Advanced robotic solutions to increase the safety of our troops



We All Want Our Troops To Return Home Safely

Warfare is inevitable. Mass casualties should not be. Our defense technology is changing constantly, but until now, there has never been a solution that truly prevents casualties. Troops can use TIKAD to handle potentially dangerous situations quickly and efficiently from the air, reducing the need to send our sons and daughters into harm’s way. This technology also allows troops to potentially disarm a situation remotely, without ever deploying a ground presence.

Introducing TIKAD

Duke Robotics brings a fully robotic weaponry system to an airborne platform. TIKAD, which is a proprietary development of Duke, uses the delivery of a unique suppression firing and stabilization solution. TIKAD allows governments to utilize completely new capabilities against terrorist groups and reduce the number of deployed ground troops, and therefore, the number of casualties.

The new face of military technology.

The TIKAD can be deployed above water and ends with a minimum risk situation. Until now, troops had to be there to investigate.

The TIKAD is designed with a lightweight, real-time 6 DOF (degrees of freedom) Robotic gimbal. It has the ability to carry and stabilize up to 3x the weight of the gimbal.

The TIKAD  is remotely operated, user-friendly and can easily be carried in the field.
