Northrop Grumman has received a 24-month contract from the UK Ministry of Defence's Special Projects Search and Counter Measures team for in-service support of the CUTLASS explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) UGV, the company announced on 25 September.

The deal is a continuation of the existing in-service support contract for CUTLASS.

Designed, developed and manufactured by Northrop Grumman, CUTLASS includes significant developments in technology and performance that provide advanced capabilities for national security and resilience applications.

Andrew Tyler, chief executive, Northrop Grumman Europe, said: ‘Our CUTLASS vehicle has set new standards for UGVs since it was first introduced, significantly enhancing the ability of users to handle hazardous threats safely.

‘The vehicle is in service across the UK and has proven itself to be robust and capable in the most demanding environments. This contract will enable us to ensure that the CUTLASS continues to deliver EOD capabilities for the armed forces.’
