Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) robotics specialists will demonstrate the company’s T7 Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) robot at Raven’s Challenge, the world’s premier event for EOD and counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED) technology and tactics. The challenge will be held in Hua Hin, Thailand, Sept. 5-9, 2016.
The multi-day event brings multi-national, multi-service teams together to tackle realistic EOD scenarios with functional training that replicates real-world incidents. The exercises are an opportunity for experts to share knowledge and best practices while demonstrating new technologies at the cutting edge of this critical dimension of public safety.
“Harris has assembled one of the world’s finest robotics teams to extend the reach of human operators to safely and effectively deal with C-IED and EOD situations,” said Ed Zoiss, president, Electronic Systems. “Years of research and continuous feedback from active-duty operators have gone into building the T7, and we look forward to showing the world what this innovative system can do.”
