iRobot has received an order of $4 million from the US Navy for the company’s model 110 FirstLook robots and accessories.

The iRobot 110 FirstLook provides immediate situational awareness, performs persistent observation and investigates and manipulates dangerous and hazardous materials.

In addition, iRobot 110 FirstLook can be equipped with a small Lightweight Manipulator to interact with the environment.

Earlier, iRobot has delivered more than 5,000 of its defense and security robots to military and civil defense forces worldwide.

“FirstLook is light enough and rugged enough to be thrown through a window or down a flight of stairs, and its capabilities are expandable with the addition of different payloads,” said Tom Frost, senior vice president and general manager of iRobot’s Defense & Security business unit.

Few days ago, iRobot received an order of $9.8 million from the US Marine Corps Systems Command for 75 Small Unmanned Groud Vehicles (SUGV) robot systems.
