An initial order valued at $374 thousand has been received under this contract with work to be completed by September 2016.

"iRobot values its long standing service to multiple agencies within the Department of Defense," said Tom Frost, senior vice president and general manager of iRobot's Defense & Security business unit. "Our family of robots are smart, light, rugged and easy to use. We take pride in the role they play to keep our service members safe, and we remain committed to ensuring the U.S. Navy's MTRS fleet is equipped with the latest in robotic technologies to combat threats that persist globally."
