Warsaw-based manufacturer of specialized robots fulfilled another foreign contract and delivered more of it`s platforms to a NATO country. Initially PIAP was known for it`s specialized EOD designs destined for force departments. In the recent years, PIAP Institute broadened their range of products with equipment for armed forces. The wider product range includes solutions such as the PIAP GRYF or the RPP Portable Patrol Robots.
The lightened PIAP GRYF has a 4-axis manipulator and a gripper arm. Robot can pick up loads of up to 10 kg. Wheels are quickly removable which lessens the platform`s footprint thus making operation in confined spaces easier. Due to it`s propulsion system, robot can traverse obstacles and terrain of up to 45 degrees inclination. Low weight makes it easy to transport the platform while the modular construction enables quick and easy changes of accessories.
