IED Disposal Military Robot

Improvised Explosive Device (IED) disposal robots perform a critical role on today’s battlefield. These robots need to be extremely rugged and reliable yet lightweight and easy to maintain in the field.

Allied Motion’s engineers developed versions of our frameless Quantum and HT series servo motors for the propulsion and arm axes of an IED search and disposal robot. Allied’s design team optimized the motors in order to maximize torque production at lower speed and give the robots reserve power for climbing uneven terrains and rock strewn slopes.
