ECA ROBOTICS Mobile Security and CBRN Robots
ECA ROBOTICS designs and manufactures unmanned systems for inspection and intervention tasks covering the needs of different markets such as the defence, security, nuclear and chemical industries. ECA ROBOTICS provides a turnkey service of product design, development, production and worldwide logistic support.
Based on a new open architecture, ECA ROBOTICS UGVs have already been selected by many end users in charge of complex operations where humans are frequently exposed. ECA ROBOTICS product line includes: one small and easy deployable mini-robots for all types of inspection missions, one small modular robot covering a range of missions, from reconnaissance to EOD / IED, detection and neutralization, and one heavy robot for dangerous duty operations.
Mini-UGV for inspection in confined areas
The Cobra MK2 UGV was specially designed for soldiers and security forces. It hosts, packed in its 5kg, all the latest technology for responding to terrorist threats (menace). Its design is based on a modular architecture turning it into a unique system, easily customizable and reconfigurable depending on the mission reaching from reconnaissance to neutralization of IEDs, insuring chemical and radiological analysis on the way. The UGV, weighing only 5 kg and operated with a simple tablet PC is very easy to manage on site in a potentially dangerous situation.
Some tens of systems have been ordered since COBRA MK2 announcement in November 2011.
Modular CBRN Robot
This robot is dedicated for counter-CBRN . CAMELEONs intrinsic modularity allows him to carry simultaneously or separately different dedicated mission modules for detection, measurement, on site analysis or to mark contaminated areas. It carries a universal sensor support allowing the immediate integration of all types of radiological sensors (gamma, neutronic, radiometer) and chemical (Explosimeter, PID, TIC, CWA, multigas sensing).
Operated by the French Fire Army on a daily bases or in the context of big events such as the G20 in Cannes,the Cameleon CBRN has established itself as a must for the protection of first responders in hazardous situations.
Lightweight modular EOD/IEDD UGV
Last born of the ECA ROBOTICS EOD/IEDD product range, CAMELEON EOD covers all functionalities from the detection to the neutralization of conventional and improvised explosives. Weighing only 27 kg, with the possibility to add on another 25 kg in payloads, CAMELEON is very easily deployable by a single operator.
Portable Command Control Unit is particularly well suited for dismounted operations. The robots modular design allows integrating new sensors additionally to the 6-axis manipulator arm for efficiently responding to other threats such as NRBC.
CAMELEON EOD has proofed its operational efficiency and reliability since 2010.
Powerful EOD vehicle
The EOD / IEDD mobile robot TSR 202 is used wherever human intervention is risky, such as remote manipulation in difficult or dangerous environments, route clearance, suspicious package inspection and dangerous duty operations (explosive systems and booby traps) by specialized security services. With its specific new options (portable control panel, extended 500m range transmission, automatic umbilical stowing system, and PROPARM and RICHEMOND cannon fitting) the TSR202 can address all types of EOD / IEDD missions.
