Pakistan to Buy QinetiQ NA’s Anti-IED Robot; Andy Rogers Comments

qinetiqPakistan will purchase $7.8 million worth of QinetiQ North America-built explosive ordnance disposal robots under an order managed by the U.S. Navy.

More than 4,000 of the TALON robots are used daily to identify improvised explosive devices and to support police and HAZMAT operations in the U.S. and worldwide, QNA said Monday.

Andy Rogers, executive vice president and general manager of QNA’s technology solutions business, said the company builds TALON robots to protect people and assets, as well as to help warfighters identify threats they cannot see.

U.S. military TALON robots in Iraq and Afghanistan are each blown up an average of 13 times 13 times and are designed to complete thousands of missions in their lifetimes, the company says.
