Slovenian Minister of Defence, Marjan Šarec, signed a contract marking the launch of the groundbreaking R&D project, MANGART 25. In collaboration with a consortium of esteemed Slovenian companies, including Valhalla Turrets as a lead partner, ASH, Carboteh Technologies, and Leokom, Guardiaris is set to revolutionize the field of air defense. Over the next 24 months, The team will work tirelessly to develop a state-of-the-art, lightweight remotely controlled air defense system. The technological model of MANGART 25 will feature an impressive array of capabilities. Equipped with a 25mm calibre cannon, it will be capable of neutralizing unmanned aerial vehicles and other aerial or ground targets at distances of up to 3000 meters. Additionally, the system will include a 7.62mm machine gun, an electro-optical targeting and observation device, and an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar.
One of the standout features of MANGART 25 is its modular design, enabling seamless integration with other vehicles used by the Slovenian Armed Forces. With minimal adaptations, it can accommodate weapons of different calibres, along with additional subsystems such as laser designation warning systems, acoustic bullet sensors, anti-tank missile systems, surface-to-air missiles, and unmanned aerial vehicles. Moreover, the system can be enhanced with cutting-edge technologies like machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence for advanced target detection, identification, and tracking systems. In an exciting collaboration, Carboteh has developed an alarm stimulator for missile approach warning sensors installed in aircraft, which will be integrated into the MANGART 25 system. Furthermore, Guardiaris will play a key role in this project by developing and providing the digital twin, system trainer, and simulator for the remotely controlled air defense system.
