Smaller. Lighter. Incredibly capable. The Dragon Runner 10 (DR-10) Micro Unmanned Ground Vehicle (MUGV) is a lightweight, compact, multi-mission remote platform developed for supporting small unit, dismounted operations. Using a wearable controller, the warfighter sends DR-10 in first to gain situational awareness and take action. DR-10s day and night sensors enable it to serve as the teams forward eyes and ears while also delivering remote sensors, setting counter-IED charges and more.
Dragon Runner SUGV was originally developed for the U.S. Marine Corps. The basic model Dragon Runner weighs 14 lbs and measures just 12.2 x 16.6 x 6 inches. The basic Dragon Runner gave users the ability to see around corners in urban environments. Engineers and roboticists in the QinetiQ North America Technology Solutions Group have developed enhancements that make it possible for personnel in the field to take the basic Dragon Runner SUGV (small unmanned ground vehicle) and add whatever combination of treads, cameras, sensors and/or arms a mission requires.
QinetiQ North America's TALON robots are powerful, durable, lightweight tracked vehicles that are widely used for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), reconnaissance, communications, sensing, security, defence and rescue. They feature all-weather, day/night and amphibious capabilities and can navigate virtually any terrain.
The TALON is fast and mobile, able to climb stairs, negotiate rock piles, overcome concertina wire and plow through snow. These rugged robots have been used worldwide, from the 2001 WTC attack to Iraq, where one TALON, after being blown off a bridge and into the river below, was driven out of the river and onto the bank by its operators for retrieval.

The Tactical Robot Controller (or TRC) is the latest innovation out of QinetiQ North Americas Unmanned Systems Group. Engineered in cooperation with the US Marines, the TRC is a lightweight, wearable controller that allows tactical units to control a family of unmanned ground vehicles, various unmanned air vehicles, and unattended ground sensors a wide variety of platforms made by different companies all controlled by the TRC.
The TRC is the most lightweight, versatile, wearable unmanned system controller in the world today.
The operator simply attaches the communications pack for the system that they want to control, selects the application on the touch screen, and begins to command the platform.
