MSI-Defence Systems Limited (MSI-DSL) and Milrem Robotics are jointly showcasing highly mobile, unmanned kinetic C-UAV capabilities at the World Defense Show.

The jointly developed system comprising of Milrem Robotics’ THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) integrated with MSI-DSL’s Remote Weapon System (RWS) and Electrical Optical Sensor System is capable of countering mini-UAV, loitering munitions or other small difficult to detect airborne targets for both deployed assets and critical infrastructure.

MSI-DSL is a developer of leading-edge weapon and underwater systems while Milrem Robotics is an European robotics and autonomous system developer.

“There has been an increase in the usage of drones and loitering munition against various military targets,” said Captain (res) Jüri Pajuste, Defence Research and Development Director at Milrem Robotics. ” 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 land targets, and ultimately reduce loss of life.”

“MSI-DSL and Milrem are committed to providing ‘cutting edge’ capabilities to the operator providing a highly deployable system with unique lethality and survivability,” said Brigadier Haydn White RM (Ret), Senior Military Adviser at MSI-DSL. “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.”

THeMIS Combat UGVs equipped with MIFIK (Milrem’s Intelligent Functions Kit) offer follow-me, return home, and point-to-point navigation functionalities that considerably enhance the fighting capability of units.

The highly mobile, unmanned C-UAS systems can carry payloads from 7.62 to 30 mm including the Northrop Grumman M230 cannon and Thales LMM missiles. It will be able to find and engage larger air threats as well as ground targets, even if armoured. All without the operator being exposed to threats.

Milrem Robotics’ THeMIS UGV has already been acquired by 12 countries, including several NATO members. MSI-Defence Systems is a major supplier of small and medium calibre gun systems.
