Teledyne FLIR Defense, part of Teledyne Technologies, announced at Eurosatory the launch of its new Kobra 725 modular robot. The tracked multi-mission platform delivers new capabilities and technology upgrades to the Kobra 710 unmanned ground system, with the lift capacity and mobility customers demand for operations in harsh conditions.
The robot’s advanced manipulator arm can lift heavy loads and stretches to a height of nearly four meters to access hard-to-reach places. At less than 250 kg, the Kobra 725 is highly maneuverable, even in rough terrain, climbs stairs, and even surmounts jersey barriers. New technology includes full-HD cameras, wide angle visual/thermal mobility cameras, field-swappable radio modules, and AES-256 encryption.
Kobra 725’s features make it suited for military applications such as Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD)/counter-vehicle-borne IED missions, remote CBRN detection, weapon integration, and reconnaissance, as well as other tough jobs from building safety and hazmat inspections to nuclear power maintenance.
