U.S. Army Awards $13.9M Contract to ReconRobotics

ReconRobotics has recently declared that it has received a $13.9 M worth contract for 1,000 of its miniature, throwable, mobile robots from the U.S. Army’s Rapid Equipping Force.

The Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract will simplify the purchasing process for rapid delivery on the company’s pre-priced micro-robot systems and for deploying Army and Marine Corps units. With Recon’s micro-robots, the U.S. Military will provide immediate tactical reconnaissance to four- and five-man fire teams during surveillance missions, counter-IED efforts, and urban warfare operations. Under this contract, ReconRobotics has started supplying the first order for 84 robots.

The 2007-launch of throwable 1.2-lb Recon Scout micro-robot made ReconRobotics as a well-known company having a new class of military robots. Unlike the previously used bulky (30-80 lbs of weight) military robots, the current warfighter can lift compactly packed Throwbot XT, followed by quick deployment within 5 s to achieve lifesaving video and audio reconnaissance. This potential clearly reveals the presence of civilians, the number of enemy combatants, and the locations of improvised explosive devices (IEDs). At present, over 2,000 of the Recon’s robots have been deployed in Afghanistan.

Over 4,600 Recon Scout micro-robots are under contract or being deployed globally. With its small size and simple deployment capabilities, these micro-robots can be lowered into crawl spaces or caves, or thrown up to 120 ft to investigate weapons caches and other hidden threats.

ReconRobotics launched the Throwbot XT on June 8. With an automatic, infrared optical system, the Throwbot XT micro-robot delivers audio eavesdropping capabilities as well as video reconnaissance to U.S. troops.

Recon Scout robots provide efficient tactical reconnaissance for high-risk operations to over 500 police and security agencies as well as allied military and police forces, globally.

/ About us

Founded by Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov in February 2011 with the participation of leading Russian specialists in the field of neural interfaces, robotics, artificial organs and systems.

The main goals of the 2045 Initiative: the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimale conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high technologies. 

The main science mega-project of the 2045 Initiative aims to create technologies enabling the transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality. We devote particular attention to enabling the fullest possible dialogue between the world’s major spiritual traditions, science and society.

A large-scale transformation of humanity, comparable to some of the major spiritual and sci-tech revolutions in history, will require a new strategy. We believe this to be necessary to overcome existing crises, which threaten our planetary habitat and the continued existence of humanity as a species. With the 2045 Initiative, we hope to realize a new strategy for humanity's development, and in so doing, create a more productive, fulfilling, and satisfying future.

The "2045" team is working towards creating an international research center where leading scientists will be engaged in research and development in the fields of anthropomorphic robotics, living systems modeling and brain and consciousness modeling with the goal of transferring one’s individual consciousness to an artificial carrier and achieving cybernetic immortality.

An annual congress "The Global Future 2045" is organized by the Initiative to give platform for discussing mankind's evolutionary strategy based on technologies of cybernetic immortality as well as the possible impact of such technologies on global society, politics and economies of the future.


Future prospects of "2045" Initiative for society


The emergence and widespread use of affordable android "avatars" controlled by a "brain-computer" interface. Coupled with related technologies “avatars’ will give people a number of new features: ability to work in dangerous environments, perform rescue operations, travel in extreme situations etc.
Avatar components will be used in medicine for the rehabilitation of fully or partially disabled patients giving them prosthetic limbs or recover lost senses.


Creation of an autonomous life-support system for the human brain linked to a robot, ‘avatar’, will save people whose body is completely worn out or irreversibly damaged. Any patient with an intact brain will be able to return to a fully functioning  bodily life. Such technologies will  greatly enlarge  the possibility of hybrid bio-electronic devices, thus creating a new IT revolution and will make  all  kinds of superimpositions of electronic and biological systems possible.


Creation of a computer model of the brain and human consciousness  with the subsequent development of means to transfer individual consciousness  onto an artificial carrier. This development will profoundly change the world, it will not only give everyone the possibility of  cybernetic immortality but will also create a friendly artificial intelligence,  expand human capabilities  and provide opportunities for ordinary people to restore or modify their own brain multiple times.  The final result  at this stage can be a real revolution in the understanding of human nature that will completely change the human and technical prospects for humanity.


This is the time when substance-independent minds will receive new bodies with capacities far exceeding those of ordinary humans. A new era for humanity will arrive!  Changes will occur in all spheres of human activity – energy generation, transportation, politics, medicine, psychology, sciences, and so on.

Today it is hard to imagine a future when bodies consisting of nanorobots  will become affordable  and capable of taking any form. It is also hard to imagine body holograms featuring controlled matter. One thing is clear however:  humanity, for the first time in its history, will make a fully managed evolutionary transition and eventually become a new species. Moreover,  prerequisites for a large-scale  expansion into outer space will be created as well.
