Gemini-Scout

Category: Robotics > Dismantling and Retrieval > Wheeled/Tracked System
Reference # : Model No :

The Gemini-Scout is a mine-rescue robot that would eliminate some of the unknowns of mine rescue operations and arm first responders with the most valuable tool: information.

The Gemini-Scout Mine Rescue Robot was designed to enter hazardous areas and provide relief to trapped miners. It’s able to navigate through 18 inches of water, crawl over boulders and rubble piles, and move in ahead of rescuers to evaluate precarious environments and help plan operations.

This robotic scout can haul food, air packs and medicine to those trapped underground. It is equipped with two-way radios and can be configured to drag survivors to safety. The Gemini-Scout can operate in explosive atmospheres and can also operate submerged.
