People’s Liberation Army to demonstrate the new EOD robot cross ditch Obstacle Rulvpingdi
The Rulvpingdi new EOD robot up and down stairs.
dangerous EOD operations now have added a “pioneer weapon”. In mid-April, the assembly of a Corps of Engineers Institute lasted for eight years led the development of our military EOD robot officially unveiled at the test site. At present, the robot has been declared three national invention patent, and the removal of the inventor of the International Federation of Innovation Award and the National Invention Exhibition Gold Award.
“400 meters away unexploded ordnance, to be handled immediately!” Testing ground to see at the Institute, along with the order, the operator remote control EOD robots toward the EOD area. Involved in the grass, climbing stairs, the more obstacles … the smoke, the EOD robot to walk all the way Rulvpingdi will soon be unexploded ordnance posture, the surrounding medium and screen real-time transfer back to the rear of the console. Technical staff to determine the EOD program, the robot carrying detonated sub-munitions to slowly close to the target. “Boom!” When the robot safely evacuated, the operator press the wireless remote control button, and unexploded ordnance will be erased.
According to project leader, researcher of the Institute Zi-Li Liu EOD operations unit of the EOD robot detonated the body, wireless remote control detonating device with the observed off the bomb area and unexploded ordnance exclude the two functions, mainly used in mine blasting live-fire exercises, counter-terrorism and anti-riot and other occasions EOD operations, light and flexible, good handling, and applicable to wide range of features. Robot vertical maximum Obstacle 30 cm, the maximum horizontal Obstacle to 60 cm, the wading maximum depth of 25 cm; overturning performance, able to tilt around the normal work in the case of 20 degrees; maximum road speed of 60 per minute meters, the robot has to grab a weight of 5 kg and flexible placement of the ability of small detonating device.
reporter has learned that this type of EOD robots in a number of key technologies and a breakthrough: the end of the robot through the control handle direct manipulation, to crawl, move, placed detonated body operating, greatly increasing operating precision and degree of automation; Tracked compound running gear, and can maneuver in the complex terrain of the sand, the Gobi Desert, Coastal, low bushes, etc., with up and down stairs, across the barriers and other functions; 4 surveillance cameras can be motorized routes, operating environment, the job object multi-angle monitor; with feedback function, the remote job to do under control, further improve the reliability and safety of the EOD.
the last test event of a dud and semi-Bomb, the only artificial detonation to eliminate dangerous and pose a great threat to the officers and men to life safety by the robot to replace the manual operation, greatly reducing the test risk. “Yangjian Hao, director of the Institute, told reporters,” This type of EOD robot can be changed according to the terrain tracked shape, both in city street, roadway, and action on the stairs, walking on the prairie, desert, the Gobi, you can play an active role in carry out diversified military tasks. “
EOD robot is a set of machinery, materials, computers, sensors, control technology discipline in one of the high-tech products. Its main purpose: instead of EOD personnel to conduct site surveys, real-time transmission of live images; instead of EOD personnel handling the transfer of suspected explosives and other hazardous products; instead of EOD personnel destroyed the explosives. Currently, the world’s multi-country dotted with a large number of unexploded ammunition, some countries even remnants of a war, unexploded mines and bombs in World War II. Therefore, the EOD robot application prospects are very bright. (Zhang Xiaoqi Shi-Zhong Wang)
