New THeMIS UGV introduced

1st March 2018 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Milrem Robotics has introduced its next generation THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) designed and developed for desert terrain and hot climates, the company announced on 24 February.

The new version of the THeMIS incorporates knowledge gained from rigorous testing in the desert climate and terrain of the UAE.

The new variant is slightly larger than the original THeMIS vehicle, has better traction in desert conditions as well as better cooling systems and features a larger payload area that can be used to carry different remote weapon systems, surveillance and C-IED equipment.

Weapon systems integrations on the THeMIS vehicle have been completed with Singapore Technologies Kinetics, Aselsan and FN Herstal.

Milrem Robotics has also further developed the autonomous control system for the vehicle, specifically with waypoint navigation that allows UGV to follow a predetermined path without the need for operator control.

This feature enables the UGV to be used for perimeter patrol, especially when equipped with a remote weapon station. In addition to detecting enemy forces this addition allows the system to take immediately action against them, and simultaneously send vital surveillance data back to headquarters inside the perimeter.
