    Soldiers assigned to the 20th Support Command (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosives or CBRNE) maneuver the robotic arm of an advanced ground sample collection platform to collect and deposit a rock sample during a robotic test at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, Ind, Aug. 6. The robotic system, developed by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, is designed to allow operational forces to perform radiation reconnaissance and ground sampling missions after a nuclear detonation. The system features a robotic arm, radiation detectors, and a sample storage tray. It is able to collect vacuum, debris and swipe samples as well as measure area radiation levels.
