Robotic Maintenance Vehicle
The Robotic Maintenance Vehicle (RMV) combines an integrated air blow-off system, advanced vision system, SealMaster CrackPro, Stateline Generator, and a FANUC robot to perfectly clean, measure, and seal asphalt cracks more quickly than traditional workers while also removing them from harm’s way.
Laser Ablation - Sustainable, Emerging, Advanced Machine Tools
Light energy cleans surfaces of paint and rust. A laser paired with beam delivery optics delivers light energy to the surface disrupting the bond creating a chip. It is vaporized as it is vacuumed up through the plasma and the particulate is captured in a filter for disposal.
Reusable Energy Absorbing Pads (REAP)
REAP was designed to replace the current one-time use cardboard honeycomb. REAP was subjected to several in-house tests, drop test at Natick, and finally airdrop at Air Force Base in Tucson, AZ. The latter test resulted in issuance of UAT. REAP is in production.
