Category: Contracts

BEDFORD, Mass. -- iRobot Corp., a leader in delivering robotic technology-based solutions, today announced it has received international orders totaling $4.4 million in the first quarter of 2011 for the delivery of 27 iRobot 510 PackBot tactical mobile robots and spare parts.

The iRobot 510 PackBot performs bomb disposal, reconnaissance and other dangerous missions for warfighters and first responders.

“Our allies recognize the life-saving benefits provided by our robots,” said Robert Moses, president of iRobot’s Government and Industrial Robots division. “The emerging international market provides an important growth opportunity for iRobot, and one in which we invested heavily in 2010. We think that over time, sales of the iRobot PackBot and Small Unmanned Ground Vehicle (SUGV) into this market could total 15 to 20 percent of our government and industrial product revenue.”

In 2010, iRobot’s Government and Industrial Robots division received international orders totaling $13.2 million. The company has delivered its government and industrial line of robots to more than 25 countries, seven of which were new customers last year.
