Eurosatory 2014

At arm’s length (ES14E1)

16 June 2014

Zagreb-based Croatian firm DOK-ING is showcasing a new robotic manipulator arm for its proven MV-4 combat engineer unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) for the first time at Eurosatory (Hall 6, Stand D697).

“Without the arm, the MV-4 has already proved to be highly capable with the US Army,” said Ante Milicevic, VP of business development at DOKING.

“Adding the manipulator arm significantly extends the capabilities of the UGV to fulfil an even wider range of tasks.”

These tasks include remotely lifting and moving objects such as telegraph poles or tree trunks that may hinder the line of advance. DOK-ING has also developed a rear forklift and rear shovel to further widen the MV-4’s capabilities. It already undertakes many combat engineer tasks using flails, grippers, rollers and dozer blades.

DOK-ING is also showing several of its other robust UGVs, such as the MV-10, a medium weight demining vehicle to clear anti-personnel and antitank mines, and its MVF-5, a multifunction fire-fighting vehicle. The MVD-XLPD extralow profile remotely controlled vehicle is designed for areas deemed unsafe or unproductive for humans to enter.
