Contineo Robotics also announces that Jeff Wilson, former field representative for Senator James Inhofe, will serve as its Executive Director. Wilson, a native of Savanna, OK and graduate of the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK, served as a key staff member to Senator James Inhofe, most recently as Oklahoma City and Southwest Oklahoma Field Representative.

“Over 25,000 military servicemen have been injured in Iraq and Afghanistan as a result of IEDS,” commented Contineo’s Jeff Wilson. “By improving the level of technology deployed in mobile ground robotics, military personnel can be kept out of harms way, greatly reducing the number of debilitating bomb blast injuries.”

The Company is focused on the development of conformal manipulators and advanced control systems that seek to extend the range of human dexterity. Contineo intends to manufacture these systems in Oklahoma City.

Contineo Robotics is already collaborating with large defense integrators, including Northrop Grumman and QinetiQ North America to develop and integrate advanced robotics solutions for homeland security and military applications.

Contineo Robotics, LLC is an advanced technology company focused on developing and commercializing novel robotics hardware and control systems that improve the capability and function of mobile ground robotics platforms. For more information, go to www.contineo-robotics.com.
