The laser will be installed on a special armored car. The whole system is called RADBO. Its main purpose is the destruction of unexploded ordnance at the runway of airfields. The range of the laser is up to 300 meters. In addition, RADBO is equipped with a special manipulator with a “claw” for clearing blockages with a load capacity of over 22 kg.
The machine is equipped with infrared cameras for the detection of unexploded ordnance and two generators that provide the equipment with the necessary energy. Marshall Dock Dutton, the head of the Air Force modernization programs, an expert in explosive ordnance disposal, commented on the test:
“On the runways of airfields attacked or abandoned by the enemy, there may be thousands of unexploded ordnance. RADBO will allow us to shorten the time to neutralize them in a matter of hours and restart the runway. “
