Arson Bomb Squad Robot

As the only full-time Bomb Squad in Washington State, Seattle Police Department Arson Bomb Squad needs the proper tools to carry out their mission and keep our communities safe.

ABS's 13 year old bomb robot has struggled to handle the approximately 200 "E incidents" (chemical, biological, or explosive incidents) annually in Seattle and throughout the region.  With a failing battery and breaking parts, it is time for a piece of updated technology.

Seattle is home to a number of high-profile potential targets, and unfortunately the threat of chemical and biological incidents is very real and increasing during these times of civil unrest.

Without a working robot, bomb threat investigations can shut down large areas of the city and commerce for an entire day and put officers and citizens at great risk.

SPD ABS has identified the Telemax HYBRID Robot as the ideal instrument to meet their needs going forward, representing the state-of-the-science in commercially available mobile robot manipulators for unstructured and hazardous environments.

While the total cost of the robot is approximatey $350,000, thanks to a matching funds grant, we only need to raise approximately $90,000 to purchase this important and life-saving piece of equipment.
