13 September 2017

Roboteam has commenced full-scale production of its Probot V2 hybrid platforms.

An initial delivery of 40 platforms are to be provided to two US government agencies and one allied government agency, including the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Probot V2 is an advanced version of its predecessor with new software (updated IOP-compliant), a gasoline-fuelled generator, and two new and improved batteries. The new batteries have extended the operating endurance from 10 hours to 72 hours over a range of 96.5 km (60 miles) with the generator. The generator adds in the region of between 9 kg and 13 kg and can be used to charge the batteries.
