Milrem Robotics to develop propane tank hauler
Milrem Robotics has received a contract from Mac’s Trax to develop a new tracked propane tank hauler, Milrem announced on 19 April.
The optionally-manned, tracked hauler will be remotely controlled and capable of carrying a 1000 gallon propane tank.
Milrem has previously targeted the military market with its UGVs, including its THeMIS tracked hybrid modular infantry system. Mac’s Trax is the supplier of tracks for the THeMIS.
Milrem will provide product development services under the trademark Milrem Engineering.
Kuldar Vaarsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics, said: ‘We will focus on more complicated projects where we can apply our expertise in mechanics but also artificial intelligence. Milrem Engineering will cover everything starting with concept development and requirements analysis ending with testing and evaluating prototypes.’
During the last year the company has also started developing unmanned vehicles for the commercial
sector and has manufactured the Multiscope UGV for the civil firefighting, search and rescue, agriculture and mining sectors.
