Northrop Grumman has been awarded a 24-month contract by the UK Ministry of Defence’s Special Projects Search and Counter Measures team for in-service support of the CUTLASS Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) remotely controlled vehicle.

The work, which is a continuation of the existing in-service support contract for CUTLASS, will be carried out at Northrop Grumman’s Coventry facility where the company provides life cycle support for all of its EOD unmanned ground systems, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

CUTLASS was designed, developed and manufactured by Northrop Grumman in the UK, and includes advances in technology and performance and a range of features that provides state-of-the-art capabilities for national security and resilience applications.

“This contract will enable us to ensure that the CUTLASS continues to deliver EOD capabilities for the Armed Forces,” said Andrew Tyler, chief executive, Northrop Grumman Europe.
