iRobot Corporation's PackBot EOD is a rugged, lightweight robot designed to conduct Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), HAZMAT handling, search-and-surveillance, hostage rescue and other vital law enforcement tasks for bomb squads, SWAT teams, military units and other authorities seeking to meet the security challenges of the 21st century.

PackBot EXPLOSIVE ORDNANCE DISPOSAL (EOD) ROBOT

PackBot EOD can handle a full range of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and conventional ordnance disposal challenges. Its lightweight, ruggedized OmniReach manipulator system can reach as far as two meters in any direction to safely disrupt difficult-to-access improvised explosive devices, military ordnance, land mines and other incendiary devices.

This versatile robot quickly adapts to different IEDs, conventional ordnance and SWAT missions. With its compact profile and patented mobility platform, PackBot EOD operates with confidence on the toughest terrain from the stairs, curbs and rubble of urban terrain to the rocks, sands and mud of the battlefield.

PackBot EOD is built on the battle-proven PackBot chassis deployed by US ground troops in Afghanistan (2002) and Iraq (2003) to help clear caves and bunkers, search buildings and cross live anti-personnel mine fields.

PackBot EOD - RAPIDLY DEPLOYED, MOBILE BOMB DISPOSAL ROBOT

Weighing less than 24 kilograms fully loaded, PackBot EOD can be hand carried and deployed by a single operator. In its stowed position, the robot can be quickly loaded into the trunk of a squad car and transported to the site. No expensive equipment or specialized vans are necessary. Once on the scene, PackBot EOD can be deployed in under two minutes. Airlifts pose no problem PackBot EOD fits easily in airplanes and helicopters.

PackBot EOD is equipped with tracked QuickFlip dual rotating flippers that allow the robot to easily climb up stairs, maneuver over rocks and rubble and navigate narrow, twisting passages. The robot's flexible ToughTrac polymer tracks can eject debris and maneuver over any surface from tiled floor to snow and mud with "human-like" dexterity, quickly positioning its payloads for optimum mission success. This all-weather all-terrain robot goes virtually anywhere.

PackBot EOD - MULTI-ROLE ROBOT FOR HAZMAT HANDLING, SEARCH AND RESCUE, RECONNAISSANCE, SURVEILLANCE AND HOSTAGE RESCUE

Once PackBot EOD has reached the target area, a wide range of payloads can handle missions ranging from ordnance disposal weapons delivery to reconnaissance and search-and-rescue. The OmniReach manipulator arm can access targets other robots cannot. With its powerful, low-profile gripper, the robot can perform a wide array of manipulation tasks.

PackBot EOD offers multi-mission flexibility in a single, proven chassis delivering cost efficiency and long-term investment protection. The chassis offers eight separate payload bays, each with interchangeable payload modules such as video / audio, chemical / bio-sensors, mine detectors, ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and extra power. Bomb squads and SWAT teams can quickly configure payloads, employ sensors and adjust the level of human control required to meet the needs of each specific mission.

PackBot EOD is simple to learn and use. The ruggedized operator control unit has an ergonomic design with intuitive controls for optimum mission success. The robot's intelligent power management constantly monitors battery health to ensure long mission life.
