On the first day of UMEX 2022, EDGE Group unveiled the SCORPIO-B – the newest member of its series of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs).
Designed to support military troops and security forces, SCORPIO-B can be equipped with remote weapon systems, twin 40mm grenade launchers, Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) sensors with the possibility to mount various payloads of up to 200kg.
SCORPIO-B can also be fitted for tactical overwatch, counter terrorism, Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) detection, communication relay, and other types of dangerous missions.
With a 30° slope gradient, 40km/h speed and track propulsion, the SCORPIO-B can easily access difficult terrains within cities and harsh environments. The all-in-one command and control station allows one or two operators to remotely operate the UGV functions and mission equipment systems up to 5km (Line Of Sight). This is further complemented by the ADASI mission planning and autopilot system.
ADASI is part of the Platforms & Systems cluster of EDGE Group. ADASI’s in-house R&D capabilities enable it to offer next generation unmanned systems capable of performing in a diverse array of operations in challenging environments.
“We are delighted to unveil the latest member of the SCORPIO series at UMEX 2022 – an exhibition dedicated to drones, robotics and unmanned systems and one of the most important events in our calendar,” said Ali Al Yafei, CEO of ADASI. “We are pleased to continue building our customers’ trust, nationally and internationally, through rigorous R&D of our autonomous capabilities to increase mission readiness and ultimately enable a secure future for all.”
