June 1, 2016: General Robotics Ltd. – a leader in the development, manufacture and marketing of advanced robotic systems for defense and homeland security – unveils, for the first time, DOGO, a lightweight tactical combat robot capable of carrying light weapons. The company also launches Pitbull, an ultra-lightweight weapon station with integral sensors for accurate and fast detection and counter fire capabilities.

Weighing only 12 kilos, DOGO was designed for Special Forces, SWAT teams, and infantrymissions,and can maneuver across difficult terrain as well as climb stairs. Light weapons can be quickly attached to DOGO and easily operated (Point& Shoot). DOGO can also integrate with non-lethal modules. The robot includes eight video cameras that provide 360° images and boresight views, and it is outfitted with the means to communicate in hostage situations.

Pitbull, a very lightweight weapon station weighing only 50 kilos, includes unique sensor systems that enable accurate detection of hostile fire, and can respond in a matter of seconds. It also includes a miniaturized radar system for detection of targets under harsh weather conditions. These two systems together enable fast and accurate detection regarding the direction of hostile fire, as well as automatic immediate return of fire. Pitbull is easily installed on all types of vehicles and stationary positions, and can be integrated with existing sensor systems.

According to Ehud Gal, CEO and President, “Our solutions were developed to enhance force protection and enable real-time situational awareness and response. Being lightweight, both the DOGO and the Pitbull are easy and fast to deploy and are suitable for every type of mission in the field. Interest in these solutions has already been expressed by various agencies around the world.”
