Thermite RS1-T2 is a squat modular robot on tank treads, designed by Howe and Howe Technologies of Waterboro, Maine. Being based on technology developed for the U.S. Army, this mighty fire fighting machine provides crews with a means for remote reconnaissance and fighting fire in hazardous areas, such as aircraft fires, refineries, chemical plants or nuclear reactors. The Thermite is smoke, fume and fatigue resistant, the factors which cause major deaths in fire fighting; it features remote control and can be operated from up to a quarter of a mile (400 m) away. Due to its relatively small size, the robot is easy to transport in city traffic – especially when using the company’s Bulldog fire fighting truck designed to carry a pair of Thermites or similar sized robots. Its 25 bhp (18.64 kW) diesel engine can bring up to 1,270 pounds (576 kg) and its steel and aircraft-grade aluminum construction help it to traverse rugged of terrain and provide reconnaissance. The Thermite comes from the Howe and Howe RS-1 Base, a robot platform that can also be fitted with a robotic arm or cameras for reconnaissance, or configured as a bulldozer.
