The weaponized warfare system features the THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle equipped with the R400S – Mk2-HD (dual) RWS mounting 30mm ATK M230 LF cannon and a coaxial 7.62mm GPMG. An optional ATGW missile integration is available. This remotely operated vehicle enhances a land force’s firepower; situational awareness due to advanced sensors; increases stand-off distance, and is especially effective against light armored vehicles. The vehicle can also be equipped with autonomous functions used for area or perimeter patrolling.
The system will always be under the control of a human (man-in-the-loop).
”Milrem Robotics’ THeMIS is a UGV with outstanding terrain navigating performance, and with the extremely well stabilized EOS R400S-MK2-HD (dual) remote weapon system in combination we have created a large caliber warfare system that can efficiently provide both superior fire support for dismounted troops and be used as a robotic weaponized unit on its own,” explained Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics.
“Due to the system’s light weight and size, our joint product can be rapidly deployed with mounted and/or dismounted units, requiring less logistical effort,” he added.
“We look forward to working with the Milrem Robotics team at IDEX and into the future. The integration of the R400S – Mk2 – HD onto the the THeMIS further demonstrates EOS’ commitment to providing flexible firepower solutions,” said AbdulRahman AlBlooshi CEO of EOS Advanced Technologies, UAE.
This is the first integration project for the two companies and the largest caliber cannon fitted to the THeMIS platform.
EOS and Milrem Robotics are planning to test fire the system as soon as possible.
