A Northrop Grumman subsidiary has developed a new modular ground robot for manipulating objects and navigating pathways of up to 16 inches, the company announced Wednesday.

Titus, made by Remotec and scheduled for delivery in December, is and the newest and smallest member of Remotec’s Andros line of unmanned ground vehicles at 135 pounds, 27 inches long, 16 inches wide and 23 inches high.

It also travels at speeds of up to 7.5 miles per hour, retains Andros’ four-articulator design and has a operator control unit containing a touchscreen with physical controls similar to a gaming system, the company said.

“When we designed Titus, we challenged our engineers to not only retain certain capabilities but also to innovate and add capabilities,” said Mike Knopp, a Remotec director.

Knopp said Remotec has worked with first responders for more than 20 years on robotic technologies and has received positive feedback from first responders and U.S. and international militaries.

The robot also contains chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear sensors along with Ethernet and USB connections.

The company demonstrated Titus at the National Press Club earlier this week, see him in action below:
