The Leader in Micro-Robot Systems Announces Major Rebranding


And Launches Redesigned Website

EDINA, MN – May 22, 2018 – ReconRobotics, Inc., the world leader in tactical micro-robot systems, announced a rebranding of the company and redesigned website to align with the launch of a new product, the Throwbot® 2 robot.

Mack Traynor, Chief Executive Officer at ReconRobotics, said, “Enhancing the safety and saving lives of responding personnel and civilians through improved reconnaissance, particularly in volatile and dangerous situations, continues to gain strategic importance to our military and law enforcement customers. ReconRobotics delivers a proprietary combination of engineering, durability and technology through our line of micro-robots and accessories to gain critical reconnaissance. Our robots can help locate subjects, determine if subjects are armed, confirm presence of hostages and reveal the layout of rooms while improving safety for all those involved. We feel our new brand is better aligned with our overall mission, product development plan and sales strategy and is one of the reasons we timed the rebrand with the launch of our newest product, the Throwbot® 2 micro robot.”

The rebranding includes a top-to-bottom redesign of the company’s website, logo, graphics, communications and correspondence. The new website offers a variety of enhancements including improvements to speed, design and user experience.

Customers will notice changes to the layout, design, menus, navigation, and search function. Customer and employee feedback was used during the planning process to make improvements.

The Throwbot® 2 is a throw-able, micro-robot system enabling operators to secure instantaneous video and audio reconnaissance within indoor and outdoor environments.

  • The total system weighs approximately 3 pounds (in default mode).
  • Is equipped with an infrared optical system that automatically turns on when the ambient light is low.
  • Video and audio can transmit up to 150 feet (45 meters) through walls, windows and doors to the OCU II.

Once deployed, the robot can be directed to move through a structure transmitting real-time video and audio to the OCU II allowing the operator to locate and identify subjects while revealing the room layout.

Use with a Recon Scout® SearchStick™ and the robot will function as a pole camera allowing you to inspect attics, rooftops and crawl spaces.
