RE2, Inc. Announces New Lightweight Modular Robotic Arm – DM4-A2

- RE2 Integrates Arm onto QinetiQ North America’s IOP compliant Dragon Runner™ 10 Interoperable -

 

PITTSBURGH, PA – May 19, 2015 – RE2, Inc., a leading developer of modular robotic manipulation systems, announced today that the company has developed a new high-performance robotic arm. The DM4-A2 robotic arm is highly modular, lightweight, and power-dense. The DM4-A2 is composed of a 4-degree-of-freedom manipulator and a 2-finger gripper. The manipulator and gripper are attached via RE2's End-Effector Interface.

The DM4-A2 can be easily mounted on to unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) for use by the military’s dismounted units.  The addition of a robotic arm onto a UGV enhances the robot’s capabilities and ability to remotely interact with the environment. RE2 recently integrated the DM4-A2 onto the IOP compliant Dragon Runner™ 10 Interoperable (DR 10-I) by QinetiQ North America. The integrated system can be viewed in a demonstration video at http://youtu.be/C5iD28vsEto.

“RE2 is dedicated to developing interoperable technologies that easily integrate onto the industry’s leading robotic platforms,” stated Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO of RE2. “The integration of our new DM4-A2 robotic arm onto QinetiQ’s DR 10-I is an excellent example of an interoperable system that meets the military’s current need for a modular lightweight robot.”

The DM4-A2 is compliant with the Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robotic System (AEODRS) architecture, meaning that it interoperates physically, electrically, and logically with other AEODRS Capability Modules. Also, the DM4-A2 is compliant with Interoperability Profiles (IOP). The DM4-A2 can be configured to be either AEODRS-compliant or IOP-compliant.
