Łukasiewicz Research Network - PIAP has delivered the first lot of the RPP robots (Patrol-Portable Robot). One example of the system was being showcased at the booth of the 2nd “Mazowiecki” EOD Regiment, during this year’s edition of the MSPO defence industry exhibition organized in Kielce.
As we were told by Andrzej Woźniak, Łukasiewicz-PIAP representative, delivery “of another batch of 17 examples” is expected to be completed this year, with another lot planned to be delivered in 2021.
One of the first soldiers trained in using the RPP platform was showcasing the unit itself and its purpose.
“Its purpose is to support the engineering elements of the military. The operation is intuitive, as the robot also features a number of accessories. The RPP can be utilized in the following scenarios: Inspection of passenger and heavy-duty cars, aircraft, buildings, for hazardous materials, detection of chemical contamination (...)”
Another Łukasiewicz-PIAP robot was showcased by the Polish Military Police. Its capabilities have been outlined to us by a bomb technician of the MP Special Branch, based in Warsaw.
