The US Air Force wants to buy a big robot to help with bomb disposal | Defense News

US Air Force is seeking its system to build a robot that can dispose of bombs and other explosives. They are looking for their system instead of jumping into the CRS-H program of the US Army. The robot must small enough to fit inside the Base Response Vehicle or Bomb Squad Emergency Response Vehicle that includes passing through a 32-inch-wide door opening and parking into space 91 inches long and 63 inches high. The weight requirement is set at a maximum of 1,000 pounds and Air Force also called for a system with a minimum 800-meter, line-of-sight radio range, and a 3-hour runtime that will allow it to complete most EOD missions.
