The HEC MAXXplus is the Robotic version of the MAXXv1.

The first version of the MAXX proved the concept and now HEC offers MAXXplus.
MAXXplus further enhances Version 1 with the addition of the
Robotics suite, improved chassis/tracks, a purpose built armor body, trailer
and the improved TURTLE+. HEC can also provide purpose built attachments
like a Mini-Rotar and/or sensor suites as chosen by US DoD NVESD HDP.


MAXXplus will see the operator working via remote control and a
wireless video system from a very small armored vehicle called Turtle. The
operator takes control of MAXX and can operate it visually and via CCTV
system at a minimum safety distance of 10 meters, which will protect them
against all known types of landmines.
The complete system, which includes:
MAXXplus, Turtle, trailer, maintenance kit and training, can reliably perform
a range of day by day tasks in humanitarian demining operations which range
of optional attachments. Additionally, HEC is replacing the factory soft
skin body with a new armor steel body. This armor incorporates some changes
that improve its suitability for Demining applications, threats and
