Autonomous Appliqué

State-of-the-art robotic appliqué kits for unmanned vehicle navigation

Since 2004, Kairos Autonomi has been a pioneer in producing robotic appliqué kits. These simple, cost-effective, and interoperable products are designed to be retrofitted or “strapped-on” to any existing vehicle or vessel that has a steering wheel. Test and evaluation (T&E), training and range clearance professionals consistently choose Kairos products for unmanned navigation of ground vehicle or surface vessel platforms.

Kairos Autonomi products effectively create a fleet of optionally unmanned, tele-operation or semi-autonomous ground vehicles to handle a host of operations, such as:

  • Testing & Evaluation
  • Training Ranges
  • Moving Land Targets
  • Autonomous Mobility Appliqué Systems
  • Range Clearance
  • Research & Development
  • Logistics and Warfighter Support
  • Security (Border, Perimeter, Harbor)
  • Surveillance
  • Countermine Warfare
  • Convoy Lead / Follow
  • Route Reconnaissance

Pronto4™ Series Overview
The Pronto4 Series4 Vehicle Agnostic Autonomy System is the latest generation of the highly successful Pronto4 system. The standard Pronto4 Series4 (P4S4) system includes the following components:

  • Frame with up to 8 Utility Bays and Carrying Handles
  • Computer Module (end cap)
  • Services Module (end cap)
  • Steering Ring
  • 4 Utility Modules
  • Vehicle Integration Module (VIM)
  • Brake Actuator
  • Transmission Actuator
  • Throttle Actuator
  • Complete Cable Set
  • User’s Manual / Flip Charts / Tool Kit
  • Weight: 22 lbs. / 10 kg
  • Dimensions: 13.25 x 17.25 x 5 in
  • Power: 9-32 vdc
  • 100% conduction cooled
  • Mean Time To Replace/Repair: 30 minutes or less

The P4S4 has been developed using proven, existing technologies from earlier versions of the Pronto4 Series, while also incorporating additional capabilities requested by customers. The P4S4 utilizes a modular design with standards-based interfaces that are widely supported. This enables the P4S4 to achieve interoperability, upgradeability, vendor independence, maintainability, technology insertion, reusability, removal of obsolete modules and long-term supportability, as well as use open standards such as the Pronto Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (ProntoJAUS).

One of the first of its kind, the ProntoJAUS enables unique unmanned and robotic systems to communicate and operate with each other independent of design. The ProntoJAUS provides a common conceptualized view of all robotics regardless of each robot’s hardware or software. With this software, two unique robots are able to share messaging schemes and information for optimal interoperability.
