The US Navy has approved the Critical Design Review stage of its planned new high tech robot bomb disposal program, defense contractor Northrop Grumman announced in a press release.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A Critical Design Review is a multi-disciplined technical review within the acquisition process of the US armed forces to ensure that a system can proceed into testing and meet stated performance requirements within cost, schedule and risk.

"The US Navy and Northrop Grumman Corporation have successfully completed the Critical Design Review (CDR) for increment one of the Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robotic System (AEODRS) program," the release stated on Tuesday.

The AEODRS is a dismounted operations system designed for explosive disposal reconnaissance and threat assessment, the release explained.

"The CDR provided an in-depth assessment, by a government team of experts, managers and Navy and Marine Corps users, that the final design for the AEODRS dismounted operations variant is programmatically and technically realistic and achievable," the release noted.

The AEODRS program will create a family of unmanned ground vehicle systems with a high degree of interoperability for rapid integration of new technologies and the "back-packable" increment one system weighs less than 35 pounds, Northrop Grumman added.
