Comet is a co-developer and Strategic Business Development Consultant on the US Army ARIBO program. ARIBO is simple and groundbreaking. It is a pilot program where ground mobile robots are piloted at military bases to prove they work and are a valuable operational tool. ARIBO pilots combine collaborative research and development with business case validation. They put robotic systems to work and to the test of daily use (and abuse). If the robotic systems pass the test of the pilot, new markets are formed with reliable products and excited customers. The time has come for expansion and the Comet team is expanding the ARIBO model beyond the military bases.
