Milrem’s THeMIS Fills the Gap in the Unmanned Vehicles Market

The THeMIS (Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System) features a diesel-electric hybrid drive, has a payload of 750kg/1650lbs and a top speed of 24km/h / 15mph. However, its most innovative feature is the ability for rapid configuration that allows it to take the form of several mission specific solutions.

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Unmanned systems technology innovator Milrem fills the markets need for a fully customizable unmanned ground vehicle with its open architecture UGV THeMIS.


The THeMIS (Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System) features a diesel-electric hybrid drive, has a payload of 750kg/1650lbs and a top speed of 24km/h / 15mph. However, its most innovative feature is the ability for rapid configuration that allows it to take the form of several mission specific solutions.

The multipurpose vehicle can serve as a transportation platform carrying a squad's gear, a remote weapon station equipped with small or large caliber weapons, IED detection and disposal platform and much more.

The UGV was launched last October in cooperation with QinetiQ North America. The joint product has been equipped with QNA's UGV control technology - the Tactical Robot Controller (TRC) and Robotic Appliqué Kit (RAK). This vehicle, codenamed Titan, is aimed at the Squad Multipurpose Equipment Transport (SMET) program initiated by the US Army. It will be exhibited during AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2017 in Dallas this week.

The UGV has been developed meeting requirements detailed in the Army's Robotic and Autonomous Systems Strategy. "It will significantly reduce warfighter workload, serve as a force multiplier and increase situational awareness," explained Kuldar Väärsi, the CEO of Milrem.

The vehicle has also been developed for the commercial sector aimed at industries such as mining, mobile off-road mapping, search and rescue etc.
