The Mobile Autonomous Robot System, or MARS, is capable of handling a wide variety of objects, such as IED's, landmines, and hazardous devices. It is based on the same electrically propelled wheeled platform than the MASS. The system is also capable of operating in autonomous, semi autonomous and teleoperation modes.

The MARS system consists of six DOF manipulator fitted on a small mobile platform. It is capable of autonomous navigation and intelligent autonomous handling of suspect objects. MARS has also a maximum payload capability of 300 kg and reaches a max speed of 10 km/h. It offers a high degree of freedom to the operator thanks to its six rotating joints. It can grab objects of 10 kg and situated at up to 2 meters of distance from the UGV.
