AIR TRANSPORTABLE CONTAINER DEMINING ROBOT WORKSHOP

BACKGROUND

As part of the creation of a demining and area clearance robot known as the SDZ (Zone Demining System) for the DGA, a shelter workshop was required for storing all the robot’s tools and carrying out primary maintenance.

CHALLENGE

Our client wanted an air-transportable container for transporting all equipment required—by land, sea and air—for rapid deployment of the demining robot.

OUR EXPERTISE

Zhendre carried out the design of the air-transportable workshop container while integrating the constraints of the different equipment necessary for the area clearance system.

This design was then checked against numerical calculations to ensure the resistance of the assembly to various stresses, particularly those related to air transport.

Finally, we verified the workshop container’s suitability for stowage in transport aircraft used by the French Army: the C130 and A400M.
