CLINTON, Tenn., Oct. 19 (UPI) -- U.S. company Remotec Inc. reports it will begin deliveries next month of its newest unmanned ground vehicle.

The Titus, part of the company's Andros line of UGVs, is 27 inches long, 16 inches wide, 23 inches high and weighs 135 pounds.

Top speed is 7.5 miles per hour.

Remotec, a subsidiary of Northrop Grumman, said the system's operator control unit features a hybrid touch-screen and physical controls like those on electronic game systems.

Designed with a modular approach, the robot has removable articulators, wheels and tracks and can carry a variety of sensor payloads, Remotec said.

"Titus represents the next-generation Andros," said Mike Knopp, director, Northrop Grumman Remotec. "When we designed Titus, we challenged our engineers to not only retain certain capabilities but also to innovate and add capabilities -- to really make the platform robust, highly functional and easy to use.

"With Titus, we're now offering our customers an additional class of unmanned ground vehicles that are smaller, stronger and smarter to meet a number of new and emerging threats."

Delivery details were not disclosed.
