Łukasiewicz – PIAP delivers robots to Indonesia
The contractual work carried out this time concerned the PIAP Gryf EOD robots. They were received by the Indonesian Army EOD teams, as well as by the Air Force. From June 22 to 25, potential users were trained and the functional transfer of the delivered systems took place. Notably, Łukasiewicz-PIAP robots are operated by all branches of the Indonesian military.
In addition to the PIAP Gryf robots, the Indonesian Armed Forces also received the following accessories:
- Holder for recoilless disruptor, and FNK,
- Active optical fiber reel,
- FNK (Gel Neutralization Kit)
Remember: GRYF robots have been designed to carry out reconnaissance of restricted areas and places that are difficult to access. The robots are equipped with a five-degree-of-freedom manipulator, also offering an option of closing the gripping jaws, allowing the robot to carry objects with a mass of up to 15 kilograms.
PIAP Gryf is equipped with a hybrid transmission, using both wheels and continuous tracks. The robot wheels can be removed, making the system smaller and making it easier to perform operations in tight spaces (using the tracks alone).
Thanks to the drive systems used, the robot can overcome obstacles with slopes of up to 45 degrees. Perfect maneuverability and modular design can be listed among the most distinctive features of this robot. The robot is very light, making the system easy to transport, and its modular design allows the user to quickly reconfigure the device, with quick changes to additional equipment.
The PIAP GRYF ® system is designed to work with a myriad of additional equipment, including disruptor systems (such as the latest recoilless disruptor systems VULKAN CSL 50-40 VUL and VIPER CSL 50-30 VIP), a shotgun semi-automatic, X-rays (like Monos from LOGOS Imaging), explosive smoke sensor, fiber optic barrels and a bus for the remote detonation of explosives.
FNK is a remote-controlled neutralizing gel delivered by the English company CSL. It was designed to deliver liquid nitrogen to hazardous packages, for the temporary neutralization of the electrical supply, or the freezing of all liquid materials.
