Published on 21 March 2024 By APDR

Milrem Robotics has successfully concluded its participation in the US Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE). The event, conducted in February in Fort Moore, USA, focussed on experimenting with new technology in realistic operational settings. In cooperation and partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Defence and at the invitation of the Dutch Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) unit it allowed Milrem Robotics to present the capabilities of weaponised THeMIS Combat Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV).

Prior to and during the event, Milrem Robotics was actively engaged with the RAS unit to refine operational concepts for deployment within combat formations.

“AEWE showcased the advanced stage of the THeMIS UGV, highlighting its operational readiness and allowing us to collect crucial user feedback on the system and concepts,” stated Patrick Shepherd, Milrem Robotics’ Chief Sales Officer.

Equipped with Milrem’s Intelligent Functions Kits (MIFIK) the UGVs also successfully partook in autonomous functions experiments on various terrain and environments. “Integrated with intelligent functions, third party payloads such as weapon systems, route clearance or casualty evacuation systems, the THeMIS is now operational globally,” Shepherd added. The last two systems are actively supporting combat efforts in Ukraine.

“Our ongoing collaboration with our Ukrainian partners involves a dynamic feedback loop. This process not only enhances the system’s performance swiftly but also allows us to implement and test modifications in actual combat scenarios,” Shepherd esaid.

Milrem Robotics is the leading European robotics and autonomous systems developer and systems integrator, with offices in Estonia, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the US. The company is known for their THeMIS and Multiscope UGVs, the Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle and MIFIK.
