Our Python HTR is a medium sized platform designed to climb stairs and over difficult terrain, but is still light enough to be deployed by one person. It has been designed and engineered to offer the latest technologies available to meet the demanding needs of the hazmat / CBRN, tactical and reconnaissance markets, which is where it’s HTR name was derived from.
It offers the latest in operator control software called our Digital Command and Communications Suite (DCCS), which is both innovative and easy to use. The DCCS incorporates an intuitive user interface that utilizes touch gestures common in many of today’s multi-media devices, in order to control the robot, adjust cameras, modify settings, change views and more.
The software also incorporates secure, digital communication protocol that transmits crystal clear, non-rolling, static free video, all the way up to your range limit. In addition, it provides extended communication range between the Operator Control Unit (OCU) and the robot that is over ½ mile, and allows for the quick attachment of an array of sensors for CBRN and hazmat applications.
The heart of this new system is SSI’s revolutionary Robotics Relay System for Communication in Urban Environments (RRSCUE). In simple terms, this specialized software incorporates advanced “mesh” networking capabilities that enable the operator to be in control of multiple robots or relay surveillance cameras at the same time using one operator control unit (OCU). More importantly, it enables the operator to control a robot further downrange by relaying the signal through another robot(s) on the network that may provide a better communication signal, than through the OCU directly.
This enables the operator to relay and redirect the signal around houses, buildings, or other obstacles, in order to continue missions where other robot communication systems fail. Even more importantly, the operator can drive multiple unmanned robot systems into place remotely, creating a series of mobile signal transmission points that can be repositioned as necessary, in order to maintain optimal signal strength with your robot. This may include when you need to reposition your robot in response to barriers to signal strength, or adjust to changing circumstances, or other demands downrange.
We also incorporate the use of modular components into the design of our new system, which enables the operator to field swap out / configure all accessories, cameras, and OEM monitors. Even our Master Control Unit (MCU) or “robot brain”, which houses all critical electronic systems for the robot, can be swapped out in the field if necessary – without the need for any tools.
