1. History

ReconRobotics, Inc. was founded in 2006 to commercialize robotics technology developed at the University of Minnesota Distributed Robotics Laboratory under funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA. The company introduced the worlds first tactical micro-robot – the Recon Scout® – in 2007. Since then, the company has designed and engineered several new-generation robot systems and accessories to meet the evolving needs of law enforcement agencies and the military. On May 3, 2011, ReconRobotics signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement CRADA with Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific SSC Pacific to develop a robot with magnetic wheels to climb over the hull of a ship. In April 2012, ReconRobotics acquired Xollai LLC, a company specializing in automated guidance, optics, and recognition technology. In June 2012, Los Alamos National Laboratory LANL and ReconRobotics signed a cooperative research and development agreement to" identify, evaluate, and develop a range of mutually beneficial technologies.” In 2013, ReconRobotics was recognized as one of the Worlds Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company magazine. The company was ranked 44th along with several other robotics companies.
