General Info


Radio controlled / autonomous vehicle used for sampling of materials of suspected CBRN contamination


Robotic vehicle, remotely controlled, capable of taking and if possible analyzing by anthropomorphic arm and sensors, contaminated or suspected CBRN contamination samples such as:

  • Aerosols and various materials dispersed in the air
  • Liquids
  • Soils and solids in general

System composition

  • Vehicle made of aluminum alloy equipped with four independent driving wheels.
  • Anthropomorphic arm in aluminum alloy with 6 degrees of freedom
  • Forceps for handling specimens
  • Aluminum console for remote control
  • Radiolink for remote control of the system to allow:
    • Driving the vehicle
    • Receiving videos of the patrolled area
    • The management of the on-board sensors in real time
    • The management of the anthropomorphic arm


In the event of a signal interruption between the vehicle and the remote operator, the system is able to return completely autonomously to the starting position:
