Israel-based General Robotics recently demonstrated its DOGO tactical robot system to the Special Forces of the Philippine Police. DOGO is a lightweight tactical combat robot capable of carrying light weapons, specially designed for Special Forces, SWAT teams, and infantry missions. The remotely-operated armed robot allows tactical response teams to minimize the risk of casualties.
“Integrating sensor-shooter capabilities in a remote-controlled robot allows tactical teams to deal with a wide range of scenarios,” says Shahar Gal, CEO of General Robotics. “The DOGO is designed to climb up and down stairs and can operate in both indoor and outdoor environments. It can be used by military and police forces for a variety of missions, including counter-terrorism and anti-drug operations, as well as armed robbery attacks.”
