Unmanned ground vehicles company Endeavor Robotics has received a $9.2 million order to deliver Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles (SUGVs) to the U.S. Marine Corps. Sourced through Federal Resources, this award follows a $15 million contract Endeavor received in 2017 to provide the Marines with SUGVs for a variety of missions.
The latest SUGVs being delivered to the Marine Corps come equipped with Endeavor Robotics’ uPoint Multi-Robot Control System. Through the integration of mesh networking radios and uPoint controllers, Marines can now control and observe multiple SUGV robot assets simultaneously to far greater ranges, said the company in a statement.
More than 1,300 SUGV robots have been fielded worldwide to domestic and international defense forces, law enforcement, and industrial clients.
The Endeavor Robotics uPoint Multi-Robot Control System consists of an Android-based, rugged, tablet controller and the Persistent Systems, MPU5 Radio network.
