The Army recently used a QinetiQ North America robotic controller for two of the military branch’s unmanned vehicles, the company announced Wednesday.

Unmanned Systems Senior Vice President Ed Godere said the company’s controller weighs ten pounds, compared to standard controllers that weigh between 20 and 40 pounds.

Technology Solutions Group President JD Crouch said the tactical controller can command a variety of unmanned devices in the field at once, including ground robots and unattended sensors.

The Army used the controller for the Minotaur and Armadillo unmanned systems.

The Marine Corps uses the touchscreen controllers at its warfighting laboratory in Quantico, Va.

The company developed the controller for the Marines through a continuing contract with the Naval Surface Warfare Center.

The Defense Department recently awarded the company a $5.3 million contract for 100 surveillance robots to counter improved explosive devices.
