This video introduces a small, new reconnaissance robot built with the Durable Reconnaissance and Observation Platform, D.R.O.P. DROP is manufactured using a combination of selective laser sintering (SLS) and shape deposition manufacturing (SDM) techniques. The enabling feature of DROP is the use of microspines in a rotary configuration, increasing climbing and walking speed over previous microspine-based robots by more than 5x.
