Andros F6B Robot: The Bomb Disposal Robot


Andros F6B Robot, Andros F6B

Andros F6B Robot: Thursday night, the Dallas Police Department (DPD) used a bomb disposal robot with lethal force. After hours of negotiations failed, the police strapped a pound of C4 and a detonation cord to the robot, maneuvered the robot near the suspect, and detonated, killing the 25-year-old suspect Micah Johnson. In a police statement issued on Saturday, the DPD named the bot used in this unprecedented operation—the Remotec Andros F5 model. Although no longer sold by Remotec, the F5 appears to be an earlier model of the current Andros F6 bomb disposal robot. According to a 2012 product sheet, the new F6B can carry up to 60 lbs with its arm fully extended, meaning its one pound, lethal payload wasn’t even close to the maximum amount it could carry.
