Teledyne FLIR’s unmanned ground systems division has received a $62.1 million firm-fixed-price contract from the U.S. Army to provide robotic systems that assist in locating and discarding unexploded ordnance and improvised explosive devices.
The Department of Defense said Wednesday work on the Army’s Man Transportable Robotic System Increment II program will approximately run through Oct. 2, 2023.
The company has been providing the service branch with medium-sized robots. Its unmanned ground vehicle Centaur units were delivered to the military in support of the program.
Each order given under the new contract will determine funding and work locations.
A total of five parties submitted tenders for the competitive procurement process. Army Contracting Command awarded the contract.
