The Supervised Autonomy to Neutralize and Detect IEDs (SANDI) Phase II is being developed for the U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) by prime contractor General Dynamics Robotic Systems (GDRS). ILS-INC is a first-tier subcontractor for this phase of the program.
SANDI consists of a robotic vehicle, a vehicle-mounted Operator Control Unit (OCU), and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) defeat payloads. The SANDI was proposed to satisfy the requirement for a remotely-operated ground vehicle utilizing a roller to neutralize Victim Operated IEDs (VOIEDs) as identified by the Joint IED Defeat Organization (JIEDDO). SANDI provides an adaptable system for route clearance and maneuver force protection.
ILS-INC is responsible for reliability analysis, training package, operator manual, Continental United States (CONUS) training and evaluation support, CONUS field support,Outside Continental United States (OCONUS) installation support, as well as OCONUS training support.
