Man Transportable Robotic System, Increment II (MTRS Inc II)

A remotely operated, man-transportable, robotic system. MTRS Inc II provides a standoff capability to detect and confirm presence, identify disposition, and counter hazards by providing a base capability of carrying various platform payloads in support of current and future missions. MTRS Inc II supports Engineers, Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE), and Special Operations Forces.

Man Transportable Robotic System, Increment II


Common Robotic System – Individual (CRS(I))

A man-packable (< 25lbs), miniature, highly mobile, unmanned robotic system with advanced sensors and mission modules for dismounted forces.  Designed so that operators can quickly reconfigure for various missions by adding/removing modules and/or payloads.

Common Robotic System – Individual (CRS(I))


Common Robotic Platform Enabling Payloads to Address the Operational Capabilities Gaps:
