DRS Technologies Inc., a Leonardo-Finmeccanica Company, announced today that it has signed a strategic teaming agreement with Roboteam Ltd. to develop a solution for the U.S. Army's emerging Common Robotic System – Individual (CRS-I) program.
This alliance combines Roboteam's technologies and expertise in Military robotics with DRS's market presence, customer awareness, platform systems engineering, and production capabilities.
"We are excited to work with Roboteam to offer our customer a world-class robotic solution that provides dismounted troops with a superior capability to detect and mitigate threats," said Joseph Matteoni, vice president and general manager of DRS Sustainment Systems, Inc.
The CRS-I will provide the dismounted warfighter with the capability to conduct lower-level reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition; to remotely perform chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear detection; to remotely clear danger areas and conduct explosive obstacle counter measure operations; and conduct explosive ordnance disposal operations from a standoff distance.
