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.
