“Taking a user-centric approach we were tasked to develop a reliable and affordable UGV solution with multi-mission capabilities, that would not make a huge dent in budgets to replace. We have developed the vehicle with speed to market; for increased on-ground capabilities, protection of personnel and decreased costs.” says Davinder Dogra, CEO of Milanion.
Milanion’s 8x8 all-terrain AGEMA is a fully modular, agile UGV equipped with proven world-class technology and performance; designed to support a range of critical missions. The amphibious vehicle’s multi-role platform is fitted with a customisable deck that can be adapted to any mission-specific payload.
At UMEX 200, the AGEMA UGV was fitted with a remotely operated weapon station R400S – Mk2-HD designed and manufactured by the Australian Company EOS. The turret is armed with one 30mm ATK M230 LF cannon and a coaxial 7.62mm GPMG. An optional ATGW missile integration is available. This remotely operated vehicle enhances a land force’s firepower; situational awareness due to advanced sensors; increases stand-off distance, and is especially effective against light armored vehicle.
Positioned as the ‘ultra-versatile mission support UGV’; AGEMA mission profiles include logistic support and force protection, ISR, Drone Launch and Anti-Drone Systems, Anti-Tank Support, Medevac, Route Inspection and Clearance, Mesh Communications, Border Protection, Critical Infrastructure Security and Protection, Fire & Rescue.
