The U.S. Department of Defense today announced a $11.4 million contract to Foster-Miller for MK 2 Man Transportable Robotic System series systems and Talon systems to Australia.

The services under this contract cover the production of systems, depot level repair parts, initial spares kits, consumables, repair parts and approved accessories.

The MTRS provides a stand-off capability to locate, identify and clear landmines, unexploded ordnance and improvised explosive devices. It can also be equipped with chemical or biological weapons sensors as a scanning device.

It is controlled by a remote handheld device and can be integrated with several platforms, allowing commanders to coordinate a larger search for threats.
