Meeting tactical requirements on the battlefield
The International Golden Group (IGG) yesterday announced its cooperation with Milrem, an Estonian defence solutions provider, to develop and arm unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) with Aselsan.
The UGV prototype is currently being showcased at IDEX 2017, under the umbrella of IGG; visitors can test and interact with the product through the remote control unit along the sidelines of the exhibition.
Khalifa Al Balushi, Chief Executive Officer of International Golden Group and Chief Executive Officer of IGG Aselsan Integrated Systems explained: “The vehicle which will be produced is the first of its kind in the UAE, and is set to meet the tactical requirements on the battlefield and to increase the combat capability while minimising the damage and operational needs.”
“Our partnership with IGG stems from our aim to expand our operations and make the required technology available to develop such vehicles in the Middle East. The Prototype is the first of its kind in this collaboration, and will be deployed in numerous missions,” Kuldar Väärsi, Chief Executive Officer of Milrem, concluded.
