Endeavor receives follow-on SUGV order

21st March 2018 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Endeavor Robotics has received a $9.2 million order from the US Marine Corps (USMC) to deliver additional Small UGVs (SUGVs), the company announced on 15 March.

The latest model SUGV will be equipped with Endeavor’s advanced uPoint multi-UGV control system. uPoint helps in reducing operator training time by leveraging interoperable technology and tablet-based user-interfaces. Through the integration of mesh networking radios and uPoint controllers, users can control and observe multiple SUGV assets simultaneously at greater ranges.

The SUGV is rugged, back-packable, easily deployable and weighs less than 30lbs. It can operate in all environments, climb and descend stairs and can be fitted with multiple sensors and accessories for added capabilities.

Sean Bielat, CEO, Endeavor, said: ‘We are building on our previous efforts to help the USMC take another step in their plan to broadly field advanced SUGVs capable of meeting a range of threats in multiple environments.

‘Every one of our rugged, combat-tested robots places one more marine, one more squad of marines, in a safe position to deal with battlefield threats. Endeavor is relentlessly focused on developing, sustaining and advancing life-saving robot technologies.’
