BOULDER, Colo., May 5th, 2015 – Stratom and QinetiQ, North America (QNA) have partnered together to release Stratom's Gripper Remote Tool Changing System (GRTCS) on QinetiQ's next generation IOP compliant TALON V EOD / IED defeat Man Transportable Robotic System (MTRS). The ability for TALON V to carry and remotely load an array of IED defeat specific tools is a key system enhancement. The GRTCS provides the operator with the capability to carry and load tools downrange, thereby decreasing the overall mission time and time on target, while greatly expanding the opportunities to defeat and exploit the threat.
The GRTCS integrated with the TALON V allows the user to carry and interchange three (3) mission specific tools that can be remotely loaded from the User Control Station. The GRTCS system comes standard with six (6) specially designed EOD / IED Defeat tools.
“Stratom is pleased to offer a unique capability to increase the flexibility and capability of the TALON V. Partnering with QNA to provide our Warfighters an improved capability that will help save lives is at the core of our mission and values,” says Thomas Gonzalez, Senior Vice President, Stratom, Inc.
Nathan Desmeule, International Business Manager, QinetiQ North America stated, “Adding the Stratom GRTCS to the TALON V provides improved capabilities, allowing the operator to negotiate specifics to their mission that they could not have done with the standard gripper."
