US Marine Corps order additional Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles

Endeavor Robotics has received a $9.2 million order to deliver additional battle-proven Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles (SUGVs) to the US Marine Corps.

Sourced through Federal Resources, this latest DLA 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’ advanced uPoint® Multi-Robot Control System. uPoint sharply reduces operator training time by leveraging interoperable technology and familiar tablet-based user-interfaces.

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 than ever before.

Endeavor CEO Sean Bielat said: “We’re building on our previous efforts to help the Marine Corps 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. We’re proud to be a dedicated partner to the Marines.”
