ReconRobotics, Inc.'s Recon Scout SearchStick pole enables police tactical teams and military personnel to use any two-wheeled Recon Scout reconnaissance robot as they would a pole cam. Equipped with actuated jaws that are used to grasp the 1.2-pound robot, the SearchStick pole is 20.5 inches long when fully retracted, but can be extended to 72 inches. This allows an operator to easily see over a 12-foot wall or into a second story window, all while maintaining protective cover. Throughout such inspections the robot transmits live video to a handheld Operator Control Unit (OCU), providing operators with vital situational awareness that protects the lives of soldiers and tactical personnel during high-risk operations. The SearchStick can also be used to quietly place a robot into an elevated or confined space, where it can then search the environment for adversaries, IEDs or other threats. Once the inspection has been completed, the operator can use the jaws on the SearchStick to retrieve the robot. Zistos Corporation, a world leader in pole camera technology, will manufacture the SearchStick for ReconRobotics.
