PROGRAM OBJECTIVES


Develop a modular, light weight system for first
responders


to be complimentary with current robots


Single chassis with interchangeable top plates
supporting various missions


Modify EOD BomBot military IED/UXO counter
-
charge
delivery system


Plug and play flexibility


Primary mission recon/surveillance


Training and User feedback


UHF digital radio on two units

Technologies, Inc,

Basic Expendable System
-

EOD


EOD BomBot


Government Design Developed by AFRL Robotics Group


Kit configuration 6 vehicles, 2 OCUs with spares kit


Detect and neutralize IED/UXOs
-

expendable with no
logistics trail


Initial order for 309 kits with 483 spare vehicles


Additional USMC EOD for 29 kits


Government Program of Record


Issues sloppy suspension, poor video performance, 30
minute mission duration, OCU on tray easy to lose parts


Good idea no program flexibility for changes


Basic Expendable System

BomBot EOD

BomBot EOD Controller

Special Operations


SOFBot (UXO RCV

XM2)


Robotics R&D group modification for SOF customer
funded by EOD/LIC for 14 kits


Kit configuration 6 vehicles with 2 OCUs


Primary use to detect and detonate IED/UXOs, again
expendable with no logistics trail


Design Differences


military batteries


run time of over 2 hours


New video transmitter/receiver


range of 1200 feet LOS


drive train modifications; suspension locked in place,
differentials, metal drive shafts and new transmission


Requirement generated by USASOC

SOF UXO RCV

BomBot XM2 Vehicle

BomBot XM2 Controller

XBot for NIJ Program


12 prototypes with improvements


OCU in pelican case


New clutch assembly, metal drive shafts and chassis, 24
volt Maxxon motor, better steering, various
configurations


EOD, Monitor, Enforcer and Search and
Rescue


Two with WEUF radio systems and navigation module


New software allows hot swap of top plates
