Israeli unmanned ground vehicle manufacturer Roboteam has won an Italian government tender to supply it with 40 tactical ground robotic systems for an approximate $10 million.

Roboteam will team with Italian BMD Spa to supply the robotic platforms to the Carabinieri, the national gendarmerie of Italy, Globes reported Thursday.

This follows recent deals by Roboteam in Japan, Korea and other countries.

Roboteam's TIGR - Transportable Interoperatble Ground Robot was launched last year, and this is its first win in an open tender. The TIGR joins the company's list of robotic solutions that have already won a number of tenders worldwide and are in ongoing operational use.

TIGR handles suspicious packages, hazardous materials and intelligence gathering and weighs about 80 kg, enabling two fighters to lift it into any combat vehicle. Highly manueverable on all terrains and in all conditions, the TIGR is equipped with an advanced arm which has 6 degrees of freedom (DOF) and with high lifting capacities. The system also has advanced means of photography and observation (day/night/thermal vision) for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

A significant component of the system is the software and algorithms. These enable the system operator to perform advanced and complex operations on the battlefield, while using and managing an array of autonomous capabilities consisting of a number of platforms and sensors.
