SOLON, Ohio – August 3, 2012, 2012 – HDT Global is exhibiting its latest technologies during AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America 2012 in Las Vegas, NV, at Mandalay Bay, August 6-9. From the highly dexterous Adroit™ MK2 robotic arm, to energy efficient expeditionary solutions and GPS-guided cargo delivery parachute systems, HDT is at the forefront of design, development and production of a range of highly-engineered mobile military and emergency response technologies.

The Adroit MK2 arm possesses unmatched dexterity, strength and speed.  Configurations include single and dual arm manipulation capabilities with left- and right- handed options. Weighing only 16 pounds (7.3kg), the lightweight yet rugged system carries an advantage in theater, with the ability to be mounted onto any mobile robotic platform. The power density of an Adroit MK2 arm is several times better than any other available solution, with a load capacity of more than 50 pounds (23 kg) for an 11-degree of freedom configuration. 

“HDT Robotics division is excited to display the Adroit MK2 robotic arm, demonstrating our position as a leader in the industry with exceptional design, meticulous development and production of robotics components and systems,” said Dr. Tom Van Doren, Chief Operating Officer, HDT Robotics division.

HDT Global leads the way in logistics support with comprehensive solutions designed to meet an array of specific field requirements, including rapidly deployable shelters, highly engineered environmental control and power equipment, CBRN collective protection systems, command and control components, and new energy efficiency solutions that deliver more than 75 percent fuel savings over legacy components when combined. The HDT Global Protector robot also lightens loads carried by dismounted infantry by offering a dual capability to clear the trail of IEDs while carrying up to 1000 pounds of payload.

Belonging to the Guided Precision Aerial Delivery Systems (GPADS) family, the MicroFly® parachute system will also be on display. Using GPS guidance to autonomously deliver payloads to specific locations, the MicroFly system improves military mission capabilities without compromising safety or increasing training requirements. Airborne Systems, a division of HDT Global, provides the largest array of GPADS systems and is a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of best-of-class parachute systems for uses including recovery, deceleration and cargo delivery.

HDT Global will be displaying at Booth #2828 and Airborne Systems will be displaying at Booth #3010 during AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America 2012.
