The BearCat EOD BombCat armored response vehicle from Lenco Industries, Inc., of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, is designed for explosive ordnance disposal and improvised explosive device disposal teams. Veteran explosives disposal experts helped design it for functionality and life-saving protection. The vehicle accommodates a large tactical robot that can be accessed using a fold-down ramp or deployed from a hydraulically controlled platform. An optional roof-mounted camera with high-intensity lighting can be raised up to 10 feet for enhanced visibility. Other options include a thermal-image camera, CBRNE equipment, and advanced communications sensors. The armored vehicles are built on heavy-duty commercial truck platforms to reduce maintenance costs.
