TiaLinx Inc. debuts the Cougar10-L all-terrain mini-robot system. The lightweight and agile mini-robot with tractable arm functions as a sense-through-the-wall imager and as an underground unexploded ordnance (UXO) and cavity detection unit that can be controlled at an extended standoff distance.

The robot can be integrated with TiaLinx's variety of UWB multi-Gigahertz RF sensors for extended standoff surveillance of a premise for moving objects as well as scanning for underground objects.

A software-controlled interface integrated into a laptop is used to remotely guide the Cougar10-L at long range to perform mission-critical tasks. Integrated multiple cameras allow day and night visibility of a premise under surveillance for enhanced situational awareness.

There is an RF scanner mounted on a lightweight arm which transmits wideband signals that are directional and can penetrate reinforced concrete wall at an extended range. In the receiver, a signal detector circuit is employed to capture the reflections from targets. Amplitude and delay information are then processed in an integrated signal processor.
