BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS (BNS): iRobot Corp has received a $14.1 million order from the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA).

This first order under a recently announced $230 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract calls for delivery of 86 Man Transportable Robotic System (MTRS) MK 1 Mod 1 robots, spare parts and accessories.

MTRS MK 1 Mod 1 is modeled after the iRobot 510 PackBot. The company expects to complete delivery of these robots by the end of the second quarter.

“PackBot continues to keep our troops safer on the battlefield, and we are pleased that the Navy will be providing more of these robots to our troops,” said Robert Moses, president of iRobot’s Government and Industrial Robots division.

More than 4,000 have been delivered to military and civil defense forces worldwide, successfully performing search, reconnaissance, bomb disposal and other dangerous missions, the company said.
