The robot dog has a remote-controlled rifle attached to its back as a human operator can control it via an Android tablet. The robot has been named the SPUR, which stands for Special Purpose Unmanned Rifle.

It features a 6.5mm Creedmoor rifle, from military defense company SWORD International, on top of a Quadrupedal Unmanned Ground Vehicle (QUGV) developed by Ghost Robotics.

The robot has day and night vision and the ability to shoot bullets out to 1,200 meters.
