In response to the hybrid warfare with the Russian Republic, industries across Ukraine were called to improve the warfighting capabilities of the Army by improving existing hardware and producing innovative concepts that could meet the current and future hybrid challenge. Remotely operated systems and capabilities were high on the agenda, with several remotely controlled weapon stations, turrets, and robotic ground vehicles.
Sand-X Motors has launched an unmanned version of its Tracked All-Terrain Vehicle (T-ATV 1200).
Rheinmetall Mission Master UGV (MMUGV) uses the 8x8 Avenger manufactured by Argo of Canada as a wheeled platform, designed to support troops on dismounted operations, providing logistic transport, surveillance, protection, medical evacuation, fire suppression, CBRN detection, and communication relay.
BAE Systems’ Ironclad UGV was unveiled at DSEI 2017. This tracked robot is designed to be small enough to negotiate tight urban environments and maintains the mobility needed for cross-country operation. It can be carried on a trailer or pickup truck or join other vehicles in a convoy.
With autonomous vehicles rapidly maturing and expected to become part of our daily life in five to ten years, it is only logical that military robotics will follow. But, according to Meir Shabtai, General Manager of Robotic Systems Division at Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), the military robots are already here now.
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has signed a collaboration agreement with robotics vehicle manufacturer DOK-ING D.O.O from Croatia, on the manufacturing, marketing and sales of robotic systems designed for high-risk operations in conditions affected by chemical, biological, radioactive explosive (CBRNE) materials.
Elsight received an initial order for ten Communications on the Move (COTM) secure, two-way communications suits from Automotive Robotic Industry (ARI), for integration in ARI's Amstaf Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV). Elsight's communications systems provide military-grade, secure and continuous two-way audio, video, and data transmissions, enabling safe and reliable remote operations of UGVs.
The event demonstrated collaboration of manned and unmanned vehicles conducting a combat mission. Among the unmanned assets included in the demonstration was an all terrain vehicle (ATV) modified with a landing plate on top, to operate a tethered multi rotor UAV and an aut0nomous mortar vehicle that provided direct and indirect fire support for the combat team, using the robots as fire observers, thus establishing a robotic 'hunter-killer' team.
Military robotics expert Roboteam is developing a hybrid air/ground drone robot system called ROOSTER, that mimics the flying of a male chicken. Its capability to fly over a short distance enables the Rooster to get around obstacles and reach vantage positions, like moving from a street to a rooftop in a short time.
Raytheon UK and Estonian UGV developer Milrem unveiled at Eurosatory an IED detection platform based in Raytheon UK GroundEye sensor system, integrated on the THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) developed by Milrem.
IAI is introducing the RoBattle, a new combat robot it has developed. A member of a growing family of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) that...
Singapore Technologies Kinetics is highlighting at the Singapore Airshow two unmanned ground vehicle systems (UGV) demonstrating robotics applications of combat systems - the Israeli Amstaff and Estonian TheMIS.
In the next 10 years about 30 percent of the Russian combat power will consist of remotely controlled and robotic platforms. Uran-9, unmanned BMP-3, obstacle breaching and demining flail robot are among the new systems covered here.
A new UGV introduced by the Estonian company MILREM made its international debut at DSEI 2015. The multipurpose robot was developed as a universal platform, supporting a wide range of military and first response applications.
