Provectus Robotics Solutions releases version 1.7.1 of the Advanced Robotic Intelligence System (ARIS) and
accompanying Remote Control Station (RCS). The ARIS software suite converts virtually any unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) into a highly
versatile robotics platform. The Remote Control Station (RCS) provides an operator with real-time vehicle telemetry and the ability to
control all on-board payloads and sub-systems. A video of the software in action with a Polaris MVRS platform can be found
Provectus Robotics successfully completed a demonstration of the ARI AMSTAF UGV at NATD 2011. Two non-lethal weapon systems were
showcased as part of the demonstration: Combined Systems' CTS VENOM and Indusec's Inferno Intenso. A video of the launch can be found
The 2011 North American Technology Demonstration (NATD) is sponsored by NATO, and jointly hosted by the United States Department of Defense Non-Lethal Weapon Program and the Canadian Department of National Defence to showcase Non-Lethal Capabilities that can be acquired and fielded quickly in support of ISAF and counter-terrorism operations.
Provectus Robotics Solutions was awarded a second contract by Neptec Design Group to provide software components for the Artemis Jr. Rover project. Artemis Jr. is being designed and developed for the Canadian Space Agency to meet the requirements of NASA's Regolith & Environment Science and Oxygen & Lunar Volatile Extraction (RESOLVE) project. The RESOLVE project aims to demonstrate the utility of "in situ resource utilization" on the moon. Artemis Jr. is being designed for the project as a scaled-down version of Artemis rover using NASA's design criteria. Artemis Jr. is to be delivered in March of 2012.
Provectus Robotics successfully completed the WM Robots Knight arm integration project for RCMP. PRS supplied and installed the manipulator
arm, associated control electronics and communications system into the existing Polaris Ranger MVRS platform. A custom mounting system was
employed to afix the arm to the Polaris chassis while still maintaining the ability to tow large payloads. The complete system was tested
and delivered two weeks ahead of schedule.
