RE2 Robotics wins SBIR contract to develop new automated robotic technology

Category: Robots

RE2 Robotics has received a small business innovation research (SBIR) Phase II contract to develop automated robotic technology capable of assisting combat medics in the field.

The $1m contract was awarded by the US Army SBIR office and US Army Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC).

Under the contract, RE2 Robotics will develop a new medical module payload for military ground vehicles, called Lifeline, that will enable medics to evacuate soldiers.

RE2 Robotics president and CEO Jorgen Pedersen said: “Our team is honoured that the army has selected RE2 once again to further develop technology to help improve the safety of our brave military personnel while in hazardous combat situations.

"The Lifeline technology, in addition to our Patient Assist Robotic Arm and the ARIBO Assistive Arm programmes, further extends our reach into the healthcare market."

“The Lifeline technology, in addition to our Patient Assist Robotic Arm and the ARIBO Assistive Arm programmes, further extends our reach into the healthcare market.”

Using Lifeline, one person will be able to perform extractions instead of the usual two, RE2 Robotics said.

The medical solution is said to help combat medics evacuate wounded soldiers under hostile conditions.

A prototype of the robotic technology was developed by the company during Phase I of the SBIR programme.

Phase II of the programme aims to improve the solution's design with a major focus on weight reduction to reduce the burden on soldiers.
