Rover

The Rover product concept was developed under a contract from the Australian Department of Defence to fulfil a need for a full performance digital medical x-ray imager, light enough to be used in deployed medical facilities.

Key Design Features:

  • Full trauma imaging capability 40-110kv, 50mAs;
  • Ultra-light weight at 95kg;
  • Ground Clearance allows for 75mm step up;
  • Operation on uneven ground;
  • Spare battery tray swap out in under a minute;
  • Hard shell reusable plastic packaging for military transport

Today Bomb Disposal Technicians expose themselves to life threatening situations in order to capture the high resolution x-ray image that they need to assess and make-safe potential terrorist weapons.
The Australian Defence contracted Micro-X to demonstrate a proof of concept for stand-off imaging of Improvised Explosive Devices. This contract was successfully completed and proved resolution of less than 0.5mm.

Now the miniature MBI product is under development, in a configuration which allows it to be carried in the jaws of a deployed in any standard Explosive Ordinance Disposal robot, sending high quality x-ray images to a remote operator control station.
