Four Titan UGVs, developed by Milrem Robotics and QinetiQ, were tested by the British Army during the Army Warfighting Experiment 2018 (AWE18) - Autonomous Warrior (Land) exercise.

Two of the UGVs were deployed by Milrem Robotics and two by QinetiQ. The Milrem fielded systems included one configured as a casualty evacuation and logistical support unit, and the second was equipped with a tethered multi-rotor drone pod provided by Threod Systems.

The tests were conducted in three phases: conduct combat operations without the benefit of new technologies; conduct combat operations using new technologies but without changing tactics; and conduct combat operations using new technologies and adapting tactics according to the capability that the new technology provides. The UGVs were used in a number of different roles with missions conducted in urban, open and forested terrain.

One of the four UGVs was Titan Strike, a prototype system carrying a Kongsberg remote weapon station, fully controlled by a remote operator and using QinetiQ’s Pointer system as a means of integrating the capability with dismounted infantry. The second system, Titan Sentry, also enabled with Pointer, featured a Hensoldt provided sensor suite including EO and thermal imaging cameras and a battlefield radar.

QinetiQ also utilised one of the two Titan platforms in a logistics configuration as part of its work on the UK’s Autonomous Last Mile Resupply challenge, with demonstrations taking place alongside AWE18.
