RE2, a Lawrenceville-based robotics company, was awarded $3 million from the Office of Naval Research to develop an underwater robotic hand. The hand will be a component of the STARFISH Program. STARFISH, or Strong Tactile Maritime hand for Feeling, Inspecting, Sensing and Handing, will be used to develop the underwater robotic hand to “locate, identify and neutralize” both hidden and visible explosive threats.
