This file contains the basic structure slides with which to start building your presentation. Save your file.Open the Slides template in the same colour style (Blue_Slides or White_Slides). This template contains an overview of all the slides types available. Select the slide types you require and Copy them.Go to Slide Sorter View of your new presentation (the Work template), and Paste the slides into position. Whilst building your presentation you can add slides as required using this method.Placeholder slideTo be used at the beginning and end of presentations or during breaks.This slide remains on screen while the audience is settling and the speaker is being introduced.
2 New Technologies in the Fire World Use of robots in support of Fire & Rescue Operations:- Project G.H.O.S.TTitle slide with imageA Title slide must be used in all QinetiQ presentations.Try to make the Title of your presentation engaging.Keep the presentation Title brief using a maximum of 2 lines. When using a 2 line presentation Title, reduce the font size by 10 points to 44 points.All titles should have the first letter uppercase (capital) and the rest in lowercase.The only font that should be used in the presentation is TheSans Q5 Plain.All text should be left aligned, other than titles in diagrams and tables.A web reference can be added to this slide.If you are doing a dual branded presentation, insert the logo of the other company in the box provided.Title page imageAn interesting image that is appropriate to your presentation should be added to this slide as shown.When choosing your image make sure you select one that suits landscape and when cropped does not loose its meaning.Use the Crop tool from the picture toolbar to Crop you image to fit.Presentation by Mr Kenneth Pink MBE, C Eng, C Mar Eng, M IMechE, M IMarEST.

10 HAZMAT INCIDENT OPERATIONS:- The HAZMAT version of Talon can carry a number of sensorsOur G.H.O.S.TTalon is fitted with aZellweggerGas monitorThis alerts on detection of flammable atmospheres, low oxygen levels, detection of ammonia and chlorine.Future fits include a RADOS radiation survey monitor and a Smiths Chem/bio monitor.
11 POST INCIDENT OPERATIONS:- Respirex - Containment Bag for contaminated robotA Home Office approved supplier of body bags for CBRN operations has produced the worlds first?fully certificated Body Bagfor a contaminated robot.
12 BISON Remote Controlled Vehicle Project :- G.H.O.S.T.BISON Remote Controlled VehicleBISON RCV.Fitted with:-High Reach Arm.HYDRAULIC CUTTER,TIC,4 Colour Cameras,COFDM Digital Video,Fibre Link for Tunnel Ops.Tools Include:-4” Disc Cutter/GrinderElectric Drill & Hole SawDrop Nose Anchor systemCan Haul a 100Kg LoadCan haul fire hose and support fire fighting branch.Bison is used for gaining access, door opening, window smashing, lock cutting etc
13 Project :- G.H.O.S.T. OPERATIONS Bison RCV:-Gaining Access to a van containing gas cylindersThis task was completed by the BISON robot under the control of an operator located over 200mtrs away from the vehicle.
14 BISON & TALON RCV Project :- G.H.O.S.T. BISON & TALON RCV. These two RCVs work is pairs, the control room layout enables the pictures from each robot to be displayed together allowing their operators to see the views from the other. This gives the 3rd view necessary to give depth perception.In this clip the robots are required to open a ships ISO container which held10 tons of fireworks.(2 tons NEQ). We’ll see what happened later!
15 BISON RCV Project :- G.H.O.S.T. BISON RCV. Fitted with:- Special cylinder valve keyIs used to shut down flaming cylinders.It has been found that some valves/regulators leak gas after being heated.Three cylinder valve blocks have been found to be loose in the cylinder after the cylinders have been involved in fire.

20 Industrial Robots – BROKK90 BROKK90 medium weight demolition RCV:-Moving full weight gascylinder as part ofexperimental trial.While cylinders can not be moved due to their weight and potential hazardUsing RCVs to move cylinders MIGHT be acceptable. This allows the hazard to be moved away from rail lines and road links opening this up earlier than would normally be the case.The Brokk can move the largest gas cylinders used in the UK. (98kg).Video shows a training exercise.
21 BISON RCV Project :- G.H.O.S.T. 10 tons of fireworks inside A ships steel ISO container caught fire when thieves thought it would be a good idea to cut into the back of the container using a grinder.The resulting fire and numerous explosions lasted over 4 hours!As seen the robots opened the door of the container and can now be seen applying water to suppress the fire.Brigade followed this up with a high volume ground monitor once the explosions stopped.
22 Robots used as self deploying ground monitors 300 Tons of batteries on fire in a recyclingplant. Car batteries ejected by explosions!Steel framed industrial building with metalRoof.40,000 ltrs of water used on day onemost became contaminated run off.Building structure compromised anddeclared unsafe.Building over150mtrs long next to a carpetwarehouse!All smoke from fire verified as highly toxic.Robots entered by the loading dock inend of building and commenced firefighting operations inside the structurewith zero run off, air temp over 100°CRobots stayed inside the building forfour hours.In all three robots deployed into building.Incident took five days to resolve.
