InRob Tech Ltd. Completes Development of Remote Control System for D9 Bulldozer

InRob Ltd., a leader in the development and production of advanced wireless control systems and integrated solutions for unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), announced that it has completed the development of a remote control system for Caterpillar D9 bulldozers.

This system has been under development for more than one year and the company just received military approval to announce the results of the field trials. Several departments and divisions within the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) put InRob’s remotely controlled Caterpillar D9 to the most stringent of testing.

“This D9 bulldozer is now equipped with state-of-the-art remote control technology and is ready for military operations,’’ notes Ben Tsur Joseph, CEO of InRob Tech. “We faced monumental challenges in bringing to completion the development of the remote control system for the bulldozer. On a practical, business level, this is an outstanding opportunity, because we know that we have very few competitors in developing remote control systems for D9s. And now that we have passed all the military tests with flying colors, our plans are to bring this system to market as quickly as possible.’’

The Caterpillar D9 is a large track-type bulldozer, with an operating weight of 49 tons and works at 474 gross horsepower. Because of its size and durability, reliability and low operating costs, the D9 is one of the most popular track-type tractors in the world. Over the years, the IDF has made modifications to the D9 to enable its use under the most dangerous of military conditions.

InRob Tech’s remote control system for the D9 bulldozer, along with installation and maintenance, will carry a price tag of over $100,000 per system. Clearly, as the company reaches mass production levels, this will directly effect the sales price and will also bring about greater production efficiencies.
