HISTORY
Mel Torrie, president and CEO of Autonomous Solutions, along with his team of engineers, developed the first version of Chaos in 2000 as part of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant. Chaos was designed to merge the best features of other EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) robots with a highly durable, mobile platform that could maneuver through extremely rough terrain. Since 2000, Chaos has undergone five major revisions and now has the capability to carry a variety of robotic or surveillance payloads.
