InnoVfoam Robotic Firefighter
Milrem Robotics partnered with InnoVfoam, the specialist in foam extinguishing technology, to develop robotic firefighting systems that can assist or even replace firefighters in the most dangerous environments. Their first project combines Milrem Robotics’ unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) Multiscope Rescue with InnoVfoam’s various firefighting systems, specifically foam proportioning systems and fire monitors.

These firefighting robots will be able to be remotely controlled by actual firefighters who remain at a safe distance, all the while receiving a complete overview of the operation area using various cameras (i.e. thermal and infrared). Sensors onboard the robot can also detect gas or chemical leaks.

In addition to fires in urban environments there are large scale forest and landscape fires every year that endanger the environment, the lives of inhabitants and especially firefighters. The systems we are developing with InnoVfoam can alleviate dangers firefighters face and help contain fires faster,” said Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics.
