iRobot Corp. received a $7.4 million order from the U.S. military for Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles (SUGV), which the company expects will be delivered by the end of June.

SUGV, a tactical mobile robot, gathers situational awareness in dangerous conditions for warfighters and public safety professionals.

iRobot and Boeing developed the SUGV family of unmanned ground vehicles under a strategic alliance that began in 2007.
