EOD Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV’s)/ Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV’s)

Our Remotely Operated vehicle(ROV’s)/ Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV’s) fleet includes the Cyclops miniature ROV/UGV - early versions of which serve with the UK MoD as "Buckeye" and the newly launched Guardian ROV/UGV.

Originally designed to work in confined spaces such as aircraft and trains, the Cyclops/Guardian has been developed so that it now is capable of carrying up to four weapons, or a manipulator - or a combination of both, real-time radiographic equipment and a variety of detectors including chemical and explosives vapour, Laser Range Finders and radiation detectors.

Portable and compact, the addition of a big wheel kit to the standard Mk4D Cyclops and Guardian increases versatility and makes it suitable for use by rapid response teams in areas not accessible to the carrier vehicle. These areas include underground railway systems.
