Army Selects QinetiQ NA for $152M Unmanned Ground Robot Production Contract

QinetiQ North America has won a $152M initial contract to manufacture small unmanned ground robots for the U.S. Army’s Common Robotic System – Individual program, Defense News reported Thursday.

A statement from Fort Benning in Georgia noted that the contract’s value may increase to $400M through follow-on awards and options.

The Army sought a ground-based robotic technology that weighs less than 25 pounds and can operate remotely via a universal controller designed to direct unmanned air and ground systems.

The system is designed to carry a range of payloads and employ an open architecture to accommodate future modifications.

QinteiQ NA and Endeavor Robotics separately developed robotic systems under the CRS-I program’s engineering and manufacturing development phase through a $429.1M contract awarded in April 2018.

The Army aims to field initial CRS-I systems in fiscal 2020.
