Pentagon Fast-Tracks Deployment of Israeli-Designed Robot


idf-robotThe U.S. Defense Department is fast-tracking deployment of an Israeli-designed, stair-climbing Micro Tactical Ground Robot (MTGR) to support special operations and explosive ordnance disposal forces.

MTGR provides capabilities to identify IED threats from a safe standoff range and is produced in the U.S. by Roboteam.

Yosi Wolf, co-founder and co-chief executive of Roboteam, is a six-year veteran of an Israel Air Force special ops unit.

He noted, “Based on feedback from friends in the Israeli special forces, we made sure our touch screens could be operated while wearing gloves and night-vision devices.”
“For day operations, we also made sure our displays are clearly visible in the brightest sunshine.”
