The Transportable Interoperable Ground Robot (TIGR) is a medium-sized, two-man carried UGV. The TIGR is a highly mobile, all weather system capable of operating in any terrain. TIGR incorporates best in class day and night vision modules that expedite IEDD search and CBRN survey operations. The two-meter reach of the 6 DOF manipulator allows the TIGR to effectively search/access a broad spectrum of environments, therefore facilitating EOD Render Safe operations in critical situations. The TIGR’s modular design ensures that the most advanced manipulators, CBRN, and EOD payloads can be employed now and in the future. TIGR’s innovative design and integrated technology maximizes safe stand-off distances, expedites mission completion, and keeps warfighters and first responders out of harm’s way.
