Estonian companies aim to develop mobile C-UAS capability on UGV

18th March 2021 - 14:41 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Mobile C-UAS platform from Milrem Robotics and Marduk Technologies would enable flexible tactical responses to the threat posed by loitering munitions and surveillance drones.

Milrem Robotics is working with fellow Estonian company Marduk Technologies to develop a ‘unique’ mobile autonomous C-UAS platform that offers protection against loitering munitions and surveillance UAVs.

Using AI algorithms and machine learning, the new system blends EO-based C-UAS technology from Marduk with the THeMIS UGV from Milrem.

‘This mobile solution provides frontline forces with an independent ability to accurately detect and target loitering munitions and other flying objects,’ Milrem noted on 18 March.

Being mobile, the Milrem/Marduk solution can be relocated flexibly to provide early warning according to frontline threat assessments.

‘Frontline forces on the move are most exposed to adversary drones. The mobile autonomous C-UAS platform gives our customers an additional layer of protection,’ said Marduk CEO Martin Simon. 

The platform can be integrated with soft- and hard-kill weapon systems, radars, RF detectors, jamming systems or lasers, Milrem noted.

CEO Kuldar Väärsi said: ‘Autonomous UGVs equipped with a C-UAS payload create a new capability on the battlefield that allows forces to focus on their main task of engaging the adversary while UGVs provide better situational awareness and force protection.'
