Since its introduction more than 15 years ago, QinetiQ North America’s TALON family of robots has earned a reputation for durability, flexibility, modularity and performance in keeping personnel, assets and civilians out of harm’s way.

In military, law enforcement and first responder applications, these lightweight tracked vehicles are widely deployed for improvised explosive device (IED) and explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), reconnaissance, communications, CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive), HAZMAT, security, heavy lift, defense and rescue missions.

TALON’s have been used worldwide, from Ground Zero after the 2001 World Trade Center attack, to IRAQ and Afghanistan, searching for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect and assisting with security during major sporting events.

More than 4,000 TALON’s have been deployed globally and used for counter-improvised explosive device missions, police operations and domestic and international hazardous material missions. TALONs have participated in approximately 300,000 combat missions and have defeated over 50,000 IEDs.  On average, a U.S. military TALON robot in Iraq and Afghanistan is repaired as many as 13 times from significant IED damage.
