Milrem Robotics will provide the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) with two unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs).
The two examples of the Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System (THeMIS) will be used for testing.
DSTL will use the UGVs to explore the capabilities and limitations of these autonomous systems in areas such as mobility, vulnerability and security.
The Estonia based firm is supplying the UGVs in collaboration with QinetiQ.
The latter will integrate the autonomous functions into the UGVs and organise the transfer to the end user.
THeMIS has also been procured by procurement authorities in the Netherlands, Norway and Germany for testing purposes.
France, the USA and Indonesia have received THeMIS in a configuration for logistics.
The autonomous ground vehicles can also be equipped with weapons.
