Critical Solutions International, Humanistic Robotics Receive Mine Roller Supply Contract

The contract will be managed through U.S. Army Tank and Automotive Command (TACOM) Non-Standard Equipment Office. These systems will bolster the ANAs mine and IED clearance capability and enhance freedom of maneuver across the battlefield.

Critical Solutions International (CSI), in partnership with Humanistic Robotics Inc. (HRI), announced today the award of a contract to supply the Afghan National Army (ANA) with 464 mine rollers and associated operation and maintenance training. The contract will be managed through U.S. Army Tank and Automotive Command (TACOM) Non-Standard Equipment Office. These systems will bolster the ANAs mine and IED clearance capability and enhance freedom of maneuver across the battlefield.


CSI partnered with HRI in 2014 in order to complement its existing suite of counter IED technologies, and offer U.S. and international customers a total route clearance package. The HRI roller is part of a suite of counter IED technologies provided by CSI. This includes the purpose-built Husky route clearance vehicle, which is the #1 route clearance vehicle in the world.

"HRI has been about building technology to make a safer world from day one," said Samuel Reeves, HRIs co-founder and CEO. "The HRI- CSI partnership reflects the growing need for a multi-faceted, multi-technology approach for defeating landmines and IEDs. It allows us to combine our individual company capabilities to increase survivability and save lives. Partnering with CSI, which for many years has been at the center of efforts to defeat the threat from IEDs with its Husky vehicle, is a perfect match for HRI."
