Hazard prediction software aids remote ordnance disposal.

Allen Vanguard : 25 March, 2008  (New Product)
Predictive tool for assessing damage area around suspect devices brings additional functionality to remote bomb disposal robots.
Hazard prediction software aids remote ordnance disposal.
Leading global security specialist Allen-Vanguard has launched ROV-Track CBRNE, a unique software application for its Defender and Vanguard bomb disposal robots which predicts and illustrates CBRNE hazard areas around a suspect device.

The hazard prediction is based on data compiled by meteorological and CBRNE sensors integrated with the ROV and transmitted to the command console. Scene controllers are provided with a clear visual display of potential down-wind exposure enabling the formulation of a safe and effective response. Continual recalculation based on prevailing conditions means that controllers can make decisions based on real-time status.

ROV-Track CBRNE predicts the hazard area based on relevant standards for blast effect, fragmentation and the characteristics of CBRN agents. However, these standards may be manually updated in line with the user's experience and response protocols. Defender has integral GPS and can be fitted with up to four sensors as well as a set of disruptors. The smaller, more lightweight Vanguard can carry two sensors.

"ROV-Track CBRNE presents controllers with vital information in a clear, user-friendly format," says Glyn Buckler, sales director at Allen-Vanguard. "It can function as an independent incident control point management tool for first responders or communicate seamlessly with central incident control applications. The ability to modify language and maps in line with national standards make it a valuable piece of equipment for bomb squads and HAZMAT first response teams anywhere in the world."
