Man-transportable, multi-mission robot

The PackBot 525 brings new and improved capabilities to the PackBot product line. Upgrades include state-of-the-art HD cameras, a laser range finder, optional in-situ charging, and more advanced accessory ports. PackBot deploys in under two minutes to assist with bomb disposal, surveillance and reconnaissance, CBRN detection, HazMat handling operations, and much more.

PackBot easily climbs stairs and navigates narrow passages, relaying real-time video, audio, and sensor data while the operator remains at a safer stand-off distance. The PackBot manipulator lifts up to 44 lb (20 kg) and supports numerous accessories, sensors, and disruptor solutions.

PackBot is controlled from 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.PackBot uses the MPU5 radio operating on the Wave Relay MANET to form a robust network in which robots, operators, and observers seamlessly operate together.
