The company's ability to simultaneously manage multiple renewable energy sources allows RBTI powered solutions to stay up and running longer than the competition. Mobility is another differentiating aspect of RBTI solutions. The company also offers a unique set of security products for military and law enforcement applications where cost/performance represents a critical selection factor. The application areas include Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) robots, vehicular inspection and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).

The robotic solutions cover a broad range of capability and price ranges to meet the customer need.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

UAVs represent the most complex and highly configurable security solutions available from Red Branch. Surveillance is the primary application and exceptional cost performance is their major competitive edge. The company has several aerial platforms but it features the Long Star.

Market Summary

RBTI has a unique focus on emerging markets for security-related solutions that require mobility and sustainable power. RBTI's solutions encompass military, civilian and humanitarian applications.

All these represent high growth markets both domestically in the U.S. and U.S. spending on Home Land Security (HLS) is estimated at $50 billion this year (the federal spend comprises $44 billion) and Frost and Sullivan projects a $300 billion worldwide HLS market by 2016.

Mobility represents a key factor for rapid response to the kind of threats anticipated in the future. This includes natural disasters, terrorist strikes, and special event coverage. RBTI feels that focusing on mobility gives it differentiation to participate as a niche player in a rapidly growing sector of the HLS market.

The use of sustainable power represents another differentiating aspect of many RBTI mobile solutions. Extended deployment represents a key factor for RBTI's use of sustainable energy sources. Combining solar, wind, fuel cell and battery technologies meet the operational needs of the both the military and HLS markets where self-powered, minimized fossil fuel consumption, and time-on-station are key selection factors. RBTI has chosen to focus on energy management of multiple power sources as its key differentiating characteristic and greatest market advantage.

RBTI has a special focus on clean-water solutions. Rapid response to the events like hurricanes Katrina and Ike and the flooding in the mid-west point out the need for mobile clean water solutions. The same applies to forward operating bases needed by the military and the humanitarian needs for clean water in emerging countries. Working with our partner Biomimix ( RBTI has exclusive rights to its innovative Medusa product for mobile, clean water solutions. While hard to quantify today, we know that the tactical need for clean water is a rapidly emerging market in excess of $10 billion today.
