ANDROS robot used by a bomb technician. The robot weighs 800 pounds. It runs on two marine batteries, but can be hardwired for continuous power. It can gain access to almost any location on land and is always the first response option, to keep humans from danger. The robot can be operated remotely or by a bomb tech with on-board hand controls. Remote controlled vehicles are used by many police department bomb-squads to defuse or detonate explosives. The ANDROS is a series of remote control military robots designed by REMOTEC, a subsidiary of Northrup Grumman. The ANDROS series is primarily designed for military, explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), and law enforcement or SWAT applications. The ANDROS gained notability in 2016 for being involved in the first instance of a robot being used to kill another person, Micah Xavier Johnson, the gunman involved in the 2016 shooting of Dallas police officers.
