Throwbot® 2 Robot

The Throwbot® 2 (TB2) robot is a throwable micro-robot platform that enables operators to obtain instantaneous video and audio reconnaissance within indoor or outdoor environments.  Designed to withstand repeated drops of up to 30 feet (9 m) onto concrete, the Throwbot® 2 robot can be thrown into hazardous situations in order to allow operators to quickly make informed decisions when seconds count.  This micro-robot is designed to be able to crawl over a variety of terrain, clearing obstacles up to 2″ (5 cm) tall.  Conversion kits are available which can increase the ability of the Throwbot® 2 robot to cross obstacles up to 4″ (10 cm) tall or to carry and tow a combined 4 lbs (1.8 kg) of payloads using integrated mount points or a Picatinny Rail accessory.


Once deployed, the robot can be directed to move through a structure and transmit realtime video and audio to the OCU II. These reconnaissance features can locate and identify subjects, confirm presence of hostages and reveal the room layout.

When used with a Recon Scout® SearchStick, the unit can function as a pole camera facilitating the inspection of attics, rooftops and crawl spaces.

Barricade Subject Video

We have used robots that move, but they are too large to carry or throw, so they are ineffective on most calls. It was the multi-use capability of the Recon Scout that really appealed to our team – not only could we carry it and throw it, but we could also then guide it through the environment to learn more about a given situation.
