Designed to navigate rough terrain, the robot promises to serve as a tool for autonomous reconnaissance and surveillance missions in addition to performing counter-terrorism tasks.

The new multi-legged defense robot is expected to join a growing number of military robots including Hyundai Rotem’s DOSS (daring operations in service and search) leg-wheel military robot, which was introduced during the Seoul International Aerospace & Defense Exhibition 2021.
