Milrem Robotics, Europe’s leading robotics and autonomous systems developer, an entity within EDGE, one of the world’s leading advanced technology and defence groups, will introduce its unmanned combat and firefighting ground vehicles (UGVs) for the first time in Latin America at the LAAD Defence and Security 2023 exhibition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. On display at the exhibition will be the THeMIS Combat and the Multiscope Rescue UGVs. THeMIS UGVs have already been delivered to 16 countries internationally, including eight NATO countries: Estonia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, the UK and USA.
“Milrem Robotics’ THeMIS has already proven to be a reliable and capable robotic system in many countries and in very different climate zones, from tropical environments to the Arctic. We are proud to present future unmanned military solutions in Latin America, and ready to deliver our systems with full support for deployment in different roles,” said Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics.
THeMIS Combat UGVs provide high precision direct fire support for manoeuvre units and act as a force multiplier. The THeMIS displayed at LAAD is equipped with the two-axis gyro-stabilised GUARDIAN 2.0 remote weapon station by Escribano Mechanical & Engineering (EM&E) that, together with advanced sensors and fire control system, allow dismounted infantry units to assess and engage the enemy at maximum standoff distances, increasing force protection and survivability day and night, and in adverse weather conditions. The Multiscope Rescue was designed to provide a durable and flexible platform with rescue-specific plug-and-play payloads for various rescue missions. It can withstand harsh conditions and enter areas that are difficult to reach with larger vehicles, or too dangerous for firefighters. It is equipped with InnoVfoam’s Hydra fire monitors and is ideal for use in industrial, warehouse, tunnel, and wildfire extinguishing.
Milrem Robotics’ products will be on display together with EDGE on stand S.42.
