U.S. Army awards contract to Remotec for UGVs
The U.S. Department of Defense has announced that Remotec, a business unit of Northrop Grumman, has won a $48 million for a contract for the reset, sustainment, maintenance and recap to support the overall sustainment actions of the Remotec family of robots.
Northrop Grumman Remotec was founded in 1980 to provide remote handling consultation to the nuclear industry, in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Through experience gained by supporting the nuclear industry, Northrop Grumman Remotec identified the opportunity to expand and apply our core competencies to meet robotic requirements outside of the nuclear field. This led to the purchase of Andros™ technology in 1986.
Since acquiring the Andros technology, Northrop Grumman Remotec has remained the industry leader in hazardous duty robotics by continually improving this technology to meet the ever-changing challenges our customers must respond to. The result is the rugged, highly reliable, proven technology demonstrated by the current Andros line offering the best combination of performance and value in the market.
