Abstract
The Vadum Multi-shot Robotic EOD Disrupter (MRED) system builds upon the known effectiveness and versatility of the 12-gauge SD-IED disrupter by adding systems to enable remote loading and firing of multiple shots from EOD robotic platforms. Multi-shot capability allows engagement of one or more targets with one or more different user-selectable shot types, without driving the robot back and forth from the target zone to the standoff zone for manual reloads. Remote reload capability saves robot battery energy (by saving trips up and down range), and allows the operator more time to observe the target and formulate the plan of engagement for each shot.
