Reacher

Exceptional Arm Reach

The design of the Reacher’s arm with 7 degrees of freedom, a sliding turret and low profile arm enables the arm to be manipulated into many positions including over obstacle, below ground and under vehicle. The Reachers low profile wrist has embedded LED spotlights and an embedded gripper camera.

Rotating & Sliding Turret

The forward and reverse sliding motion of the ±220° rotating turret further increases the reach and manoeuvrability of the robotic arm. Stability while reaching is ensured by central bogie locking mechanism.

Carries Under-car Robot

The Reacher carries the Remote Disruptor Platform (RDP) within its chassis to an incident and can deploy it when observation or disruptor capabilities are needed in low clearance situations.  The Reacher can use the RDP to get a 3rd person perspective view on itself. The RDP can also be used to position X-Ray sources such as the XRS-200/300, leaving Reacher free to position the X-Ray panel.

Steep Climber

With its six independently driven wheels, advanced suspension system and inertial stabilization system the Reacher is a steady climber tackling inclines of up to 45° terrain dependent.

Steerable Back Wheels

The Reacher is the 1st ROV to have both skid steer and also Ackerman steering via the rear axle. This allows Reacher save battery power and tyre wear when making long trips to incidents. It also allows Reacher to get out of trouble if it sinks in very soft ground.

Powered Tool Bay Drawer

While out on a mission without an RDP the robotic arm can interchange its tools with those available in the powered cargo bay drawer at the front of the robot.  The powered tool bay drawer is customisable to store either primarily the RDP or secondarily tools and disruptor weapons
