FLIR continues robotics sustainment for US Army

27th January 2021 - 09:45 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Latest contract supports FLIR UGVs used in two programmes.

The US Army has placed an additional contract worth $30.1 million with FLIR Systems for continued sustainment of the Man Transportable Robotic System Increment II (MTRS Inc II) and Common Robotic System Heavy (CRS-H) ground robotics programmes.

This raises to $88 million the value of the existing IDIQ deal from the army for maintenance and sustainment activity across all FLIR unmanned ground systems, the company announced on 26 January.

This includes medium UGVs such as the Centaur EOD platform provided under MTRS Inc II in a deal worth more than $150 million. In addition to EOD missions, Centaur can be used to neutralise CBRN threats using attachable sensors and payloads.

The FLIR Kobra UGV (pictured) was chosen in November 2019 as the CRS-H platform for the US Army, in a five-year contract worth up to $109 million. FLIR will provide at least 350 of these UGVs for use by EOD teams.
