FLIR receives orders for Centaur ground robots

​Speaking of wheeled or tracked robots, FLIR Systems Inc. reported this month that it has received $70 million worth of orders from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps for 600 of its Centaur unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) and supporting equipment. The Army has also awarded the Arlington, Va.-based company a $31.6 million contract increase for its Man Transportable Robot System (MTRS) Increment II. The remotely controlled Centaur helps EOD teams with hazardous sensing tasks and provides standoff capabilities. FLIR bought Endeavor Robotics for $385 million in 2019, and in January, Teledyne acquired FLIR for $8 billion in one of the largest robotics deals so far this year.
