Paramount and Sarcos join forces to deploy robotic systems in the MEA region

Paramount Group and US-based Sarcos Robotics have come together to bring robotic systems for defense customers in the Middle East and Africa (MEA). The announcement was made at the International Defence Exhibition (IDEX) conference held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, from 21 February to 25 February.

Both companies have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore possible market opportunities. Sarcos’ award-winning robotic systems can be utilized to address the region’s unique requirements in the maritime and aerospace technology arenas. These modified systems will be supplied to defense, aerospace and commercial customers in the Middle East and Africa.

“Sarcos and Paramount share a vision to deliver revolutionary products that improve efficiency and reduce risk of injury in vigorous environments, bolstering workers’ strength and amplifying performance in often ergonomically stressful environments. We believe that the market opportunity to make an impact in the Middle East and Africa is significant,” said Paramount Group chairman Ivor Ichikowitz.

Sarcos and Paramount will be initially focussing on the Sarcos Guardian XO robotic exoskeleton. This robot has been in development for the past two decades. According to Paramount, Guardian XO will allow defense and industrial workers ‘to lift and manipulate heavy objects’ up to 200 pounds, including ammunition, vehicle tires, machinery, and plywood. The companies will focus on the Guardian XT teleoperated dexterous robot developed based on the upper-body portion of the Guardian XO.
