Rough Country Robotics, LLC

We are a Connecticut based company, and we are operating in the startup mode.


This year we are emerging with our first products, and this page’s intent is to show you what we are doing.


The Owner, Charles Doughty, is a U.S. Navy Submarine Force veteran. He retired as a Lt. Commander. He has 22 years experience with developing embedded control system and simulation software for the Defense Indstry. His experience includes development under the Capability Maturity Model for Integration (CMMI) Systems Engineering processes. He has Mechanical Engineering BS, and Computer Science MS degrees, and robotic programming experience with industrial welding robots. He has machine shop fabrication and welding experience. He has 20 years of U.S.Navy management experience.


It is his vision – to make developing robots easier, and to engage more people, especially younger people, in becoming engineers, and becoming involved in robotics.   Robots can help people do essential things, good things that humans can’t do alone. But someone needs to build them, and that is where we are intending to make our contribution.


What sets us apart:

  • Small company that can be very responsive and flexible
  • Owner is an Engineer, with extensive Systems Engineering experience
  • Our products are robots for use in the wild. By which we mean robots that can operate outside, and are larger, able to traverse severe terain.
