Current Projects [Past Projects]
Asbestos Pipe-Insulation Removal Robot System (BOA)
External pipe-crawling asbestos-removal robot
Automates copper processing
Container Handling
NREC developed autonomous and semi-autonomous robotic systems for moving containerized plants to and from the field.
Dragon Runner
NREC collaborated with Automatika, Inc. (AI) to develop Dragon Runner, an ultra-rugged, portable, lightweight reconnaissance robot for use by the U.S. Marine Corps in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) for urban reconnaissance and sentry missions.
The NREC is developing an untethered, long range (2,500 ft +), gas line visual inspection robot system that provides real-time video from inside the line, can be deployed in live lines, and can pass through all angles and bends of both 6" and 8" lines.
Gas Mains Repair and Inspection System for Live Entry Environments (GRISLEE)
GRISLEE, a remotely controllable, modular leak-detection, imaging and repair robot system for the real-time in-situ inspection and repair of live distribution gas mains.
Highly Mobile Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV)
Autonomous cross-country navigation
Reconfigurable in-tank mobile cleanup robot
Neptune II
Underwater Robot
Pipeline Explorer
NREC designed, built and deployed Pipeline Explorer, the first untethered, remotely-controlled robot for inspecting live underground natural gas distribution pipelines.
