Twin inventors develop firefighting robot

WATERBORO, Maine — Identical twin brothers Michael and Jeff Howe have developed a robot to help firefighters and emergency management personnel fight various types of fires. The duo, through their Waterboro, Maine company Howe and Howe Technologies Inc. , have developed Thermite, a robotic fire fighting machine.

The duo and the 25-40 employees (depending on the project) at Howe and Howe are currently working with several different outfits to complete the testing and integration of Thermite into the fire industry, co-founder Michael Howe told Mass High Tech.

“We are working with the Department of Homeland Security in developing the future of firefighting,” Howe said. “Really, it is designed to offer regional and municipal and emergency responders to fight a fire robotically.”
