Team Polaris has introduced a new variant of the MRZR vehicle with unmanned capability, the company announced on 6 February.

The MRZR X vehicle provides soldiers with a modular support platform with various modes of operation: traditional operator driving and multiple levels of autonomy, including the capability for remote control, teleoperation, follow-me, leader-follower and full autonomy.

These features allow the MRZR X to enhance and evolve mobility in various roles, such as robotic equipment mule, autonomous resupply, warfighter-driven squad carrier, logistics support vehicle, rescue missions and high-speed casualty evacuation.

In the future, the connectivity of MRZR X is expected to provide the ability to act as a networked node in the multi-domain battlespace.

John Olson, vice president and general manager of Polaris Government and Defense, said: ‘The MRZR is the preferred platform among infantry units and special forces worldwide, which helps make its integration and the transition from manned to unmanned systems easier for the warfighter.

‘The MRZR X maintains the MRZR mission profile and payload our customers are accustomed to, plus it has additional robotic and networked capabilities to further support warfighters.’
