Law Enforcement

The long arm of the law reaches out further with Argo 8x8 mobility. Officers can search remote locations easily and safely in an Argo.

On patrol or in pursuit, Argo's overcome all obstacles, from woodlands and broken terrain to marshes and water courses, to cover more ground without delay. For long range operations, Argo’s optional 4-point helicopter lift kit provides the ultimate in rapid deployment.

Argo has proven its versatility in service with military, search & rescue and robotic surveillance duty. Argo recently partnered in the development of a remote-operated platform for Canadian airport security to handle suspicious packages in baggage facilities safely.

With a variety of add-on tools and equipment, the Argo can expand the mobile capabilities of any unit such as surveillance and listening posts, mobile power, heavy lifting, spraying or towing and recovery.

Disaster Response

When disaster strikes, every emergency site becomes an extreme site. Usual terrain obstacles like hills and streams are severely compounded by strewn debris, washouts and compromised structures.

Argo's combine industry-leading stability with ground pressure that’s light as your footstep to negotiate the most treacherous conditions. Deliver recovery crews and their equipment safely, with Argo dependability to keep them mobile and well supplied. Argo’s fully sealed body and integral skid plate prevents crippling damage to the vehicle so it can stay on the job and complete every mission.

When storm waters surge in and river beds overflow, Argo's move seamlessly from land to water without stopping for any vehicle preparation. Where submerged areas make surface conditions uncertain, Argo keeps going – “come hell or high water!”

Defense

Deployable, dependable, adaptable -- ARGO XTVs, a versatile light vehicle platform, are the affordable solution for a host of military requirements.

Already in service with forces worldwide, ARGO vehicles take on missions ranging from logistics support to reconnaissance to command posts. Built to traverse any terrain with up to 1500 lbs / 680 kg of cargo, Argo's also become rapidly air-mobile with an optional 4-point lift hitch, allowing sling loading by a helicopter.

Strong-yet-lightweight ARGO XTVs are also used as the chassis for Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) roles, providing a low-profile 6x6 or 8x8 platform for remote-operated security, patrol and material handling tasks. The Canadian Space Agency chose Argo as the mobility system for its development of a new lunar rover. Equally at home in desert sand or arctic snow, from mountain peaks to forest bogs, Argo is truly “mission ready” anywhere on earth – and beyond!
