FLIR Systems Joins the Exciting Sponsor Line-Up at the Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems

In recent news, The U.S. Army's heavy common ground robot has reached full-rate production, less than a year after FLIR Systems won the contract to deliver the system. Under the current order, FLIR is delivering 34 systems, however, if all options are exercised in the contract, the firm could deliver approximately 350 robots.

FLIR also provides the US Army with a medium-sized unmanned ground vehicle — the Man Transportable Robotic System Increment II. FLIR is delivering the Centaur UGV for that program as well as supplying the Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force with the same capability.

With this in mind, SMi Group are delighted to announce FLIR Systems have recently joined the exciting sponsor line-up at Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems, taking place virtually on the 12th and 13th April 2021 along with Domo Tactical Communications, Idan Drive, Rheinmetall Canada, Rowden Technologies, and Safran Group.

For those interested in attending it is £299 for military and government personnel and just £999 for commercial organisations. Register at

The two-day event will also host four presentations from the US Army, including the Futures Command and the Naval Special Warfare Directorate on how they plan to advance the US robotics portfolio.

  • Dr Robert Sadowski, Army Chief Roboticist (Robotics ST), US Army
  • Lieutenant Colonel Chris Orlowski, Product Manager Robotic Combat Vehicles, PEO Ground Combat Systems, US Army
  • Mr Ted Maciuba, Deputy Director, Robotics Requirements, Maneuver Capabilities Development Integration Directorate, Futures and Concepts Center, US Army Futures Command
