I founded RE2 Robotics in 2001 after working as a robotics engineer for Carnegie Mellon’s National Robotics Engineering Center. Our focus is on developing robotic manipulator arms that keep users out of harm’s way. We’re currently supporting the Office of Naval Research by adapting our dual-arm robotic system technology, the Maritime Highly Dexterous Manipulation System, for an underwater environment. The system will provide explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) divers with the same capabilities that robotic systems have brought to EOD technicians operating on land and allow them to inspect and dismantle underwater improvised explosive devices on vessels, bridges, and piers from a safe standoff distance.
