Boston Dynamics Inc. Receives Maximum $9,983,844 Modification Contract for the Legged Squad Support System
Sep 20 13
Boston Dynamics Inc. has been awarded a maximum $9,983,844 modification (P00018) to a cost-plus- fixed-fee contract (HR0011-10-C-0025) for the Legged Squad Support System (LS3) program. LS3 seeks to demonstrate that a legged robot can unburden dismounted squad members by carrying their gear, autonomously following them through rugged terrain, and interpreting verbal and visual commands. Within the general scope of work of Phase 2, the modification adds additional tasks to the contract for the development of an enhanced version of the LS3 system with increased reliability and usability, enhanced survivability against small arms fire and a quiet power supply to support stealthy tactical operations. Work will be performed in Waltham, Mass. The estimated completion date is March 31, 2015. Fiscal 2013 research and development funds are being obligated at time of award. The contracting activity is the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Arlington, Va.
