NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- A mini-robot system that performs as a Sense-Through-the-Wall Imager and an underground ordnance detection unit has been launched by California's TiaLinx Inc.
TiaLinx said its Cougar10-L is a lightweight and agile mini-robot with tractable arm that can be integrated with TiaLinx's variety of ultra-wideband, multi-gigahertz RF sensors.
The company said the product's software-controlled interface, integrated into a laptop, allows the Cougar10-L to be remotely guided at lengthened ranges. Its RF Scanner is mounted on a lightweight arm and transmits wideband signals that are directional and can penetrate reinforced concrete wall at an extended range.
In the receiver, a signal detector circuit is employed to capture reflections from targets.
"TiaLinx's Cougar10-L solution addresses two distinct functions: scanning and imaging concealed objects behind a barrier vertically as well as horizontally," said Fred Mohamadi, founder and chief executive officer TiaLinx. "The disruptive Sense-Through-the-Wall imaging technology from TiaLinx has been integrated with an easy-to-carry, lightweight mini-robot to operate at standoff, hence keeping the operator out of harm's way."
