"We are honored to win and look forward to delivering a great robot to the US Army," Endeavor Robotics CEO Sean Bielat says.

The program, MTRS Inc. II, called for bids to build medium-weight, remotely operated, man-transportable robotic systems that provide increased stand-off capability for the American warfighter. The primary use for the UGVs will be to detect and confirm potentially lethal threats, such as IEDs, chemical hazards and other biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) situations.

Having won a variety of new contracts over the last several months, including MTRS Inc. II, Endeavor Robotics will create many new jobs, hiring roboticists, engineers and support staff. The majority of new positions will be housed in Endeavor's Boston area facility.

"This large increase in staff creates a nice boost for the local and American economy," says Bielat. "We are full of pride today and we can't wait to get started."
