Micro robot designer ReconRobotics boosts automated guidance expertise with acquisition of Xollai LLC

EDINA, Minn., 20 April 2012. Executives of ReconRobotics Inc. in Edina, Minn., which specializes in micro robots like the Recon Scout Throwbot for military and law-enforcement applications, are enhancing their company's expertise in automated guidance system technology with their acquisition of Xollai LLC in St. Paul, Minn. Xollai made its name by creating an advanced automated guidance technology for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

“This strategic acquisition will give us access to technologies that solve unmet needs in our current markets, as well as entirely new solutions in advanced manufacturing, image processing, and unmanned aerial systems," says Alan Bignall, president and chief executive officer of ReconRobotics.

ReconRobotics executives say they will integrate Xollai into its product engineering and design operations by the end of this month, and maintain Xollai’s headquarters.

Xollai is a systems engineering firm with intellectual property in automated guidance technology, optics-based autonomous control systems, and image processing and recognition. Xollai won the 2011 Architect of Defense award from the Defense Alliance of Minnesota, which represents defense companies in the Midwest.

ReconRobotics specializes in tactical, micro-robot systems. The company’s Recon Scout Throwbot can provide immediate situational awareness and standoff distance to warfighters and law enforcement, and help protect them from hidden threats.
