In recent conflicts, there has been an increase in the usage of drones and loitering munition against various military targets. The employment of this type of equipment has made low-level conflicts more lethal. 

MSI-Defence Systems (MSI-DSL) and Milrem Robotics have joined forces to develop a step-change in countering mini-UAV, loitering munitions or other small difficult to detect airborne targets.

The system utilizes THeMIS unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) integrated with Remote Weapon Systems (RWS) and Electrical Optical Sensor Systems.

The highly mobile, unmanned C-UAS systems will be capable of carrying payloads from 7.62 to 30 mm and will also be able to find and engage larger air threats as well as ground targets, even if armored. All without the operator being exposed to the threats.

Utilizing unmanned ground systems with intelligent functions to counter these new threats helps increase force protection, provide flexibility to tactical units to engage aerial and/or land targets, and ultimately reduce loss of life, according to
