Milrem Robotics’ THeMIS UGV is to be evaluated by the Defence Technology Institute of Thailand (DTI) for the Thai armed forces, the company announced on 28 November.

THeMIS will undergo tests in cooperation with the Royal Thai Army in order to evaluate the vehicles’ supply transport and remote weapons operation capabilities in Thai terrain and climatic conditions.

The unmanned remotely operated weapon platform testing will be carried out in cooperation with Electro Optic Systems (EOS). EOS is currently involved in a development project for D-Iron, which features the THeMIS UGV fitted with its R400S-MK2 remote weapon station.

The THeMIS is a fully modular hybrid robotics combat vehicle that can be equipped with various payloads including large and small calibre weapons, and deployed as an ISR platform, supply transport and an EOD system. The vehicle can carry a maximum payload of 1200kg and move at a speed of 25km/h. It can be equipped with an autonomy kit that allows independent point-to-point navigation and following a motorised convoy or a dismounted unit.
