Lenco Industries, Inc., has introduced the BearCat EOD "BombCat" armored response vehicle for EOD and IEDD first responders.

The Lenco BombCat has been designed with input from veteran explosive ordinance disposal experts, according to the company.

In addition to technicians, the BombCat accommodates a large tactical robot like the Andros F6A that can be readily accessed using a fold-down ramp at the curb side door or deployed from a hydraulically controlled platform at the front of the vehicle.

The BombCat's spool storage reel manages the robot's fiber-optic cable while technicians monitor progress via computer monitors from the safety of the vehicle's interior. Secure radio signals can also be utilized to transmit robot audio and video feeds.

The BombCat also comes equipped with an optional roof-mounted, 24X zoom camera with high-intensity scene lighting that can be raised up to 10 feet for enhanced visibility. A thermal image camera, CBRNE equipment, and advanced communications sensors are also available to meet operator needs.

The BombCat models are built on heavy-duty commercial truck platforms, which allow up keep and repairs to be performed at OEM dealers and truck centers greatly reducing maintenance costs versus other specialized vehicles, according to Lenco.
