Kairos Autonomi wins military self-drive vehicle kit contract
Kairos Autonomi will equip 12 US Army National Guard ranges across the nation with Pronto4 Robotic Appliqué Kits under a contract announced on 11 October. The systems will be fitted to vehicles and used as moving land targets.
Under the contract, the company will deliver its Pronto4 Robotic Appliqué Kits, ground control stations and radio infrastructure. The hardware, software and infrastructure will provide each range with remote moving targets controlled from range facilities with full video and radio control.
The Pronto4 is a robotic appliqué kit that allows vehicles to drive themselves by following a pre-defined GPS path or by remote controlled operation. The kit can be installed in most vehicles in about 1-2 days. According to the company, the kits provide realistic moving target that enhances realistic training and test environments for military personnel.
Product deliverables at each range may also include site infrastructure and support requirements, and the vehicles can also be configured for laser operations. The Period of Performance is expected to be 12 months.
