Dutch army receives two THeMIS UGVs
Milrem Robotics has delivered two THeMIS UGVs to the Robot and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Unit of the 13th Light Brigade of the Royal Netherlands Army, the company announced on 28 May.
The UGVs were delivered as part of the army’s Concept Development and Experimentation Project that looks into how to exploit unmanned platforms to increase combat power and decrease risk to personnel.
The THeMIS UGVs were delivered in transport configuration together with initial spare parts and accessories.
The company will also provide operator and maintenance training, tactical deployment know-how and life cycle support and upgrades during a two-year period.
THeMIS’ capabilities were put to the test after delivery in Scotland during an exercise where the RAS used UGVs
for the first time.
