Squad-Packable Utility Robot
QinetiQ is proud to introduce SPUR as the newest member of its interoperative tactical land robot family and the named winner of the Common Robotic System – Individual (CRS(I)) program by the US Army. SPUR revolutionizes robotic capability for dismounted forces with its rapid deployment from its stowed state, tactical mobility and radio range, high-performance manipulator arm and QinetiQ’s proven UC-LITE universal controller.
Designed to be back-packable, SPUR is equipped with advanced sensors and mission modules for dismounted forces to enhance mission capabilities. SPUR is transported by a single MOLLE II Assault Pack with a controller, pan-tilt-zoom camera and manipulator arm. It is deployed from the assault pack, without tools in less than a minute, enabling a quick reaction to be tasked with a mission.
Like a bantamweight fighter, SPUR provides exceptional strength, mobility and endurance. SPUR can easily navigate through rocks, water, sand and other rough terrain. Weighing less than 28 pounds, SPUR can nimbly climb stairs and surmount obstacles, yet is sized to operate effectively in culverts and sewer pipes that wider robots cannot penetrate.
