QNA and MILREM Unveil Titan
- Titan is a First-of-Its-Kind Modular, Hybrid Unmanned Ground Vehicle
QinetiQ North America (QNA) and MILREM today introduced Titan at the 2016 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
Milrem, a company that specializes in the development of unmanned vehicles and repair and maintenance of heavy-duty military vehicles, and QinetiQ North America partnered to create a breakthrough UGV that combines Milrem's THeMIS (Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System), the first fully modular hybrid unmanned ground vehicle made for military applications, with QinetiQ North America's robotic control technology - the Tactical Robot Controller (TRC) and Robotic Appliqué Kit (RAK). This joint solution not only meets, but exceeds, the rigorous SMET program requirements. As a multi-mission vehicle platform, Titan is able to perform complex and hazardous tasks on the battlefield that are currently performed by soldiers.
