The Orion is an unmanned collaborative robotic system that mimics swarming behaviours commonly encountered in schools of fish and flocks of birds. Comprising two types of autonomous micro-robotic units — a wall-climbing variant and a floor-mapping one — Orion can achieve multi-agent intelligent surveillance and reconnaissance in urban settings. It increases public safety and strengthens MINDEF’s national security effort.
