Bomb Disposal Robots Received by the Police
In late October, Łukasiewicz – PIAP has finalized the delivery of five large bomb disposal robots for the Polish Police. The contract pertained to the PIAP IBIS mobile robot. The new UGVs are the latest generation of the intervention-inspection INSPECTOR robots manufactured by the Warsaw-based institute – they have been operated by the Police for 20 years now.
PIAP IBIS robots have been delivered with extras dedicated to be used by bomb disposal teams. This makes it possible to utilize pyrotechnic disrupters, portable X-ray systems, or shotguns. The EOD technician may also use the robot’s tool bank, including a glass breaker, wire cutters or a knife for puncturing the tyres. Should radio interference be present in the operational environment, an automatic drum with fibre optical wire would facilitate operations of the robot.
