L3Harris Robots to Help Protect US Air Force Bases Around the World
The U.S. Air Force has chosen L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) robots to help protect its bases around the world.
The Air Force awarded L3Harris a 10-year, $85-million, IDIQ contract to produce up to 170 T7™ robots to replace its existing 20-year-old Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) system, which mitigates explosive threats at bases. The contract includes robots, robotics support, maintenance and training, with initial deliveries scheduled in 2022.
“The T7 is setting the new standard for large EOD robots and has received outstanding technical and usability ratings from the Air Force,” said Ed Zoiss, President, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris. “This award highlights our ongoing technology investment and positions L3Harris as the premier supplier of large EOD robots.”
The contract follows L3Harris’ successful delivery of Project STARTER to the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), which replaced the MOD’s aging fleet of EOD robots with 122 T7 robots.
The L3Harris family of robots, including the T7 and its equally capable medium-sized counterpart, the T4™, will be demonstrated at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) conference in London Sept. 14-17 and the Association of the US Army (AUSA) conference in Washington, DC in October.
