Milrem Robotics, an Estonian company, has developed a new weapon system for its unmanned ground vehicle. The revamped vehicle comes equipped with a loitering ammunition launcher, in response to the increasing demand for such systems in combat. Gert Hankewitz, the director of marketing and export control at Milrem Robotics, stated that the war in Ukraine has led to a rise in interest for loitering ammunition systems, prompting the company’s development of this new product.
The weapon system is based on Milrem’s flagship tracked platform. The company’s basic THeMIS variant is predominantly used for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions. The new vehicle, on the other hand, is specifically designed for combat. With a presence already established in countries such as Australia, France, Germany, India, and the United States, Milrem Robotics hopes to further expand its international market by offering this advanced weapon system.
Milrem Robotics, founded in 2013 and headquartered in Tallinn, Estonia, is majority-owned by the Emirati holding Edge Group. The company’s innovative approach to unmanned ground vehicles has positioned it as a key player in the defense industry. By incorporating a loitering ammunition launcher into their latest product, Milrem Robotics demonstrates its commitment to meeting the evolving needs of modern warfare.
