Live demonstration of the THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle by MIlrem integrated with the deFNder remote weapon station by FN Herstal. As the name suggest this unit is equipped with the deFNder® Medium remote weapon station developed by FN Herstal. In partnership with FN Herstal and the Estonian Defence Forces this armed UGV has been deployed at the biggest Estonian defence exercise Spring Storm 2017. In December 2017 live firing tests were conducted in Estonia where the weapon system was tested with a moving UGV as well as a stationary vehicle.
The Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System, or THeMIS for short, is the first hybrid fully modular unmanned ground vehicle in the world. The vehicle is intended to provide support for dismounted troops by serving as a transport platform, remote weapon station, IED detection and disposal unit, and much more. The vehicle’s open architecture gives it the multi-missions capability much needed on the modern battlefield. The THeMIS can be outfitted with small- or large-calibre weapon systems, but can also serve as an IED detection and disposal platform. The possible uses for the THeMIS are almost limitless.
Modular design allows the use of various weapons: FN MAG®, FN® M2HB-QCB
