QinetiQ North America has won orders worth $8.4 million to furnish its Talon small unmanned ground vehicle to the Czech Republic and Poland, the company said Nov. 26.
The military forces of the two countries will use the Talon robots for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) missions, the company said.
The $8.4M includes $1.6 million from the Czech Republic and $6.8M from Poland, the company said. The U.S. Navy is facilitating the transaction.
