USMC to Acquire MTGR Robits from Roboteam

Our Bureau - : Jun 12, 2024 - : 8:32 pm

Israel based Roboteam, a leading developer and manufacturer of tactical unmanned platforms for defence and security missions, has announced today an initial purchase order from the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to deliver to the more than 130 of its Micro Tactical Ground Robot (MTGR) systems. Roboteam has already provided the first batch of MTGR systems to the US Marine Corps and aims to complete the delivery by the first quarter of 2025.

The Israeli firm said that this would be part of a larger order of additional robots to follow, totaling approximately US$30 million. The purchase order was received through collaboration with Roboteam’s U.S. partner, Mistral Inc. Roboteam will supply a total of approximately 200 units of its MTGR to the U.S. Marine Corps, along with spare parts and maintenance services. Manufacturing is being conducted locally in the U.S with final assembly at Mistral’s White Marsh production facility.

“We are honored that the US Marine Corps has selected the MTGR to enhance their arsenal of combat engineering robotics. Proudly selected by Tier-1 customers globally, our unmanned platforms empower defense forces to execute missions efficiently while prioritizing soldier safety,” said Matan Shirvi, Roboteam CEO. “We have customized the MTGR to meet the U.S, Marine Corp’s operational needs, enabling them to maintain unmatched battlefield supremacy while enhancing their daily operational capabilities. We are delighted to collaborate with Mistral to bring this advanced robotic solution to the US Marine Corps, reaffirming our commitment to providing innovative solutions tailored to the demands of modern warfare.”

The US Air Force has previously procured hundreds of MTGR systems under a Programme of Record valued at over US$25 million, demonstrating the MTGRs’ efficacy through successful deployment and operational performance. Notably, the current contract represents a significant advancement as the first penetration into the US Marine Corps market, with potential for future orders.

The MTGR is a highly maneuverable, lightweight, and man-portable robotic platform. Its robust design and agile mobility, including advanced capabilities such as stair-climbing and self-righting, excel in both indoor and outdoor terrains. Whether deployed for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) missions, special operations, or tactical maneuvers, the MTGR’s unparalleled performance and adaptability ensure superiority in navigating and overcoming field challenges.
