Milrem Robotics has signed a distribution and maintenance agreement with XTEK Ltd. The leading robotics and autonomous systems developer has also delivered the first THeMIS UGV to the Australian homeland security specialist for trial, evaluation, and demonstration purposes. Including Australia, the THeMIS UGV has been acquired by 11 countries, including:
- The Netherlands
- The UK
- The US.
Following the signing of an MoU in the end of last year, Milrem Robotics also signed an agreement with XTEK appointing the latter as the exclusive distributor of the THeMIS, the Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV), and Milrem’s Intelligent Functions Integration Kit (MIFIK) in Australia and New Zealand. XTEK has extensive experience and expertise in unmanned vehicle distribution, maintenance and value-added services.
The company’s established maintenance facilities include a Logistics Engineering Business Unit based in Canberra. Here, a pool of technicians and trainers with extensive Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) robot maintenance experience can provide maintenance for Milrem Robotics’ UGVs and RCVs.
The company plans to leverage its Adelaide Manufacturing Centre and unique XTclave™ technology for novel ballistic protection design, alongside other engineering and manufacturing services, for Milrem Robotics’ UGV systems.
