ZEUS, The Ultimate Modular Robot
ZEUS is a lightweight, highly modular and robust robot or Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) designed for teams that must carry out remote activities.
By increasing the distance between operators and equipment carrying out dangerous tasks, high levels of safety can be achieved.
ZEUS is able to perform a wide range of remote tasks from Search, EOD, CBRNe and nuclear, integrating all your tools to carry out your tasks effectively.
Its modular design allows you to configure the robot in field and carry out maintenance tasks quickly and easily keeping your robot availability to a maximum.
The 3 section articulated arm has tremendous dexterity allowing you to gain access to the most awkward places and deploy a range of tool such as disruptors, X ray systems or sensors.
ZEUS utilises a standard off the shelf battery in both the robot and control unit, reducing your battery inventory and typically can last up to 4 hours on mission.
Using an intuitive touch screen control unit, no language barriers exist, and the robot operation is quick to learn.

Capable of accepting a wide range of disruptors and sensors, ZEUS is ready to support you in your safe keeping duties.

Reach and Dexterity Capability
To search and render safe IEDs, you need to be able to reach up high, stretch out in front, behind and to the side. Devices could be in any orientation and you need to be able to aim disruptors easily at them, regardless of their location. Suspect devices could even be below you, hidden in culverts or under bridges.
Mission duration is a critical factor and ZEUS’ 2-4 hour mission duration delivers. You need to be confident that the battery will survive the mission and give you sufficient feedback to replace or recharge batteries before it is too late. A robot stuck in an uncleared area gives 2 problems. Loss of remote capability and also having to send an operator to retrieve it.
The very best equipment, as designed and produced by NIC Instruments, will always achieve the desired result as all applications are vigorously tested. To ensure that all equipment is used correctly and works consistently, NIC Instruments provides comprehensive training to ensure success when using your equipment on live tasks.
Great ideas will always remain great ideas unless someone can articulate them into reality. And so it is with the EOD/CBRNe community as well as any other. Your ideas, thoughts, plans and processes need translating into the tools to do the job, and this is where NIC Instruments’ true strength lies.
