ICOR Technology CALIBER® MK3
Medium EOD robot
The MK3 CALIBER® EOD robot satisfies a growing need for a medium-sized platform that offers the towing and dragging capability of a larger robot, and the speed, agility and dexterity of smaller, lightweight platforms.
Equipped with a heavy duty claw and rotating Twin-Disrupter Turret, the MK3 CALIBER® offers mission critical dependent features at a low cost. Based on recommendations from bomb technicians, the robot is completely modular which allows for easy platform upgrades, field repair, and part replacement and reduces annual maintenance costs.
The unique 355° rotating, 180° tilting Twin-Disrupter Turret provides unparalleled aiming capability of 2 recoilless disrupters. Integrated Cross hairs on the CCU screen with 4 green lasers and 2 color cameras are used for sighting weapons. 4 independent firing circuits are used for initiating disrupters, bottle charges or x-ray systems.
A 3-speed transmission accelerates the robot up to 5 mph (8 km/h) while providing the low end torque to climb steep stairs and drag bodies. The 6×6 all wheel chain drive, fitted with the rubber tracks can maneuver over all types of rugged terrain including snow and sand.
The weather resistant CCU provides precise, simultaneous operation using the variable speed drive joystick and dedicated Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) Camera joystick. An intuitive 3D layout of the robot on the deck of the CCU includes backlit buttons and user feedback ensuring ease of use during operations. The low reflection 15” (38.1 cm) LCD color screen shows clear images in both bright and low light conditions from any of the 6 color cameras. An integrated 3-stage firing sequence, including firing key, arm button, and fire button, is required to activate any of the 4x24V independent firing circuits, ensuring safe operation of disrupters, MWB, and drop charges. Video jacks allow for camera output to an auxiliary monitor. Audio jacks allow for output to powered speakers or input of a MP3 player. Optional features include Picture-in-Picture (PIP) (COFDM only) and Digital Video Recorder for recording MPEG video, JPEG images, and MP3 audio.
24V DC quick-change rechargeable batteries extend your mission time to 3 – 5 hours (mission dependent). The Feedback screen on the CCU indicates the battery status of the robot and CCU. It literally takes seconds to swap batteries or you can charge the battery without removing it from the chassis.
Law enforcement agencies throughout the USA, Canada, Europe, Middle East and Asia currently deploy the MK3 CALIBER® EOD Robot.
