in which robots, operators, and observers seamlessly operate together.

THROWABLE, RUGGED, AND MANEUVERABLE

Weighing 6.6 lb (3kg), FirstLook survives 16 ft (5 m) drops onto concrete.

HIGHLY MANEUVERABLE

FirstLook climbs obstacles up to 7” (17.8 cm) high, overcomes curbs, turns in place and self-rights when flipped over.

POWERFUL MULTI-SENSOR CAPABILITY

Four color cameras with zoom and illumination, plus audio capability are integrated into FirstLook. Optional CBRN/ HazMat sensors available.

CONTROLLABLE FROM THE UPOINT MULT-ROBOT CONTROL SYSTEM

Using the touchscreen-based ruggedized tablet controller, an operator can select from across the family of connected robots.

SUPERIOR COMMUNICATIONS

The MPU5 radio operating on the Wave Relay MANET, allows the robot to penetrate deeper into complex structures and further downrange than ever before.
