Milrem Robotics Will Deliver UGVs to the UK

Milrem Robotics will deliver two unmanned ground vehicles to the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) of the United Kingdom.

DSTL whose purpose is to maximise the impact of science and technology for the defence and security of the UK, is procuring the unmanned vehicles to explore the capabilities and limitations of these autonomous systems in areas such as mobility, vulnerabilities and safety.

Milrem Robotics supplies the vehicles to DSTL in partnership with QinetiQ who will integrate autonomous functions to the vehicles and arrange transfer to the end user.

In cooperation with QinetiQ, Milrem Robotics is participating in two UK’s large-scale robotic programs – JTARR (Joint Tactical Autonomous Resupply and Replenishment) and RPV (Robotic Platoon Vehicle), both worth over £ 50 million per program.

“The United Kingdom has a clear view on the importance of robotics on the battlefield and its impact on defence capabilities. This is illustrated by the two large-scale robotics programs in which Milrem Robotics is currently participating in the UK,” said Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics.

Milrem Robotics THeMIS unmanned vehicles have already been sold in the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Indonesia, the UK and the United States.
