The estimated size of the market for EOD and surveillance robots used in Australian law enforcement is in excess of $20 million.
The contract includes maintenance component which will provide valuable recurring revenue.
Potential exists for further contract wins as most robots used by Australian law enforcement agencies will need to be replaced and/or upgraded in the near future.
