Power Hawk Integration for Robotic Platforms
The threat of vehicle-borne IEDs has created new challenges for bomb squads and military EOD units around the world. This has led to innovative countermeasures to disrupt and render these devices safe. Currently there are several robotic platforms available to U.S. military and civilian technicians; however, they lack the ability or the integrated tools to non-explosively gain access to suspect items, vehicles, or containers. This program launched the integration of the COTS Power Hawk Rescue System as a remotely operated access tool onto the ANDROS F6A robotic platform to achieve these capabilities and further increase the margin of safety for the bomb technicians. Both the Power Hawk Rescue System and the integration kit are available through Remotec. Requests for additional information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
