New Andros™ Spartan EOD Robot Announced
HERNDON, VA – March 18, 2021 – Peraton is proud to welcome new subsidiary Peraton Remotec, the global leader in mobile robot systems for hazardous duty operations, and to introduce Peraton Remotec’s most advanced platform yet, the Andros™ Spartan Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) System.
Remotec, Inc., now branded as Peraton Remotec, was acquired through the recent purchase of Northrop Grumman’s integrated mission support and IT solutions business.
For more than three decades, military, law enforcement, and other first responders worldwide have relied on Peraton Remotec robots to help assure a safe, successful outcome for their most challenging missions. Peraton Remotec offers the widest range of Unmanned Ground Vehicles and accessories in the market, with a worldwide installed base of over 2,300 vehicles.
“Peraton Remotec’s industry-leading track record in unmanned ground vehicles complements Peraton’s 25 years of experience serving government customers operating in the unmanned surface, underwater and ground domains,” said John Coleman, President, Global Defense & Security sector. “We look forward to building on the synergies to meet future unmanned system needs while continuing to innovate on behalf of our loyal customers in the military, law enforcement and the broader first responder community.”
The successful integration of Peraton Remotec further signifies Peraton’s company-wide commitment to serve customer’s missions of consequence, where failure is not an option.
Peraton Remotec designed Andros Spartan based on the success, reliability and versatility of the Andros™ F6 series of platforms. Andros Spartan incorporates the proven chassis design of the Andros F6 series and adopts the highly dexterous manipulation capabilities of the Andros™ FX. The new arm design allows more lift capacity and greater dexterity by adding a roll joint that provides eight degrees of freedom.
