Titan UGV fires Javelin missiles
The firings, carried out by the Javelin Joint Venture team, validated the integration of the Kongsberg remote weapon launcher, the missile and the UGV made by QinetiQ North America and Milrem Robotics.
Javelin, fielded on the Common Remote Operations Weapon Station-Javelin across US Army Stryker 8x8 vehicle brigades in Europe, is a versatile one-man-portable and platform-employed anti-tank and multi-target precision weapon system.
David Pantano, Javelin Joint Venture vice president and Lockheed Martin Javelin program director, said: ‘Javelin offers true fire-and-forget engagements to four kilometres in most operational conditions.
‘Once the launch command is issued, soldiers and vehicle assets like the UGV can reposition out of harm's way. These tests demonstrated our ability to evolve Javelin capabilities to address new missions in support of the warfighter.’
