Short Range UAVs & UGVs
While UAVs have taken over above the battlefield, UGVs have found their own niche. When safety precludes sending in a manned presence, the first call is for a robotic explorer. Recent events have seen UGVs deployed as bomb disarmament robots, oil pipeline explorers, and as disaster response in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. As UGVs are sent into tighter and tighter areas, the need for a small, lightweight, reliable video return link continues to grow.
