iRobot continues to ship PackBots to US Military

iRobot announced another order from the US military. This time the robot company got a $7.8 million order for 90 iRobot PackBot 510 with FasTac Kit robots and spare parts.
This is the ninth order under the $286 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) xBot contract, bringing the current total contract value to approximately $80 million.

iRobot would have to sell a lot of their cleaning consumer robots to reach that order volume.
The PackBot 510 with FasTac Kit, employed in both Iraq and Afghanistan, was developed for reconnaissance missions and to identify roadside bombs, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and other unexploded ordnance. Overall iRobot has delivered more than 2,200 PackBot robots already. iRobot unveiled the PackBot 510 in 2007.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
