The Battlefield Extraction-Assist Robot

The Battlefield Extraction-Assist Robot, or BEAR, is the flagship of College Park (MD) based Vecna Robotics. The robot combines a hyper-agile mobility platform with dynamic balancing and a high-strength upper body, all in humanoid form. Designed to find, pick up and rescue people in harm's way, the humanoid BEAR robot can do what humans can't: Lift heavy loads and carry them long distances. Whether on a battlefield, in a nuclear reactor core, near a toxic chemical spill, or inside a structurally-compromised building after an earthquake, the BEAR can rescue those in need as well as or better than humans can, without risking additional human life.
