The Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System (THeMIS) is the first hybrid fully modular unmanned ground vehicle in the world, claims Milrem Robotics. The vehicle is intended to provide support for dismounted troops by serving as a transport platform, remote weapon station, IED detection and disposal unit, and much more.
The vehicle’s open architecture gives it the multi-missions capability much needed on the modern battlefield,
The company has integrated various systems onto its THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle, which has become a standard in the field of UGVs. The integration projects include different payload manufacturers, such as MBDA, EOS, ST Engineering, Nexter, Kongsberg and FN Herstal.
“The THeMIS has truly strengthened it’s positions as the industry standard UGV,” said General (ret) Riho Terras, President of the Defence Division at Milrem Robotics.
“The THeMIS truly is the swiss-army-knife of ground robots with so many different usage options. Thanks to this it has piqued the interest of several countries in Europe and in the Middle-East who wish to add it to their robotics testing programs and find the best way to integrate the system to their doctrine,” said Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics.
In the end of 2018, four THeMIS UGVs were tested in the United Kingdom during the Army Warfighting Experiment by NATO soldiers. The three-week experiment resulted in very positive feedback and was an example for other similar programs, according to businesswire.com.
