At the International Defence & Security Exhibition Eurosatory 2012, the Finnish Company Patria showcases in world premiere the Nemo Plus –concept. This groundbreaking concept is based on Patria Nemo 120 mm mortar system with Kongsberg PROTECTOR Super Lite RWS (Remote Weapon System) integrated on wheeled armoured vehicle Patria AMV.
     

Nemo Plus -concept opens up even further possibilities to use turreted weapon systems in combat. Nemo Plus features the global market leader of turreted mortar systems - Patria Nemo 120 mm mortar system with superior firepower, protection, mobility and agility. It also features an additional remote weapon system (RWS) PROTECTOR Super Lite from Kongsberg which has been integrated on Patria Nemo. This unique combination deserves nothing but the best armoured wheeled vehicle platform - the undisputed market leader of modern 8x8’s – Patria AMV.

The Patria Nemo is based on the chassis of standard Patria wheeled armoured vehicle. Patria Nemo is a remote-controlled 120 mm mortar turret with excellent signature management and ballistic protection. As a modern and compact system, Patria Nemo can easily be mounted onto various tracked and wheeled chassis. Due to its low weight, only 1600 kg, Patria Nemo is also adaptable to lightweight, high-speed vessels.

     
The Patria Nemo Plus is equipped with the Kongsberg PROTECTOR Super Lite RWS (Remote Weapon System) mounted on the top of the mortar turret. This weapon system is fully stabilized and very light (only 30 kg without weapon & ammunition) and it can be equipped with a machine gun (e.g. M240, M249) thus increasing close fire support and situational awareness for the crew, while performing fire missions with Patria Nemo 120 mm mortar system.
     

Patria Nemo operates autonomously with impressive firepower, including direct and indirect fire, together with Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact (MRSI), up to a range of 10 km. This makes infantly battalion indirect fire support highly mobile, with increased firepower, high crew protection and rapid response times on the battlefield.

To increase the situational awareness even further the Nemo Plus -concept vehicle Patria AMV is equipped with SAS camera system from SAAB.
