Starter will be a medium to large RCV. The project successfully passed Main Gate in May 2017. The endorsed Single Statement of User Need (SSUN) is: ‘The user requires a deployable, robust capability to enable the remote location, diagnosis and render safe of Explosive Ordnance on all deployed operations, at all scales of effort’. Starter is required to enable an EOD team to conduct remote explosive ordnance reconnaissance, manipulation and neutralisation. It is required to operate above ground, underground (in a limited role) or within buildings and may suffer temporary immersion in water during operation. It is required to operate with all current and expected in-service EOD weapons and ancillaries in order to enable the defeat of a wide range of current and expected future EOD targets and threats, including vehicle-borne Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The operator burden, both physical and cognitive, must allow operation by a single person without reliance upon a dedicated command and control vehicle, the EOD RCV will also be required to fit into existing vehicles the intention is for Mastiff III and Pinzgauer however the Authority retains the right to amend the type of vehicles.
