US PFPA Equips Hazardous Devices Branch with Telerob Telemax EVO HYBRID UGV System

  • United States Pentagon Force Protection Agency receives Telerob, an AeroVironment Company, telemax EVO HYBRID unmanned ground vehicle system order, supported by training, spares and accessories packages
  • Telerob's advanced unmanned ground vehicle solutions safely and effectively perform a variety of dangerous missions, including explosive ordnance disposal, hazardous materials handling and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threat assessment

AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV), a global leader in intelligent, multi-domain robotic systems, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Telerob, successfully delivered the United States Pentagon Force Protection Agency’s (PFPA) telemax™ EVO HYBRID unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) order in July 2021. Designed to be operated by PFPA explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) and hazardous materials handling (HAZMAT) technicians, the UGV was purchased for deployment by its Hazardous Devices Branch.

"With its strong 6-axis precision manipulator, Tool Center Point Control and automatic tool exchange, the telemax EVO HYBRID enables EOD and HAZMAT units to perform dangerous missions from a safe distance and with precision control, even in the most confined spaces," said Brian Young, AeroVironment vice president and product line general manager for unmanned ground vehicles.

The telemax EVO HYBRID is a versatile UGV with an expansive payload bay and automatic tool exchange that allow operators to take multiple tools, disruptors, or other sensors downrange, eliminating round-trip load-outs. The telemax EVO HYBRID features a 4-track drive system with auto-leveling to easily handle multiple gradients, gaps and terrains, and its onboard IP Mesh radio delivers secure communications in complex urban environments.
