Unmanned Systems Provider Expands Product Offerings with CoroBot and Explorer Robots

CoroWare Technologies, a subsidiary of CoroWare, Inc. (OCBB: COWI) today announced it has entered into a distribution agreement with Auxilia, Inc. an unmanned systems (UMS) integration company, for its CoroBot and Explorer lines of mobile robots.

Under the agreement and effective immediately, Auxilia will expand its UMS product offerings to include CoroWare’s CoroBot and Explorer mobile robotic product lines. 

“In our first sale together, to the next generation of US Army Junior Leadership, we are gratified to provide the latest tactical unmanned system,” said Donald DeVito, CEO of Auxilia. “Using the CoroWare system, we will train in tactics, techniques and procedures to extend the capabilities of the soldier in the field.”

Auxilia’s core business is to facilitate, develop and apply UMS applications in military, government and private sectors. By extending the capabilities of these sectors, Auxilia meets the challenges of global defense, homeland and infrastructure security, and emergency response through the use of unmanned systems—air, land and aquatic. 

CoroBot and Explorer are four-wheeled mobile robots with open-ended designs to facilitate research and development.  Equipped with 1.5 and 2.0 GHz CPU processors respectively, CoroWare’s family of robots are capable of running robust applications.  Ample mounting space on both machines enables developers to add peripheral hardware such as laser range finders, GPS, and other environmental sensing equipment.

“We are excited to include Auxilia as a distributor of the CoroBot and Explorer platforms,” said Jon Mandrell, Vice President of CoroWare.  “I believe their presence in the homeland security and military markets can open doors that may otherwise be closed to small companies like CoroWare.”
