Codarra Advanced Systems is developing the SILVERBACK Unmanned Ground Vehicle to provide remote control reconnaissance. Multi-terrain capable and equipped with 16-hour endurance (with the option to increase range using additional fuel tanks), SILVERBACK is designed for extended loiter.
SILVERBACK possesses video surveillance and audio communications that combines with its manipulator arm to distinguish it from other passive surveillance platforms. SILVERBACK can enhance the survivability of personnel by improving their situational awareness, and reducing their exposure to unnecessary risks from land-based threats.
The SILVERBACK development path has the flexibility to include user-defined technologies. The current plan includes laser-range finder, deployable sensor devices, motion detectors and high-assurance weapon-control systems.
