SHOT Show 2017: Med-Eng Introduces New AVENGER ROV
Assisting EOD Teams Defeat Terrorist Threats
At SHOT Show, Med-Eng announced the launch of the AVENGER Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) at booth #12762. This bomb disposal and tactical robot has been engineered to provide police and military response teams with enhanced capabilities to manage ongoing and emerging threats posed by terrorists, particularly in urban environments where Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) are of concern.
The AVENGER, designed and manufactured by ICP NewTech, is a mid-sized ROV with most of the operational capabilities typically found only in much larger and more expensive robots, according to the company. Its performance-to-size ratio is outstanding and reflects the advanced electro-mechanical engineering that guided its development. The AVENGER’s highly dextrous arm and claw can easily reach inside, above and below cars, pick-up trucks and delivery vans, to remotely investigate suspicious devices, such as IEDs.
