Black-I Robotics Creates LandShark to Sniff Out Bombs

front2_br1w.gif

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.

Regards,

Farrokh Attarzadeh, PhD
