NBC Reconnaissance

    This payload is implemented
on the MUNTRA-N UGV, which
is meant for unmanned NBC
reconnaissance operations. The
NBC reconnaissance payload is
mounted on the MUNTRA-N
and is teleoperated from the
base vehicle MUNTRA-B, and is
intended to carry out unmanned
reconnaissance missions in NBC
contaminated areas. The primary
NBC detectors are the nuclear
radiation detector, a Chemical
Warfare Agent/Toxic Industrial
Chemical (CWA/TIC) detector and
a Biological Agent (BA) detector.

    The full range of the collected
NBC data is transmitted to the
base vehicle MUNTRA-B, where
it is displayed for the information
of the operator. The MUNTRA-N
was successfully trial evaluated at
MFFR during summer of 2014.
