6 Wheel Independent Hub Drive ROV Capable of lifting up to 100KG Multiple terrain access due to strong motors and independent powered axles, which aid climbing stairs to an angle of 35 degrees. Mission time exceeding two hours. With easy to exchange internal batteries which can extend mission time indefinitely. Used extensively at the Didcot Power Station Collapse. This was one of the first vehicles to carry out search and reconnaissance missions under the standing structure after the collapse. Its tasks including making safe welding cylinders, and removing welding apparatus to ensure that there would be no further explosions during the demolition process. In the latter stages these ROV's were used to lay heavy demolition charges, and precisely position cutting charges that would ensure the correct and safe collapse of the structure. Easily integrates into other equipment such as CBRN and X-ray using a Can-Bus system
An early version of Archer was used during the Search and Recon stage of the Didcot collapse (it was the first vehicle on the site proving the concept of the ability to gain access to a dangerous and radio susceptible area) . These small robots got right up to the collapse area taking Hi Res photos of the damage whilst looking for any casualties. Utilising ceramic cutters they bled down welding bottles that had been left full, to help prevent further explosions during the demolition process. In the latter stages the ROV's were used to lay explosive charges and wire them ready for initiation. A rugged ROV that has the capability to be integrated into CBRN and X-ray equipment.
The pioneering sandless sandbags, which have undergone extensive trials with the British armed forces, can save lives by mitigating explosions and fragmentation. They are transformed from being as light as a pillowcase to more effective than sandbags in minutes. Easy and space-saving to store in warehouses or on vehicles, BlastSax weigh just 700 grammes before being activated by simply adding water and then they become taut, weighing 20kg (44lbs) in around 3 minutes. BlastSax have been shown to be more effective than sandbags at capturing fragments One person can carry 40 BlastSax at one time in dry state – equal to 800kgs sandbag weight - and they can be used with aqueous decontaminants to neutralise CBRN threats. They are ideal for conventional demolition and personnel protection of possible explosive devices
