Robots to extinguish fires near nuclear research facility in Sarov



EL-4 and EL-10 mobile robots were designed for reconnoitering, monitoring and extinguishing fires as well as removing obstructions to access the areas with fires during man-made accidents.

Another two MRK-RP robots were designed for reconnoitering via a television system, transporting and conducting operations to isolate fires and detect fires.

The LUF-60 mobile firefighting support unit will enable the firefighters to extinguish fires in those extremely dangerous areas that cannot be accessed by people. Apart from this, the unit can disperse smoke and ventilate the premises.
