Bedford, Mass.-based iRobot Corp. (IRBT) has received a $7.6 million order from the U.S. Army for 50 of its 310 SUGV (Small Unmanned Ground Vehicle) tactical mobile robots and spare parts.

The 310 SUGV gathers situational awareness in dangerous environments, while keeping warfighters out of harm’s way. The robotic system weighs about 35 pounds, making it ideal for dismounted mobile operations. While the 310 SUGV has been used in theater primarily by explosive ordnance disposal teams, the robots in this order will also be used by combat engineers and Marines.
