Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has signed a collaboration agreement with DOK-ING for manufacturing, marketing and sales of a robotic system to be used in high risk areas, IAI announced on 26 July.
The system developed under the collaboration will be used in high risk areas including ones contaminated by chemical, biological and radioactive agents.
Under the agreement, DOK-ING will provide the platform developed especially to sustain the extreme working environment including strong navigability and transportability in complex terrains.
IAI will provide advanced robotic capabilities, algorithms for autonomous movement, broadband communication systems and C2 systems. Special sensors for detecting and classifying contaminants will also be fitted in the system including for radioactive radiation.
Joseph Weiss, CEO, IAI, said: ‘IAI entered the agreement with DOK-ING as part of our strategy to maintain our domestic and global leadership in autonomous systems. Combined with DOK-ING’s engineering and technological capabilities, we will create a technologically and operationally advanced solution that will provide the high quality response required for hazardous environments without risking human lives.’
