Background

ALEPH’s Special Situations Section at first used the different PanOceanian Mulebot models as multifunctional and semi-autonomous land units. The need to develop its own model soon became apparent however; a model that could adapt itself to the Section’s tactical and logistical peculiarities. The Rebot model was taken as base for designing the new unit in order to reduce logistical and maintenance needs by using common spare parts and tools. The different work teams of the various employed contractors had to embark on a long and intense period of capacities testing following a process of careful refinement of the principle systems, before being able to validate the execution characteristics of the proposed design. The maximum and minimum performance margins are an important achievement that was determined from the very first design stages up to the large scale battery of tests for the hardware. This unit currently represents significant advances in vehicular design and embodies a new technical development strategy for covering high mobility, efficiency, deployment, and resistance requirements of the Section.

Nevertheless, the Probot, short for Prototype Robot, is still understood to be the first step in a new generation of multifunctional remote units. Possibilities for improving this Remote model are such that its own designers still consider it to be a production phase prototype. The future will probably surprise us with results from the investigation and development lines generated by the Probot.[1]


"Initially, ALEPH’s Special Situation Section used the various PanOceanian Mulebot models as their multifunctional semi-autonomous ground unit. However, it was soon obvious they needed to develop their own model, adapted to the tactical and logistic peculiarities of the Section. This new unit design was based on the Rebot model, allowing reduced logistic and maintenance loads due to the use of common spare parts and tools. Teams of contractors were involved in an intensive capability testing period, followed by a careful refinement process of all main systems, before they could achieve the desired goals of the design. Nowadays, this unit represents significant breakthroughs in vehicle design and embodies a new technical development strategy covering the high mobility, efficiency, deployment and survival needs of the Section. Nevertheless, the Probot, or Prototype Robot, is still seen as a first step in a new generation of multifunctional remote units. The possibilities for improving this Remote model are so extensive that its own designers still see it as a production prototype. The results of the Investigation and Development lines of technology generated by the Probot are expected to bear exceptional fruit in the future."
