Telerob, an AeroVironment Company, Receives Multi-Million Dollar UGV Order from Latvian MoD

  • Order includes tEODor EVO and telemax EVO HYBRID unmanned ground vehicles for Latvian National Armed Forces
  • Telerob's advanced unmanned ground robotic solutions safely and effectively perform a variety of dangerous missions using specialized precision manipulators with autonomous functionality and intuitive user operation

AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV), a global leader in intelligent, multi-domain robotic systems, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Telerob Gesellschaft für Fernhantierungstechnik mbH (Telerob), received a multi-million dollar firm-fixed-price order from the Latvian Ministry of Defense (MoD). The order, received on July 8, 2021, encompasses the procurement of telemax™ EVO HYBRID and tEODor™ EVO unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) and engineering support to the Latvian National Armed Forces. Delivery is scheduled to be completed in late 2021.

“Every year, Latvian Explosive Ordnance Disposal forces neutralize ammunitions of various caliber rifles, artillery shells, minesweepers, aviation bombs and other explosive objects by the thousands,” said Brian Young, AeroVironment vice president and product line general manager of unmanned ground vehicles. “With the deployment of Telerob’s telemax EVO HYBRID and tEODor EVO UGVs, Latvian Explosive Ordnance Disposal units can continue to detect, identify, disarm and render safe explosive devices found throughout the territory of Latvia, as well as in international peacekeeping operations, and they can do so safely and efficiently from a greater standoff distance.”

The tEODor EVO is purpose-built for explosive ordnance disposal and disarming improvised explosive devices. The UGV features a 6-axis manipulator with telescopic reach, is heavy-lift capable (220 pounds/100 kilograms) and can precisely handle hazardous materials with a 12-inch (300 millimeter) gripper that features an integrated laser rangefinder, video input and data interface. Its dual-track drive system with independent high-torque motors allows it to traverse multiple gradients, high obstacles, or steep inclines.
