QNA (QinetiQ North America) is a leading provider of unmanned systems for the defense market with over 20 years of experience helping the US Military develop and field advanced, safety-critical, robotic solutions. Currently supporting the US Army with robotic systems from 20 pounds to 20 tons, QNA is focused on modular interoperable solutions that ensure the systems fielded today are ready for tomorrow’s threats.

QNA and Pratt & Miller will submit a variant of the Expeditionary Modular Autonomous Vehicle (EMAV) tailored to the Robotic Combat Vehicle program’s specific requirements of U.S. Army. The Robotic Combat Vehicle submission will leverage QNA’s modular open-architecture unmanned ground vehicle control systems integrated with Pratt & Miller’s advanced mobility platform. The resulting system is a robust non-developmental solution demonstrated to fulfill the Government’s required attributes. The RCV base platform has been proven through direct warfighter experimentation to be agile, powerful, and highly reliable.

“QinetiQ North America has focused on fielding advanced technical solutions to help our military counter emerging threats for over 25 years,” stated QNA’s President Jeff Yorsz. “We are excited to team with a company that has equal passion of providing groundbreaking real-world solutions to our warfighters.”

Pratt & Miller Defense specializes in the development and manufacturing of advanced vehicles and systems for the demanding requirements of the military. Matt Carroll, Pratt & Miller CEO expressed his support of the team “Our combined cultures of innovation and expertise in supporting the warfighter will provide the US Army with a mature world-class solution for the RCV program.”

At AUSA 2019, Expeditionary Modular Autonomous Vehicle was displayed with a full range of combat equipment including a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and Javelin Kongsberg Protector remote weapon station armed with one 12.7mm heavy machine gun and one anti-tank launcher weapon Javelin.
