Army Taps QinetiQ North America, Endeavor for $429M Robotic System EMD Contract

The U.S. Army has awarded Endeavor Robotics and QinetiQ North America spots on a potential nine-year, $429.1 million contract to engineer, manufacture and develop robotic systems.

The Army Contracting Command received three bids for the EMD contract in support of the Common Robotic System (Individual) program, the Defense Department said Friday.

CRS(I) is a robotic platform consists of an operator control unit, mobility component and payloads designed to help warfighters detect and counter threats as well as perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and other dismounted operations.

The robotic system will have payload variants that include a manipulator arm, ISR camera and components for chemical, biological, radiation and nuclear detection and explosive ordnance disposal.

Each company will build under the 10-month EMD phase two run-off robotic systems for the service to test and review.

The contractors will also produce seven CRS(I) systems and eight representative platforms to back government testing efforts as well as provide support for early security control evaluation, system interoperability conformance assessment and cyber tests during the EMD phase.

The service branch will change the contract from multiple award to single award once it selects the contractor for the low-rate initial production phase following the review of run-off test results.

Work will run through Feb. 2, 2027.
