National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST)
EPE is working with the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) to incorporate their international standard test methods for response robots into its innovation process. With a purpose-built test lane situated at EPE HQ in Brisbane, we are able to rapidly test and experiment in an environment that complies with specific NIST tests aligned to end user requirements.
CTTSO (Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office), US Department of Defence
EPE is actively investing in the development of its innovation culture by participating in key workshops such as the five day robotics workshop hosted at NASA last July. This workshop was jointly hosted by CTTSO and NASA with a focus on rapid development of robotics solutions to remotely conduct neutralisation of unexploded ordnance (UXO), improvised explosives and their precursors, and hazard devices containing chemical, biological, or radiological materials. Experience gained in workshops such as these is key to shaping and improving EPE’s innovation capability.
