Guardian S Overview

Guardian® S

Remote Visual Inspection & Surveillance Robot

Meet Guardian S

A premier surveillance and inspection tool, the Guardian S robot is uniquely capable, cost-effective and easily portable, weighing approximately 17 lb (8 kg).

The robot can reliably traverse challenging terrain and facilitate two-way, real-time
video, voice and data communication,
all from a safe distance.

Guardian S Robot Use Cases

Public Safety Applications

Providing situational awareness for tactical operations, detecting hazardous materials, and relaying critical intelligence.

HAZMAT Applications

Offering a unique opportunity to keep first responders out of harm's way by letting them check readings and collect data from a distance.

Inspection Applications

Entering areas previously considered inaccessible for a wide range of industrial and infrastructure inspections.

Case Study: GE Dust Extraction System

The GE risk mitigation team was looking to replace the manual inspection process of having two employees on a scissor lift to examine Dust Extraction System ducts...

White Paper: Powering Up the Power Sector

Downtime is costly and examining assets can be challenging. Multi-purpose inspection robots are helping the Power sector reduce downtime and keep employees safe.
