RE2 Robotics to Develop Underwater Manipulator for EOD

Objective is Lightweight, Low-Cost and Easily Deployable

Pittsburgh, USA-based RE2 Robotics, a Carnegie Mellon spinoff known for its expertise in modular manipulation, has won a Small Business Innovation Research contract to develop an inflatable Underwater Dual Manipulator for the USN Office of Naval Research.

The system to be developed is for integration onto unmanned underwater vehicles for EOD technicians. “Historically, we have developed manipulation systems for EOD ground robots. Over the past year we have worked closely with the Navy to transition our expertise to underwater systems,” commented Jorgen Pedersen, President and CEO.

A Phase I contract will encompass the design of a system that is lightweight, low-coast and easily deployable, according to the company. A prototype will be built and tested under Phase II.
