Robotic Research Wins 2020 Cogswell Award for Security Excellence

Sponsored by Businesswire

Robotic Research LLC, a leading provider of autonomy software and robotic technology and solutions to federal and commercial customers, announced today it has received a 2020 Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award. This is an award presented by the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency for a company’s excellence in industrial security and defense. This is a prestigious honor bestowed on Department of Defense contractors, with only 61 of over 12,500 facilities receiving the award this year.

“We are honored to be recognized for our hard work and dedication to setting the excellence for industrial security,” said Alberto Lacaze, CEO of Robotic Research. “We also send a huge thank you and congratulations to our team, headed by Janet Hughes, for their outstanding work in establishing and maintaining a security program of the highest standards and for their dedication to sustaining these procedures and processes.”

Robotic Research provides navigation, autonomy and robotic solutions for various programs and customers across the military, defense and commercial industries. The company provides autonomous capabilities for commercial and military vehicles with its embedded AutoDrive® kit, allowing the vehicles to navigate complex pathways without GPS location. Robotic Research also provides warfighter localization sensor units, known as WarLoc®, to support forward-deployed U.S. military personnel in GPS-denied environments. Recently, the company unveiled Pegasus™, the first-of-its-kind family of transformable unmanned autonomous vehicles for branches of the Department of Defense and commercial arenas.

The Cogswell Award was established in 1966 and focuses on principles of industrial security excellence. Factors include establishing and maintaining a security program that far exceeds the basic National Industrial Security Program requirements and providing leadership to cleared facilities in establishing best practices while maintaining the highest standards for security.

In the past, the awards have been presented at the annual Society of Industrial Security Professionals training seminar. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the award winners will be recognized in a virtual ceremony at a later date.
