Perform Multiple Tasks
In Diverse Environments

  • Deployment in challenging and hazardous outdoor and indoor environments
  • Data acquisition, recording, reporting
  • Payload and sensor transport/operations
  • Autonomous robot targets and swarms
  • Autonomous ops in unmapped areas
  • Semi-autonomous ops via GPS waypoints

  • Repetitive monitoring/measurement tasks in most weather/terrain/light conditions
  • Carrying/maneuvering heavy loads and diverse types of sensors and payloads

Three Modes
Autonomous, Semi-Autonomous, and Manual

  • Semi-Autonomous - GPS Waypoints - Users can input a series of geographic waypoints via the mobile controller. Nanuk will follow the specified path from origin to end point and return to origin.
  • Autonomous - Wander and React - Nanuk will navigate a random pattern, detecting/avoiding obstacles. Optionally, it can react to any perceived threats or obstacles and take evasive action.
  • Manual or Autonomous - Return Home - Nanuk can return to start position autonomously and on command.
  • Manual - Users can take control of all Nanuk functions via the remote controller at any time.

Additional Control Features
Customizable for Your Needs

  • Geo-fencing - Ensures Nanuk doesn’t leave specified boundaries or areas.
  • UGV Mobile Controller - Direct, remote control of one or more Nanuk UGVs.
  • Configuration Scenarios - Users can specify Nanuk goals and paths.
  • Maps - Creation of 2D and 3D occupancy and other maps.
  • Standard Onboard Sensors - 3D LiDAR, IMU, 2D/3D cameras, GPS, wheel encoders, laser distance sensors.

Robotic Target
For Ballistic Training

  • Nanuk Model 200 UGV can be used as a robotic target for ballistic training.
  • Includes autonomous and semi-autonomous navigation features of the standard Model 200.
  • Armored to withstand ballistic impacts up to .50 caliber rounds.
  • Detects and indicates ballistic impacts using visual signals and reports to the control unit.​​​​​​​
  • Can be equipped with 2D and 3D targets, representing human figures or full-size vehicles.
