Abstract:

USA Environmental, Inc., and Timberline Environmental Services, Inc., developed the Range Master, a remote controlled scraper with an integrated power screen, to excavate and sift the top 12 inches of heavily contaminated UXO sites. The Phase 1 effort demonstrated the manually operated Range Master at a controlled test site. The Phase 2 effort added system armor and the remote control systems. The Phase 2 Range Master was demonstrated at a live site at the Former Lowry Bombing and Gunnery Range FLBGR, Bomb Target 2 BT2 in Colorado. This report documents the Phase 2 development and demonstration activities and results.
