This man-portable system can be operated remotely using the standard radio control, or with an optional fiber optic control system. Modular design allows the operator to quickly configure this system for current needs. A wide range of accessories greatly increase this system's utility. The system is powered by quick change battery packs: one in the vehicle and one in the control console. Two extra vehicle battery packs are supplied with each system. One extra console battery pack is standard. The battery packs provide up to 4 hours of operation and are recharged using the supplied battery charger. Platform The platform without the manipulator is only 4 1/2" high using the small wheels. It can easily inspect under vehicles and in other confined areas. Also available are a set of 6 1/2" large wheels. This platform can operate in a wide variety of terrain, including mud, sand, grass, and gravel. It can easily climb curbs and some stairs. A black and white camera with pan and tilt capability is located on the front of the platform. A black and white back-up camera is also standard on the platform. Optional camera configurations are also available. Manipulator The manipulator assembly can be quickly attached and detached from the platform without the use of tools. The arm reaches from 6 inches to over 5 feet. It includes 180 degree wrist pitch, 360 degree wrist rotation, arm elevation from below horizontal to beyond vertical, and 9 inch gripper opening with 4 different gripper sets and adjustable gripper force limit.
