‘With this spanner, I thee wed…’
CBRN and robotics have been an engagement made in heaven for about the past 15 years, but only recently does it look like the wedding is going to be finalised! The ability to be able to securely assess and manage hazardous scenes has previously dominated by a complicated decision over what personal protective equipment to wear, but now the choice could be about whether a situation is best handled from the ground or air and sending the right robotic mission module in to deal with it.
CBRNe World’s Asymmetric Stadium Threat event has a half day pre-conference workshop on the 5th of June that is going to look at the ‘art of the possible’ in CBRN UAVs (Unmanned Air Vehicles) and UGVs (Unmanned Ground Vehicles). Looking at a variety of projects that are bringing robotic assessment of terrorist and criminal scenes together this FREE half day workshop will showcase differences in thinking, technology and missions and provide a potential roadmap to first responders that want to use this technology, and companies that seek to understand how they can better shape their offerings to take advantage of it. This workshop will be held at Hotel Football, right next to the famous Old Trafford, home to CBRNe World’s Asymmetric Stadium Threat Event, which takes place the next day (https://cbrneworld.com/events/cbrne-manchester).
