SPUR – Squad-Packable Utility Robot

QinetiQ North America released SPUR – Squad-Packable Utility Robot as the newest member of its interoperative tactical land robot family. SPUR revolutionises robotic capability for dismounted forces with its rapid deployment from its stowed state, tactical mobility and radio range, high-performance manipulator arm and QNA’s proven UC-LITE universal controller.

Designed to be back-packable, this small Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) features advanced sensors and mission modules for dismounted forces to enhance mission capabilities. The system is transported by a single MOLLE II Assault Pack with a controller, pan-tilt-zoom camera and manipulator arm. It deploys from the assault pack, without tools in less than a minute, enabling a quick reaction to be tasked with a mission.

SPUR provides exceptional strength, mobility and endurance and easily navigates through rocks, water, sand and other rough terrain. Weighing less than 13 kg, it nimbly climbs stairs and surmounts obstacles, yet it operates effectively in culverts and sewer pipes that wider robots cannot penetrate due to its size.

  • Tactical mobility
  • Lightweight
  • Rapid deployment without tools
  • Compact foldable design
  • Transported in Molle II assault pack
  • UC-LITE for universal control
