ROSY teams up with THeMIS for iMUGS demonstration
The ROSY 40mm rapid smoke/obscurant system from Rheinmetall has been deployed on the Milrem Robotics THeMIS Combat armed UGV for the first time.
Rheinmetall announced on 20 January that ROSY was demonstrated with THeMIS by Latvian Land Forces soldiers as part of the Integrated Modular Unmanned Ground System (iMUGS) collaborative programme.
THeMIS Combat is equipped with the FN Herstal deFNder Light remote weapon station. Enhancing the UGV with ROSY ‘adds another capability that protects units against unexpected attacks. Additionally, the smokescreen disrupts the view of the thermal sensors, which makes it more difficult [for adversaries] to detect the troops,’ said Capt (res) Jüri Pajuste, defence R&D director at Milrem Robotics.
