The Recon Scout® (OCU II) is equipped with integral, rotating antennas that are always attached, making for quicker activation and increased robustness. The OCU II works with the Throwbot® XT and any new Recon Scout® micro-robot, including the Recon Scout IR, Recon Scout UVI and Recon Scout Throwbot LE. The OCU II is matched to the robot at the time of manufacturing and can be specified in any one of the ReconRobotics frequency channels. When paired with the Throwbot XT, it is capable of receiving both audio and video transmissions from the robot, and comes equipped with Audio Out and Video Out jacks.

The company’s incredibly successful Recon Scout and Throwbot systems are distinguished from all other tactical robots by their small size, exceptional durability and ease of use. Once the robot has been deployed, it can be directed to move through the environment and transmit video back to a 1.6lb handheld Operator Control Unit (OCU). This Know Before You Go® capability enables soldiers, EOD personnel, urban search and rescue teams and law enforcement officers to gain critical situational awareness before they enter the environment.
