Leidos-Endeavor Robotics Team to Compete for Navy’s Bomb Disposal Program Increments 2 & 3

alliance partnership connectLeidos and Endeavor Robotics have forged a partnership to bid for increments two and three of the U.S. Navy’s Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robotic System program.

Tom Frost, president of Endeavor Robotics, said in a statement released Monday the company will combine its experience in ground robotics systems integration with Leidos’ resources and defense systems integration experience in support of the service branch’s AEODRS program.

Endeavor Robotics has also collaborated with OpenJAUS and Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory to unveil a test bed facility in Massachusetts built to support system integration work on the AEODRS program.

Frost noted that the new facility would help the Leidos-Endeavor Robotics team conduct functional reviews and assess capability modules as part of the Navy’s incremental approach to system integration of open architecture-based unmanned ground robotic systems.

Endeavor Robotics is the former defense business segment of iRobot and relaunched under its current brand in April under the new ownership of Arlington Capital Partners.
