RE2 Robotics to Deliver Small Lightweight Manipulator Arms to iRobot
RE2 announced today that the Company received an order for $910,000 from iRobot Corp. (NASDAQ: IRBT) for Small Lightweight Manipulator (SLM) arms. The SLM arms will be integrated onto iRobot’s model 110 FirstLook® robots for the US Navy as part of an order that was previously announced by iRobot on August 19. The SLM is a mission-enhancing and modular payload developed and manufactured by RE2 enabling the FirstLook operator to easily manipulate and interact with the environment. The SLM robotic arm includes a mast camera which provides operators with a better vantage point for navigating, manipulating and inspecting.
“RE2 is proud to provide iRobot and the US Navy with the manipulator arm payload for their FirstLook robots,” stated Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO of RE2. “Our SLM arms are strong, yet lightweight, and are capable of performing manipulation and inspection tasks for a variety of missions.”
