When it comes to careers in the military, serving as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) specialist is especially risky.
EOD specialists are responsible for dealing with bombs, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and chemical, biological and even nuclear weapons, putting their lives on the line to ensure weaponry is disposed of properly. Since the 1970s, EODs have accomplished this from a small distance by operating robots that have a bulky user-interface and lack effective dexterity.
What if EODs could complete this job more effectively, and without any personal risk? At the Human Fusions Institute, we believe our NeuroReality™ technology can make EOD specialists more effective and efficient.
Using wireless sensory detection capabilities, we can link robots directly to a specialist’s nervous system, allowing any trained technician—including amputee soldiers—to diffuse EODs from a distance while having bi-directional tactical feedback. In other words, the EOD specialist on the job will not only be able to get audio-visual feedback from the robot, but can also respond in real-time to changes in pressure, temperature, flexibility and more as they manipulate explosive weaponry.
Our technology will enable more efficient bomb disposal, thereby reducing soldier and civilian casualties. It will also enable amputees who have been implanted with the NeuroReality™ neural interface to use those implants to remotely connect with EOD robots, helping them to return to active duty.
