The South Korean company Hyundai Rotem has announced that it has successfully completed operational tests of two new multi-purpose unmanned ground vehicles that can be equipped with different types of combat equipment as well as weapons.

In November 2020, Hyundai Rotem had won a contract to quickly deliver a new generation of combat UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle) able to conduct a wide range of missions. In July 2021, the South Korean company has performed all the trial tests and delivered the UGV to the south Korean army.

The 6x6 UGV designed and developed by Hyundai Rotem is the first robot system that has completed all the trial tests in accordance with military requirements. To respond to military needs, the Hyundai Rotem UGV was tested in various terrains and in real combat situations. It was used to conduct surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

According to information provided by Hyundai Rotem, the new 6x6 UGV is based on the "HR-Sherpa" also designed and developed by Hyundai Rotem. The 6x6 UGV is electrically powered offering the advantage to generate low noise in comparison with other military vehicles.

The Hyundai Rotem 6x6 UGV has an endurance of 6 hours at a speed of 5 km/h. It can reach a top road speed of 40 km/h and run at a maximum speed of 10 km/h in all-terrain conditions. The UGV is fitted with cameras able to detect objects in day and night conditions at a maximum range of 4 km. All the images can be recorded in real-time.
