EOD301 Robotic Manipulator
NATO Stock Number: 1385-99-905-0766
The Robotic Manipulator allows EOD operators to manipulate suspect devices and objects at a stand off distance of 3 metres. Tube sections are linked together, with a powered claw attachment at the operating end. The final section has a frangible joint, which fails in the event of an unplanned detonation. This ensures the load transferred to the operator is reduced. A fragment shield, forward of the operator offers extended protection in the event of an unplanned detonation. A counterweight tube assembly is behind the operator, which balances the manipulator.
