TiaLinx Inc. unveils the remotely controlled Cougar20-H mini-robot system that provides long standoff surveillance of a premise to track movement as well as to detect motionless live objects.

The mini-robot features a tractable arm has been integrated with TiaLinx's fine beam UWB, multi-Gigahertz RF sensor array. The system TiaLinx's real-time UWB RF Imaging development was sponsored by an SBIR Phase II from the Army's PEO AMMO, PM-CCS.

The robot can be remotely guided from long distances to perform mission-critical tasks through a software-controlled interface which is integrated into a laptop. Integrated multiple cameras allow day and night visibility of a premise under surveillance for enhanced situational awareness. Capability to probe the compound at standoff keeps the Cougar20-H out of harm's way.

The RF scanner is mounted on a lightweight arm and transmits wideband signals that are highly 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.
