ADG IS SURVIVABILITY
ADG provides military and tactical customers around the world with a growing and diversified portfolio of products that span the survivability spectrum.
ADG’s Interrogation Arm is a vehicle-mounted crane system designed to investigate and remove Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The arm operates from inside the mine-protected vehicle, which increases survivability. Designed as an independent component, the Interrogation Arm can be attached to most vehicles already in theatre. Adapted from 45 years of civilian use, the arm was recognized as one of the U.S. Army’s Top Ten Inventions of 2007.
Thermal imaging crane extension enables users to safely seek out and identify IEDs and other explosive anti-personnel devices over barriers, into culverts, and in other locations not viewable to the naked eye.
A proprietary grasping rake attachment enables the operator to safely dig up and remove mines, IEDs, and other explosive anti-personnel devices.
The unit’s easy-to-deploy interface system and vehicle specific mounting kits give almost any vehicle the ability to find and remove explosive devices.
Special design requests for the interrogation arm can be fast-tracked. Design-to-delivery is measured in days instead of months.
Instrument Display – CANBUS sensors are added to create feedback for every crane function. Important values are displayed to the operator including: relative position, articulation angle, extended distance, lifting pressure, and weight in crane’s grasp. Users can activate the auto-stow program at the push of a bottom to return the crane to its stow cradle no matter which orientation the crane is in.
HP Upgrades – The hydraulic pump unit has been upgraded to run at a higher flow adding more runtime. This allows for multiple crane functions to be activated at once and reduce the interrogation time.
Dual Cameras – With the addition of a junction box and another boom camera cable, two cameras can be used. This allows for one camera (equipped with a spotlight) to be mounted at the end of the boom for a close-up inspection while another at the knuckle provides a broader view of the entire interrogation area.
