Utilising Milrem Robotics' THeMIS unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) integrated with MSI-DSL' Remote Weapon Systems (RWS) and Electrical Optical Sensor Systems, the companies are offering a step-change in countering mini-UAV, loitering munitions or other small difficult-to-detect airborne targets. The highly mobile, unmanned C-UAS systems will be capable of carrying weapons from 7.62 to 30mm, as well as the Northrop Grumman M230 cannon and Thales LMM missiles. It will also be able to find and engage larger air threats as well as ground targets, even if armoured, all without the operator being exposed to the threats.

Russell Gregory, Head of Strategy, Industrial Relations and Market Development at MSI-DSL, said: "MSI-DSL and Milrem are committed to providing 'cutting edge' capabilities to the operator providing a highly deployable system with unique lethality and survivability. The autonomous nature of the system enables the operator to sense, identify, decide and effect over a wide area without placing the operator in areas of undue risk".

Captain (res.) Jüri Pajuste, Defence Research and Development Director at Milrem Robotics, said: "In recent conflicts, there has been an increase in the usage of drones and loitering munition against various military targets. The employment of this type of equipment has made low-level conflicts more lethal. Utilizing unmanned ground systems with intelligent functions to counter these new threats helps increase force protection, provide flexibility to tactical units to engage aerial and/or land targets, and ultimately reduce loss of life".

The unmanned C-UAS platforms provide highly effective protection for both tactical and static sites for deployed assets and critical infrastructure.
