Abstract : Letterkenny Army Depot has targeted areas for potential automation in the intermediate term using robotics. Areas of consideration include the interface of a high technology end effector with a currently planned robotics system. The area in mind is the agricultural blast cleaning operation where planning efforts are directed at replacing the agricultural blast nozzle with a prototype cavitation water jet cleaning and effector. This paper briefly describes the current method of operation in these areas and plans and limitations for robotics applications.
