QinetiQ said JIEDDO made the $5.3 million order for the DR10 robot units after releasing an urgent operations needs statement for lightweight, throwable robots.
QinetiQ said it made its initial delivery within four weeks of the original award.
QinetiQ said that small military units, patrols and first responder teams may send the 10-pound unit into potential combat environments to assess situations remotely, before committing personnel.
QinetiQ designed the robot to provide surveillance and reconnaissance through multiple payloads, sensors and long-distance wireless connectivity. QinetiQ said additional add-ons could make the DR10 better suited for anti-IED missions.
QinetiQ said follow-on deliveries will continue into spring 2012 and include spare parts.
