|Nexter Systems creates its new subdivision Nexter Robotics for counter mines and IEDs robots.|
On October 22, 2012, Nexter Systems created Nexter Robotics, a new subsidiary wholly-owned by the Group. Nexter Robotics provides new solutions for the needs expressed both by France’s Armed Forces and friendly forces abroad for small-scale robots capable of performing reconnaissance and counter-IED (Improvised Explosive Devices) missions for route clearance, while also offering new applications for Civil Security units.
The first product in the Nexter Robotics line, the NERVA LG robot, was unveiled last year at the EuroSatory 2012 trade show.
Both in France and abroad, working directly with customers and through its network of partners, Nexter Robotics is primarily focusing its activities on design, development, industrialization, production, commercialization and technical support for both land-based and air/land hybrid robotic systems, together with all the associated components and mission modules. Nexter can also provide tailor-made engineering solutions to incorporate robots in existing weapon systems and infrastructures, and is developing licensing agreements as part of its activities.
