RE2, Inc. Named 2008 Army Small Business Innovation Research Achievement Award Winner

3rd December 2008 - 08:53 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


RE2, Inc., a leading developer of intelligent modular manipulation systems, announced today that it was named a 2008 Army Small Business Innovation Research Achievement Award winner. RE2 was selected based on the Company's Small Robot Toolkit (SRT) Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and innovation provided to the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC).

RE2 was one of ten companies selected out of a field of more than 755 Phase II SBIR performers. Eligible companies were evaluated based on four criteria: originality and innovation of research; relevance of the research to the Army mission; immediate commercialization potential of the research, reflecting the primary goal of bringing technology and products to the marketplace; and overall quality performance of the project.

RE2 was chosen based on the success and commercialization potential of its SRT Phase II SBIR. The SRT is a plug-n-play, interoperable robotic manipulator arm with interchangeable end-effector tools. The SRT provides the ability to quickly swap tools in the field, which greatly expands the functionality of existing robot platforms, improves mission efficiency, and reduces time-on-target for dangerous operations.

"It is an honor to have been selected to receive the Army SBIR Achievement Award in a year when so many companies are developing innovative and worthwhile technologies for our Soldiers," states Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO of RE2, Inc. "This award is further evidence that the Army recognizes the value and importance of intelligent modular manipulation systems for fielded and next-generation robots."
