Abstract
Accurate Automation will design and build a Multiple Engagement Autonomous Neutralizer (MEAN) System that will allow an EOD team to quickly and safely engage multiple IEDs from a safe area. This design exceeds capabilities of any current system because it will allow the technician to preload the system with at least 8 shots, attach it to a robot, drive the robot down range where the device can be identified, select the appropriate PAN shot to neutralize the threat, and then select another shot to reengage or engage another device all while the technician remains in the safe area. The proposed system will also employ 2 or more water shots without user intervention qualifying the system as semi-automatic and allowing fully autonomous operation from a safe area. The proposed system will function in a fielded environment with simple cleaning access to ensure lasting performance and ease of maintenance in sand and immersive environments. Accurate Automation has a lengthy autonomous system development and commercialization track record. Accurate Automation will leverage its knowledge and capabilities to produce a very robust and competent system that can easily and effectively be used by military EOD teams and civil /federal bomb squads.
