The British Company ARMTRAC proposes its 20T C-IED Robot Mk2 Unmanned Ground Vehicle to the Colombian armed forces to fight and destroy cocaine fields of narco trafficants using specific tools mounted at the front of the demining robot.
As an ISO 9001:2015 company, Armtrac provides quality mechanical solutions using remote-controlled technology and on some of the larger machines, an operator’s cabin as well to provide a “bird’s eye” view of clearance operations. All equipment uses hydraulic quick hitch couplings to attach a variety of Counter-EO and engineering toolkits quickly. Armtrac products can not only mitigate the effects of EO but also operate in secondary engineering & construction roles as well.
Sales during 2018/19 included supplying 8 wheeled A100-350 Mk2s to Saudi Arabia with Armtrac’s C-IED Mine Roller System on the front and a clearance toolkit(Tiller/Flail) on the rear should a victim operated device be encountered on an intended route. The A100 vehicle can operate toolkits or detection equipment, including Ground Probing Radar (GPR), in both directions with the operator facing in the direction of travel because the operator’s seat & controls can swivel through 180 degrees.
The Armtrac 20T Mk2 Robot is a remote-controlled Small (Heavy) Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) designed to undertake high-risk investigation and De-mining/C-IED clearance operations. Four of these A20Ts are accredited and operating in Colombia to support operations to clear terrorist IEDs in challenging terrain. The Robot can be fitted with surface and sub-surface C-EO equipment, detection systems (including GPR) and an advanced manipulator for investigating and analyzing the threat.
Armtrac prides itself on producing innovative solutions to a variety of different threats and can design and manufacture for bespoke requirements; this includes C-IED Mine Roller Systems for APCs in service with different nations.
