IAI presents SAHAR autonomous robotic route clearance system
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) presents SAHAR – an autonomous robotic route clearance system. SAHAR is a joint development of IAI, QinetiQ North America and Watairpoll. A model of the system will be presented at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) exhibition.
SAHAR is a fully autonomous robotic system designed for the efficient performance of combat engineering missions. The system handles the process of route clearance including functions such as environmental terrain mapping, surveillance, removal of roadblocks and disposal of IEDs. The system is designed to handle a variety of tasks, missions and threats autonomously.
Combat engineering missions include route clearance, landmines and explosive device neutralisation in diverse operational arenas. These missions are currently executed using manned and remote-controlled mechanical engineering equipment.
