The Digital Vanguard is a multipurpose robot for responding to EOD & IEDD and CBRN threats, surveillance and tactical missions. Its low profile, mobility and dexterity enable this EOD robot to access confined spaces such as under vehicles, as well as the aisles and storage compartments of airplanes, buses and trains.
The Digital Vanguard—also called the DV—bomb disposal robot has an auxiliary port and telescopic arm to deploy an array of bomb disposal equipment including disruptors, cameras, electronic countermeasures, X-ray equipment and CBRNe sensors.
The x500 Integrated Command Portal is the most recent upgrade to the Digital Vanguard. The x500 controls all robot functions, arm and claw positioning, and cameras. It records two way audio, full HD video and captures still images, as well as displaying all data received from the optional ROVISS Integrated Sensor Suite, e.g. CBRNe sensors. Its Graphic User Interface (GUI) can be set to most languages, including the ability to have the operator manuals display in native languages.
The x500 has easy to learn controls, which requires minimal follow-on training. Lightweight and a small footprint for easy portability, it offers a Sunlight Readable Quadra Clear® 39.6cm (15.6”) full HD 1080p (1920×1080) 800 NITs widescreen display. The x500 is rated at IP65 and meets MIL-STD 810G, MIL-STD-461F and ANSI/ISA 12.12.01 standards.
