Milrem Robotics, the renowned European leader in robotics and autonomous systems, has introduced a groundbreaking combat Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) that is set to revolutionize modern warfare. The latest innovation from Milrem Robotics combines their highly intelligent THeMIS UGV with the advanced HITROLE Light Remote Weapon Station (RWS) developed by Leonardo. This integration marks a significant milestone in unmanned combat systems, providing unparalleled direct fire support and acting as a force multiplier.
The THeMIS Combat UGVs equipped with the HITROLE Light RWS offer a wide range of capabilities, including surveillance, patrolling, border security, counter-sniper operations, and asymmetric missions. These UGVs can be fitted with various weapon options, such as a 7.62 mm or a 12.7 mm Machine Gun, as well as a 40 mm Automatic Grenade Launcher. Assisted by cutting-edge artificial intelligence functions for target acquisition, recognition prioritization, and tracking, these autonomous systems are a game-changer on the battlefield.
With a primary focus on troop safety, the THeMIS Combat UGVs allow operators to engage targets from a protected position, increasing force protection and stand-off distances. The HITROLE Light RWS, a multi-role ultra-lightweight turret, has already been deployed in more than 300 units across the globe and possesses unparalleled versatility and reliability.
“The integration of the HITROLE Light RWS with our THeMIS platform is a significant achievement for us. Together with Leonardo, we can provide exceptionally capable robotic combat systems to the Italian Army and our customers worldwide. This collaboration not only enhances warfighting capabilities but more importantly, contributes to the safety of our troops,” said Kuldar Väärsi, the CEO of Milrem Robotics.
The THeMIS UGV has gained widespread popularity internationally, with its multi-role capabilities featuring in robotics programs across 16 countries, including NATO members. Milrem Robotics continues to be at the forefront of unmanned systems development and integration. With offices in Estonia, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United States, the company continues to push boundaries with their groundbreaking THeMIS and Multiscope UGVs, the Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle, and MIFIK.
