RAD Introduces RADDOG 2LE on “Stars on Mars”

On the new Fox reality show “Stars on Mars” Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc.’s (RAD) RADDOG 2LE robotic dog is helping celebrity contestants complete challenges and missions.

DETROIT—Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., a global manufacturer of AI-driven security and productivity solutions, along with its wholly owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), have announced the complete details of the RADDOG 2LE, which will be announced the day after the robot premiered on the all-new TV series “Stars on Mars,” which aired on Fox television on June 5.

RAD’s RADDOG 2LE will be formally introduced on Tuesday, June 6, with demonstrations available for law enforcement agencies. The RADDOG quadruped robots used in the show are similar to RADDOG 2LE units, which are specially designed for law enforcement. The “Stars on Mars” RADDOGs perform the duties of the mission’s security robots, as well as being companions to the crew members.

“Once we saw RADDOG, we wanted it as member of the crew,” says Charles Wachter, Stars on Mars executive producer and showrunner.

“Lost in Space had their robot, Star Wars had their R2D2, and similarly, RADDOG was a big part of our cast. It performed both a functional role in the series—as sentry security for the crew, with remote viewing, and also as a companion. It has a ton of personality, but even more capabilities.”

RADDOG 2LE Offers TV Show a Real-Life Robot

Stars on Mars” is a new unscripted series that just premiered on FOX, where 12 fearless celebrities will colonize, compete and conquer “Mars” until there is one victorious space invader, who will claim the title of “the brightest star in the galaxy.” The stars and RADDOG 2LE will receive interstellar assignments from “Star Trek” icon William Shatner, who serves as mission control.

“We are so excited to see the missions and antics of RADDOG on Stars on Mars,” comments Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD.

“RADDOG is the first robotic dog to participate in this type of television programming. Millions of households will get an up-close glimpse of what RADDOG can do.”

Reinharz points out the company sent a total of five RADDOG 2LEs along with a Canadian-based robotics technician to support the production crew in Coober Pedy, Australia. Reports from the outback have been positive, with the RADDOG 2LE robots participating in a number of missions and challenges.

“We sincerely thank Eureka Productions and FOX for this incredible opportunity to help launch RADDOG,” notes Reinharz.

As previously indicated by RAD, no placement, publicity or other fees have been paid to the production company, studio, network, or cast for the robotic dogs’ “Stars on Mars” appearance. RAD emphasizes the production company reached out to Eclipse Worldwide, RAD’s marketing agency prior to the airing of the show to indicate interest in having RADDOG 2LE robotic dogs participate in the show.

RADDOG 2LE is scheduled to begin shipping in August. Complete specifics of the robotic security dog’s capabilities, features and other details including pricing and options will be made available on June 6 on the RAD website.
