New telemax 4x4 Explosive Ordnance Robot Introduced At DSEI
- The telemax 4x4 is a lighter, faster and more cost effective solution
A team from Cobham has introduced a new telemax 4x4 remotely operated vehicle to the unmanned systems industry during the 2015 DSEi conference in London (Stand S6-150). The telemax 4x4, an optimised derivative of Cobham Unmanned Systems suite of telemax robots, offers a lighter, faster and more cost effective solution to the customer. The 4x4 design incorporates a new 4 wheel drive system (top speed of 11.5 Km/h) and WLAN-based data and video transmission technology to achieve improved effectiveness, connectivity and functionality.
Incorporating over 2 decades worth of Cobham Unmanned Systems experience in the development and production of explosive ordnance robots, the 4x4 offers the same diverse range of tools, accessories and sensor options as all members of the telemax family, including critical capabilities such as Tool Centre Point (TCP) control and automatic tool change. The utilisation of the mission proven manipulator arm and other telemax specifications allows for the option to upgrade the 4x4 to the telemax PRO or CBRN at a later date.
