Roboteam Set to Launch Next Generation of Military Ground Robot at AUSA 2017

Advanced UGV to Detect, Identify and Dispose of Hazards for the Warfighter

GAITHERSBURG, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Roboteam, Inc., the leading global provider of tactical ground robotic systems and controllers for defense, law enforcement and public safety missions, will unveil its revolutionary Transportable Interoperable Ground Robot (TIGR) at 11:30 a.m. ET today, Monday, October 9, 2017 during AUSA 2017 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

"The TIGR's interoperability makes it the most effective counter-IED technology on the battlefield," said Shahar Abuhazira, CEO of Roboteam, Inc. "Our family of tactical robots provide users with complete situational awareness to help soldiers complete missions safely and successfully. With the creation of the TIGR, Roboteam has excelled from a technological standpoint and with respect to our ability to match our niche capabilities to the U.S. Militarys critical demands. TIGR is just one more example of Roboteams commitment to quality, reliability and operability."

The TIGR is the most advanced, groundbreaking robotic platform ever made available to the modern warfighter. As a two-man carried UGV with a modular design allowing for add-ons, sensors and future technology integration, TIGR provides innumerable capabilities other mid-sized robotic platforms are unable to achieve in the theater of war. It is a highly mobile, all-weather system capable of operating in any terrain. TIGR incorporates best-in-class day and night vision and six HD video cameras. A tactical five-degree-of-freedom manipulator provides operators with high dexterity for complex EOD missions, CBRN survey operations, hazardous material incident response, and subterranean and culvert inspection. TIGR provides a holistic robotic approach to defeat virtually any threat, in any environment.

Roboteam will also be unveiling next generation versions of its Individual Robotic Intelligence System (IRIS), and Probot, as well as the RSTR - the first UGV with flight capabilities - during AUSA 2017.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
