What robots, less than 15 lbs, can be used for entering difficult terrain and buildings?

DSIAC was asked to provide a list of potential unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) with maneuverability in difficult terrain and the ability to enter buildings.  The UGVs of interest needed to be less than 15 lbs, carry a payload of sensors and other equipment, and can use a variety of locomotion methods.  DSIAC staff investigated unclassified data using the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) database for unmanned systems and robotics research and provided the relevant information, including platforms names, locomotion methods, market categories, applications, primary organizations, countries, points of contact (POCs), and websites. This report is available in the DTIC R&E Gateway.
