The Surrogate robot ("Surge") was built at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Researchers are developing it in order to extend humanity's reach into hazardous environments to perform tasks such as using environmental test equipment, closing valves, or gaining access to closed compartments. Surrogate is supported by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency in Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
