The NHR multifunctional armoured robot chassis is a standard human replacement chassis appropriate for tasks using human designed tools in areas where additional protection is required such as search and rescue or security work. The robot chassis stands 1.75m tall to the top of its head, and the torso, legs and appendages are contoured to approximate standard human dimensions without any possibility of being mistaken for a human. The robot looks significantly stocky. The weight of the robot is higher than the normal human range although not significantly so. The basic sensor package is placed in the head in the same positions as humans, as is the voder, and the touch sensors are positioned across the chassis to enable the sensors to receive the same data as humans. The environmental sensor allows the robot a significantly better understanding of its surroundings.

The cargo space is in fact space for a robot brain up to 16 litre capacity flexible to the needs of the user. The interfaces present allow the users choice of brain to be reprogrammed with their programs of choice, and allow for the sensors to feed back directly to a computer via direct cable connection or via the radio. The power interface allows the robot to draw power from an external source to remove the need for refuelling or increase the duration of the internal fuel load as may be necessary.

The power-to-weight ratio takes into account the needs of the brain and all other equipment before applying the remaining power to the transmission. This configuration allows all equipment to be fully functional while the robot is moving at top speed.

Stated unloaded and loaded weights are exclusive of the weight of any brain or control points, as is the cost.

The CP requirement is normally provided by the Brain, however 11 Slave CPs can be installed as well.
