SOLON, Ohio – May 30, 2012 – HDT Global, provider of highly-engineered mobile military technology and emergency response solutions, is demonstrating its latest technology at CANSEC 2012 in Ottawa, Ontario, May 30 – 31. A leader in fulfilling future requirements, HDT will showcase its advanced integrated expeditionary solutions, from expeditionary shelter capabilities to newly introduced robotics technologies.

Utilizing a fully integrated solution, designed and manufactured by HDT, these expeditionary shelter systems provide peace of mind and the protection needed in austere and hazardous environments. At the core of the modular and scalable complexes are the field-proven, energy efficient shelters, filtration systems, environmental control units, heaters, and power generators that work in concert to ensure the safety of the assets inside.

“HDT is excited to enhance understanding of our integrated solutions at this year’s CANSEC,” said Jim Daniels, Vice President of International Business, HDT Global. “From cutting-edge energy efficient expeditionary applications to a growing robotics division, HDT is leading the way in rapidly deployable, force support technologies for the most rugged and austere environments.”

Also on display is the Adroit™ manipulator MK2 robotic arm system. The next generation in HDT’s dexterous manipulator family, the MK2 family features a new three degree of freedom torso for dual arm systems, providing even greater dexterity. The MK2 three-finger conformal end effector has four degrees of freedom with an opposable thumb and can use a variety of tools designed for a human hand. The power density of an MK2 arm is several times better than any other available solution. The arm has a load capacity over 50 pounds (23 kg) yet weighs only 16 pounds (7.3kg) for an 11 degree of freedom configuration (including end effector). Two-arm MK2 systems can lift in excess of 110 lb (50 kg).

HDT Global will be displaying at Stand # 1006 during CANSEC 2012.
