Boulder, CO, May 5, 2010 – The robotics engineering team at Stratom Inc. in Boulder has developed a series of tools that allows mid-size unmanned ground vehicles to plow, dig, lift and transport objects.
The suite of instruments, dubbed the Warrior Tool and Payload Accessory Kit, includes a blade for plowing, a spade and sweep for digging and forks for lifting and transporting skids and other objects.
The kit is being marketed to users of robotic systems within the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security. The tools will be used primarily in efforts to locate and neutralize improvised explosive devices, breaching and clearing operations, and route clearance for U.S. armed forces and first responders.
