AVATAR® EOD Robot

NTOA - National Tactical Officers Association

A new tool for EOD and Bomb Teams

RoboteX is proud to announce the AVATAR® EOD Robot – featuring compatibility with the CarbonFire 10 PAN Disrupter!

Built on the same foundation as the widely used, industry-standard AVATAR® Tactical Robot, the AVATAR® EOD Robot features an extendable, five-axis robotic manipulator arm and compatibility with a remote Percussion-Actuated Nonelectric (PAN) disrupter – giving EOD teams a host of new tactical and bomb disposal capabilities.

Carbon Fire Attachment for the Avatar Robot

Specifically, the robot integrates with the CarbonFire 10 PAN Disrupter, a market-leading laser sight and disrupter designed by the Concept Development Corporation. The CarbonFire 10 mounts easily onto an AVATAR® Manipulator Arm, allowing the user to aim and fire the disrupter from a safe distance. In addition, the AVATAR® EOD Robot features all of the same tactical capabilities and benefits as the AVATAR® Tactical Robot, including high-quality video, push-to-talk audio, stair climbing ability, dual IR and LED lights, and a rugged drop-resistant chassis.

The AVATAR® EOD Robot fills both general support and direct support capabilities. It can contribute to the following scenarios:

  • Maritime ship boarding and small craft responses now have a small, fully functional Counter IED platform that expands on-site technician’s toolbox with remote tools.
  • Dismount Operations can benefit from a robot that weighs under 45 pounds and is back-packable and disrupter capable. The robot’s all terrain durability and small size (easily small enough to fit in any helicopter or ATV) allow for maximum flexibility.
  • Special Event/Large Venue responses also benefit from the robot’s back-packable, portable nature, as it can fit in a Polaris or golf cart and can be carried with mini QRF teams. The robot adds remote capability without a large response truck.

Benefits

  • CarbonFire 10 PAN disrupter mounts easily onto AVATAR® Manipulator Arm using only a few bolts
  • Allows EOD and bomb tech teams to safely engage suspicious packages from a distance using a remote controlled robot system
  • Easily climbs stairs with optional high angle stabilizer bars
  • Enables enhanced visibility of dangerous objects with robot’s built-in cameras
  • Remote/stand-off activation of the CarbonFire 10 unit possible with a variety of initiator systems.
