Its latest innovations are driven by design principles that integrate 'smartness' into proven technologies centred on battlefield preparedness in an unpredictable environment. The solutions offer a balanced combination of high survivability, great mobility, and enhanced situational awareness for a wide spectrum of operations.

New solutions on display include the Bronco New-Gen, Robotic Mapping Vehicle (RMV), Robotic Articulated-Wheel Vehicle (RAWV) and the 40mm Day & Night Marker (DNM) Round.

Bronco New-Gen
The Bronco New-Gen is the newest iteration of the battle proven Bronco All Terrain Tracked Carrier, and provides high protection and mobility with increased internal space but lower all up weight. The Bronco New-Gen's V-shaped front and rear cabin hulls are designed to be stiffer and lighter with greater spaciousness to accommodate various crew and equipment configurations. Its rear cabin is designed to be modular and can be quickly interchanged for a wide spectrum of missions. As the lightest vehicle in the family, the Bronco New-Gen offers growth potential in payload and protection to survive a multitude of IEDs and landmines.

Robotic Mapping Vehicle (RMV)
ST Kinetics' Robotic Mapping Vehicle (RMV) is an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) with semi-autonomous capabilities, offering warfighters in high threat environments with dual advantages. First, it can traverse difficult terrain and obstacles, effectively collecting critical intelligence from inaccessible areas. Second, it is capable of providing real-time situational updates to the soldier, helping achieve sustained surveillance and reconnaissance objectives.

Robotic Articulated-Wheel Vehicle (RAWV)
ST Kinetics' third new exhibit is the Robotic Articulated-Wheel Vehicle (RAWV). Its suspension system allows it to surpass the mobility of conventional UGVs in such areas like crossing gaps wider than half the RAWV's width. The unmanned vehicle can function in both combat and transportation support roles, carrying equipment and supplies for dismounted troops to ease the logistics burden or carry out missions like fire or mortar-support, surveillance, and mine-detection as a "last-mile enabler" for the warfighter.

40mm Day & Night Marker (DNM) Round
ST Kinetics' latest innovation for effective peacetime training is the 40mm Day & Night Marker (DNM) round, developed to enhance the warfigher's combat readiness by allowing clear recognition of the 40mm round's impact after firing. The 40mm DNM round's impact, made visible via colour clouds is visible to the naked eye up to 300m, be it day or night. Under low light conditions, the round's luminous tracer and impact signature are also highly detectable through night vision equipment utilising either infra-red or thermal sights.
