Maryland-based robotic platform developer Roboteam has received two orders for 75 Micro Tactical Ground Robots. The company said they have begun production and initial delivery of the systems, which will support U.S. and international military missions. 

The newest iteration of the robots are used for explosive ordnance disposal, chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear material and HAZMAT missions.

They are capable of climbing stairs with one operator able to control multiple robots at once.

“Our MTGR is used by specialized units as well as first responders who are the ‘tip of the spear’ in critical life-saving missions,” said Shahar Abuhazira, Roboteam CEO, in a news release. “Roboteam engineers have a direct line of communication with end users allowing us to quickly adapt production and provide the technology to meet their immediate needs.”
