Developed by Rheinmetall Defense, Foxbot is a small radio-controlled robot featuring semi-autonomous capabilities, supporting surveillance and recce missions. The robot is fitted with EO and acoustical sensors and is designed to operate at the tactical level. The robot uses a mast mounted omni-directional acoustic sensor, enabling location and tracking of detected signals with stereo acoustic capability, enabling effective spatial reconstruction of the signal.
