Bundeswehr Tests THeMIS Unmanned Ground Vehicle

During November 23-27 Milrem Robotics participated in an experiment in Germany with Milrem Robotics THeMIS Unmanned Ground Vehicl (UGV) equipped with MIFIK (Milrem’s Intelligent Functions Integrations Kit). The THeMIS was tested in rough terrain in close support for infantry carrying heavy weapons and other equipment. The THeMIS can carry up to 1200 kg. Soldiers also tested Unmanned Ground Vehicle follow-me, waypoint navigation and teleoperation functions during night and day. The THeMIS has already proven itself as a unique tool for dismounted troops and now, with the MIFIK, the utilization of it, is even easier.

THeMIS (Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System), unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), is a ground-based armed drone vehicle designed largely for military applications, and is built by Milrem Robotics in Estonia. The vehicle is intended to provide support for dismounted troops by serving as a transport platform, remote weapon station, IED detection and disposal unit etc. The vehicle’s open architecture gives it multi-missions capability. The main purpose of the THeMIS Transport is to support onbase logistics and provide last mile resupply for fighting units on the front line. It supports infantry units by reducing their physical and cognitive load, increasing stand-off distance, force protection and survivability.

THeMIS Combat UGVs provide direct fire support for manoeuvre forces acting as a force multiplier. With an integrated self-stabilizing remote-controlled weapon system, they provide high precision over wide areas, day and night, increasing stand-off distance, force protection and survivability. Combat UGVs can be equipped with light or heavy machine guns, 40 mm grenade launchers, 30mm autocannons and Anti-Tank Missile Systems. THeMIS ISR UGVs have advanced multi-sensor intelligence gathering capabilities. Their main purpose is to increase situational awareness, provide improved intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance over wide areas and battle damage assessment capability.
