Talisman’s flying robot component, the micro air vehicle (MAV), is being used as part of a suite of vehicles by the Royal Engineers at the forefront of counter-IED operations in Afghanistan.

The £180m unit is being used to support combat logistic patrols, to deliver supplies to bases and on the front line and to clear routes of IEDs and mines.

The robot consists of a Mastiff 2 protected patrol vehicle, a Buffalo mine protected vehicle with a rummaging arm, a JCB high mobility engineer excavator, a micro air vehicle and a Talon tracked remote-controlled robot.

The robot has been designed to provide an increased level of assurance along routes.

The MAV uses two cameras to feed information back to a laptop enabling the commander to make better decisions in the battlefield.
