Percussive Excavation Digging Tool
Honeybee Robotics’ Percussive Excavation Digging Tool provides lightweight robotic platforms with effective excavation capabilities, far greater than their weight would otherwise allow. The Digging Tool breaks through tough soils using a patent-pending percussive method, making better use of available downforce and multiplying a platform’s ability to dig. It provides orders magnitude improvement over traditional push-shovels and rakes.
Developed to help combat the use of buried improvised explosive devices, the Digging Tool has many applications where a small platform needs to break through tough materials such as compacted soils, sun-baked clay, vegetation. Faster, tougher, lighter: it embodies Honeybee’s approach to unmanned tactical systems.
