Roboteam has received an initial purchase order to deliver more than 130 of its Micro Tactical Ground Robot (MTGR) systems to the United States Marine Corps.

This initial purchase will be part of a larger order of additional ground robots to follow, totaling approximately $30 million. It was received through collaboration with Roboteam’s U.S. partner, Mistral Inc. 

Roboteam is a leading developer of tactical unmanned platforms for defense and security operations, and will supply a total of approximately 200 units of its MTGR to the U.S. Marine Corps, along with spare parts and maintenance services. 

The MTGR is a highly maneuverable, lightweight, and man-portable robotic platform. Its robust design and agile mobility, including advanced capabilities such as stair- climbing and self-righting, excel in both indoor and outdoor terrains. 

Whether deployed as robots for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) missions, special operations, or tactical maneuvers, the MTGR’s impressive performance and adaptability ensure superiority in navigating and overcoming field challenges.

In addition to the MTGR, Roboteams combat-proven family of robotic systems (ranging from 1.5 kg up to 1.2 tons) has a track record of successful deployments of thousands of systems by Tier-1 defense and law enforcement customers in over 30 countries. 

Powered by cutting-edge software and algorithms, Roboteam’s platforms leverage MESH communication technology, streamlining transmission through a singular network. This innovative approach enables centralized control via a single control unit, empowering operators to seamlessly manage multiple systems with unparalleled ease.

Manufacturing is being conducted locally in the U.S with final assembly at Mistral’s White Marsh production facility. Roboteam has already provided the first batch of MTGR systems to the US Marine Corps and aims to complete the delivery by the first quarter of 2025. 

Matan Shirvi, Roboteam CEO, said; “We are honored that the US Marine Corps has selected the MTGR to enhance their arsenal of combat engineering robotics. Proudly selected by Tier-1 customers globally, our unmanned platforms empower defense forces to execute missions efficiently while prioritizing soldier safety. 

“We have customized the MTGR to meet the U.S, Marine Corp’s operational needs, enabling them to maintain unmatched battlefield supremacy while enhancing their daily operational capabilities.”
