KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 11 -- Milrem Robotics has unveiled its mission proven, fifth generation THeMIS UGV, assisting soldiers on the battlefield and enhancing combat effectiveness.

According to a statement by the unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) manufacturer, the vehicle has been introduced at the Singapore Airshow 2020.

The tracked multipurpose UGV can be equipped with remote weapon systems, tethered drones, C-IED solutions and ISR sensors. 

With the possibility to mount various payloads, the UGV acts as a force multiplier.

The fifth generation THeMIS incorporates NATO STANAG standards in the vehicle’s architecture, safety, air transportability, power offload and other aspects.

In addition, the UGV has been equipped with autonomous functions including point-to-point navigation, obstacle detection and avoidance, enabling it to follow dismounted troops, patrol a perimeter, provide front line resupply and evacuate casualties with minimal intervention by the operator.

Deployed in Mali, Africa during the French lead anti-insurgent operation Barkhane since early last year, the fifth generation THeMIS incorporates all the knowledge gained during rigorous tests held in the United States, Europe and Singapore.
