Milrem Robotics to lead iMUGS development

17th June 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Milrem Robotics is leading a consortium of European defence, communications and cyber security companies which will execute the integrated Modular Unmanned Ground System (iMUGS) programme.

The European Commission awarded €30.6 million ($34.48 million) from the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP) to the consortium. However, the total cost of the effort is reported to be €32.6 million.

Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics, said: ‘iMUGS is an excellent example of how Europe can utilise and develop high-end technologies as a joint effort while avoiding scattering activities and resources… the European Defence Fund is efficiently consolidating the requirements of EU members states and the European industry’s capabilities to increase defence capabilities and strategic autonomy.’

The iMUGS consortium includes: Bittium Wireless, Diehl Defence, dotOcean, Estonian Military Academy, GMV Aerospace & Defence, GT Cyber Technologies, Insta DefSec, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann, Latvijas Mobilais Telefons, Nexter Systems, Royal Military Academy of Beligum, Safran Electronics & Defence and (Un)Manned.
