Endeavor Robotics Wins Its Third Major Contract in Six Weeks with the United States Government

Massachusetts-based robotics company to deliver 75 'throwable' robots widely used by military and law enforcement personnel

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Endeavor Robotics, the U.S.-based global leader in tactical ground robotics, has been awarded a contract for 75 FirstLook robots from the United States Government for immediate operational use. This marks the company's third major contract win in the past six weeks.


FirstLook robots are widely fielded worldwide across multiple sectors, including military, law enforcement and the energy industry. The five-pound 'throwable' robot can be dropped 15-feet onto concrete without sustaining injury. The day/night cameras and two-way audio provide the user with immediate awareness of their surroundings. FirstLooks are often used in assessing dangerous situations, clearing buildings, and detecting IEDs. The robots can climb up to seven inches and can 'self-right' when flipped over.

The remote controlled FirstLook acts as 'eyes and ears' allowing the human operator to increase their stand-off distance from potential threats. To view the FirstLook in motion visit here.

"FirstLook is the most preferred lightweight reconnaissance robot in its class because of how easily and quickly it can be deployed while withstanding the abuse of ground operations," says Tom Frost, Endeavor Robotics President. "It gives me great pride to know that we are doing our part each and every day to reduce human exposure to potentially lethal situations."
