The robot was developed by the Israeli company Innobots, that develops and manufactures remotely operated small robots for use by military forces, law enforcement, installation inspection, people detection, and threat neutralization. The company develops also other products in the fields of robotics, drones, vision systems etc.

Additional robots in this series include the innoMedio, a remote-controlled 4-wheel-drive micro attack robot vehicle with a range of 100m and payload of 1000g. Suitable for rough terrain action, it is equipped with a built-in wireless micro-camera that transmits a sharp color picture and clear sound to a hand-held unit.

This model is also versatile and is capable of launching explosives and special purpose ammunitions (with a time setting) and operating as a completely independent weapon.
