The 310 SUGV (Small Unmanned Ground Vehicle) is portable, weighing 29 pounds without payloads. It will fit into a standard MOLLE pack. It is compact, measuring only 17.2 inches wide (with flippers) and 30 inches long (when flippers are extended). It can travel at speeds up to 6.2 miles per hour and climb 8 inch stairs. Because the 310 SUGV is controlled with a familiar game-style remote, soldiers will not have to train long to learn to control it. The 310 SUGV can operate 3280 feet (1000 meters) away from the controller.
