Aware of the advantages that new technologies bring to the battlefield and supporting this dynamic, Arquus has decided to combine its expertise in mobility and robotics to create a multifunctional platform, the DRAILER. A teleoperated vehicle, the DRAILER is a 4×4 platform that can be deployed for infantry support missions, as well as various specialised missions such as engineering, electronic warfare, counter-drone operations, and very short-range ground-to-air missions. Equipped with a hybrid electric/diesel propulsion system ensuring silent movement, the DRAILER is a high-tech robot with autonomy suited to operational theatres. A versatile, towable platform, it is a valuable companion in the field. It can adapt to numerous payloads while maintaining crossing capabilities that meet high-intensity expectations.

The DRAILER is a 4×4 robot equipped with all-wheel drive and steering, ensuring exceptional maneuverability across diverse terrains. Powered by a robust 100 hp engine, it utilizes dual diesel fuel range extenders and a 14 kWh lithium-ion battery, ensuring reliable performance and endurance in diverse operational environments. Thanks to its independent suspension system, the DRAILER can conquer slopes of up to 60% and side slopes of 30%, making it a formidable asset in challenging environments. This robust platform can be towed at speeds up to 90 km/h and is teleoperable at speeds up to 40 km/h, showcasing its operational versatility in high-intensity theaters. It boasts a 14kWh battery and dual Diesel generators, allowing for continuous operation over 200 km at 20 km/h or up to 24 hours on standby. The DRAILER’s modular flatbed, measuring 2450×1600 mm, can transport heavy equipment with a payload capacity of 700 kg, underscoring its adaptability for various mission requirements.

Equipped with advanced cybersecurity measures to protect all components, the DRAILER also boasts significant firepower, including a Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS) with a 12.7 mm caliber, ammunition boxes, and anti-tank rockets. At Eurosatory, the DRAILER will be showcased in its infantry support variant, featuring a teleoperated HORNET 12.7 mm turret. This configuration emphasizes the platform’s support capabilities in combat scenarios. Its performance metrics are equally impressive, with a maximum towed speed of 90 km/h and an off-road speed of 40 km/h. The platform can tackle gradients up to 60% and side slopes up to 30%, showcasing its superior maneuverability in challenging terrains. The DRAILER multifunctional platform is poised to enhance tactical operations, offering a blend of strength, agility, and cutting-edge technology. Its Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) teleoperation capability extends up to 2 km, enhancing its operational reach and flexibility.

Arquus has consistently set benchmarks with its innovative designs and robust engineering. The company’s roots trace back to renowned brands like Renault Trucks Defense, ACMAT, and Panhard, which have long histories of excellence in military vehicle manufacturing. This rich heritage is now unified under the Arquus banner, bringing together decades of expertise and a commitment to advancing military mobility. With a presence in over 60 countries, Arquus has established itself as a trusted partner for numerous armed forces around the world. Their vehicles are designed to meet diverse operational environments, from the deserts of Africa to the frozen terrains of Northern Europe. Strategic partnerships and collaborations with other defense giants and governments further bolster their capabilities and market reach.
