No boots on the ground

Advanced robotic solutions to increase the safety of our troops



We All Want Our Troops To Return Home Safely

Warfare is inevitable. Mass casualties should not be. Our defense technology is changing constantly, but until now, there has never been a solution that truly prevents casualties. The TIKAD drone will allow us to investigate potentially dangerous situations before sending our sons and daughters into harm’s way. This technology also allows us to shoot remotely and potentially disarm a situation without ever deploying a ground presence.

Introducing The TIKAD

Duke Robotics brings a fully robotic weaponry system to an airborne platform. TIKAD, which is a proprietary development of Duke, uses the delivery of a unique suppression firing and stabilization solution. The TIKAD allows us to utilize completely new capabilities against terrorist groups and reduce the number of deployed ground troops, and therefore, the number of casualties. Instead of sending our troops to investigate a potentially dangerous location, the TIKAD can be deployed while the troops control it remotely.

The new face of military technology.

The TIKAD can be deployed above water and ends with a minimum risk situation. Until now, troops had to be there to investigate.

The TIKAD is designed with a lightweight, real-time 6 DOF (degrees of freedom) Robotic gimbal. It has the ability to carry and stabilize up to 3x the weight of the gimbal.

The TIKAD  is remotely operated, user-friendly and can easily be carried in the field.

Winner of the Security Innovation Award


As terrorists become more sophisticated, so too must the tools for defeating them.  Startups play a critical role in developing the breakthroughs required.  The award showcases startups and entrepreneurs from any technology domain that are capitalizing on major opportunities emerging in the military technology markets.



In June 2016, our Robotic System was awarded the top prize at the Combating Terrorism Technology Conference sponsored by the United States Defense Department’s Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO), Israel’s Ministry of Defense, Directorate of Defense Research and Development (DDR&D / MAFAAT), and the MIT Enterprise Forum of Israel.
