Peraton has introduced its new subsidiary Peraton Remotec, a mobile robot systems company for hazardous duty operations, and the subsidiary’s advanced platform Andros Spartan Unmanned Ground Vehicle System.
Remotec, Inc. is now branded as Peraton Remotec, after Peraton acquired the company through its Feb. 1 purchase of Northrop Grumman’s integrated Mission Support and IT Solutions business.
“Peraton Remotec’s industry-leading track record in unmanned ground vehicles complements Peraton’s 25 years of experience serving government customers operating in the unmanned surface, underwater and ground domains,” said John Coleman, president of Peraton’s Global Defense & Security sector.
Peraton Remotec has provided services to military, law enforcement and other first responders worldwide for 30 years. It offers a range of Unmanned Ground Vehicles and accessories in the market, with a worldwide installed base of over 2,300 vehicles.
“We look forward to building on the synergies to meet future unmanned system needs while continuing to innovate on behalf of our loyal customers in the military, law enforcement and the broader first responder community,” Coleman added.
Peraton Remotec designed Andros Spartan based on the success and reliability of the Andros F6 series of platforms. Andros Spartan incorporates the design of the Andros F6 series, and adopts the highly dexterous manipulation capabilities of the Andros FX. The new arm design also allows more lift capacity and greater dexterity by adding a roll joint that provides eight degrees of freedom.
“The Andros Spartan offers new enhanced capabilities to serve a diverse range of mission sets,” said Walt Werner, managing director of Peraton Remotec. “Spartan is more than an evolution of the Andros F6 Series of platforms.”
Other features of the Andros Spartan includes an updated power management system that provides over 6 hours of vehicle run time; an updated system electronics; a ruggedized touchscreen laptop operator control unit with 3D system graphics; advanced manipulator controls; and an improved user interface.
“By integrating the best features of each of Peraton Remotec’s families of field-proven EOD robots, Spartan revolutionizes the mid-weight market offering unparalleled functionality of protect our nation and keep danger at a distance,” Werner said.
