Milrem Robotics Launches THeMIS Observe

ISR Variant of THeMIS to be Evaluated in iMIGS Demonstration

Milrem Robotics will launch a newly-developed ISR UGV during the upcoming fourth iMUGS project demonstration in Belgium next month.

Based on the company’s THeMIS UGV and with an optional lightweight RWS, the THeMIS Observer features industry leading sensors: Hensoldt’s Z:Sparrowhawk camera; a Squire radar from Thales; Metravib’s Defence Pearl acoustic shot detection system and Rheinmetall’s Rapid Obscuring System (ROSY). “The combination of those systems allows units to do multi-sensor identification on one platform and react faster on emerging targets,” explained Jüri Pajuste, the company’s Defence Research Director.

Additionally, THeMIS Observe features Milrem’s Intelligent Functions Kit, enabling autonomous functions such as follow-me, waypoint navigation with obstacle detection and avoidance. “A UGV-based ISR system significantly increases a tactical unit’s reaction speed on targets, as well as the stand-off distance from enemy units […] Thanks to that, the capability and survivability of tactical reconnaissance units will increase considerably,” Pajuste commented, adding that this type of capability is usually not available on a single platform for light infantry units.

The iMUGS project, funded by the EU’s European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP), aims to develop a European standardised unmanned ground system (EUGS), developing appropriate, modular, scalable architecture for hybrid manned-unmanned systems, to standardise a European-wide ecosystem.
