We are starting the build process of a new chase vehicle designated, “RAMBO” (Research Ambulance). The purpose of this vehicle is to give us a mobile platform with which we can more effectively gather atmospheric data. The RAMBO will serve as a mobile command center outfitted with long range uav communication systems. Our goal is to design and construct a multipurpose vehicle capable of withstanding extreme conditions that accompany severe weather events, while maintaining a reliable connection with multiple sensor arrays.

 

The RAMBO is based on a retired 1999 Ford F-350 2wd dually ambulance. There are several steps that will be taken to transform the current vehicle into a resilient research vessel:

 

-4×4 conversion

-Engine/drive train upgrades

-Chassis/suspension

-Electrical/communication equipment

-Safety

 

All of the above aspects of the build will be covered in our news section.

Contact us to be apart of the build!
