Iguana E carries out reconnaissance, inspection and EOD missions. Its role ranges from location to the neutralization of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), landmines and other types of explosives such as booby-trapped vehicles.
Made of composite materials, this UGV has one of the best weight / performance ratios on the market. Its high performance mobility and architecture (narrow width, four independent flippers and extended arm) allow access to tight spaces.
Compact and modular, the latest generation of IGUANA is dedicated to interventions in places difficult to access such as aircraft cabins, train or on buses to ensure inspection and intervention on suspicious luggage .
IGUANA is a robot with electric motorization of 50 kg with a payload of 40 kg. It can be equipped with multi-axis arms with extended capacities (6 or 8 axes), it has 2 day / night color cameras. With a horizontal reach of up to 1.8 m and a vertical reach up to 2.8 m, IGUANA can lift up to 20 kg with a stamina of 2.5 hours and a maximum speed of 6 km / h.
This robot will equip the French Armies: ECA Group has won a contract worth more than € 30 million for the supply of land-based robots (IGUANA) for demining at the Ministry of the Armed Forces.
