RBSL offers UGV training to British Army
Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land (RBSL) has secured a training and maintenance contract with Rheinmetall Canada to support the British Army’s recent acquisition of four Mission Master UGVs.
The Mission Master – Cargo UGVs will be operated by the Robotic Platoon Vehicle experimentation programme which seeks to better understand the role that UGVs can play in enhancing the UK’s defence capabilities.
Peter Hardisty, managing director of RBSL, said: ‘The Rheinmetall Mission Master vehicles are a testament to how the modern battlefield is changing, and we look forward to supporting Rheinmetall Canada and our armed forces with capability insights that will inform future force development.
The order for four vehicles from Rheinmetall Canada was confirmed on 17 April and they will be used to support ISR, medical evacuations, firefighting, CBNR detection and radio relay.
Each unit is capable of transporting goods and equipment weighing up to 0.5t.
