Scientific and technical services provider to the Jordanian Armed Forces, King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) displayed its new land and aerial vehicles at this year's Defence Systems & Equipment International (DSEi 2009) exhibition in London.

At the show KADDB exhibited its new unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) armed with rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launchers.

The UGV is a six-wheeled tele-operated ground vehicle with payload of 70kg and is driven remotely at up to 1km range.

The applications of the vehicle include reconnaissance, border surveillance, fire fighting, anti-terrorism and mine detection.

In addition, the company also displayed its new Quadrotor helicopter, which can be used as relay platform for real-time transfer of video imagery from an aircraft to a ground station.

The Quadrotor which can carry explosives is a small aerial system that is difficult to detect and has a maximum operating altitude of 50m, operating range of 300m and endurance of ten minutes.
