Parosha Innovators B.V., based in St. Annaparochie (The Netherlands), have developed a versatile deployable UGV robot: the Parosha Cheatah GOSAFER. The robot is designed to support the emergency services in a range of tasks, including the transportation of materials (it has a payload of 1000kg), reconnaissance and surveillance, detection and inspection, EOD, and rescue missions.
The Parosha Cheatah GOSAFER is fitted with 10 road wheels and has a large hull providing space for traction batteries. The Parosha Cheatah GOSAFER has an electric propulsion, each track sprocket driven by a high power permanent magnet electric DC-motor and battery pack with an extreme high energy-density using the latest battery technology for long range operations. The Parosha Cheatah GOSAFER is fitted with a hydraulic operated 2,5 meter robot arm and hydraulic gripper and other remote attachable special tools.
Provisions are made to accommodate and install day- and night video camera, thermal imaging equipment, an integrated position locating system and laser rangefinder capable of accurately determining the location of targets, acoustic detection system, AN/VDR-2 nuclear detection system, real time data transmitting system.
The Parosha Cheatah GOSAFER is rugged, mechanically tough and reliable, and needs minimal maintenance. The payload of the Parosha Cheatah GOSAFER is 110kg and is operational in most types of climates and weather conditions. The Parosha Cheatah GOSAFER is transportable by a short wheelbase Land Rover. Heavy duty D-shackles are fitted at the front end and rear end for lifting, lashing and towing purposes. During transport in vehicles, aircraft and helicopters, traction batteries can be charged.
