Black-I Robotics Creates LandShark to Sniff Out Bombs


Brian Hart lost his son in Iraq in 2005. Doing more than just grieving, he teamed with Richard Hart and and Arthur Berube to come up with Black-I Robotics and a series of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV robots) to go where humans should not. His LandShark can be programmed to plow up earth where a trip wire or explosive is hidden, or drop disrupters that sets off jets of water to disarm a bomb. Black-I is counting on the bot to be available next year with a hefty price of $65,000.00 to $85,000.00 a pop. When our tax dollars have to be used for war, we are all for them going this route.

Dear Brian Hart:

This morning I read about the loss of your son and your motivation to create the LandShark.

In 1985, during the first Gulf War, I have designed and prototyped a device called Land Mine Sweeper (LMS) using the technology available in those years.

The LMS is still sitting in my lab and I discuss the motivation behind its design to my senior design students every year.

I would like to get in touch with you to discuss my idea with you that may enhance the device you have designed.

My email address is FAttarzadeh@uh.edu and my phone number is (713)743-4078.
