Milrem and QinetiQ have partnered to create Unmanned Ground Vehicle, ‘Titan’ that combines Milrem's THeMIS (Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System) with QinetiQ's the Tactical Robot Controller (TRC) and Robotic Appliqué Kit (RAK).
This joint solution meets the SMET program requirements. As a multi-mission vehicle platform, Titan is able to perform complex and hazardous tasks on the battlefield that are currently performed by soldiers, QinetiQ said in a statement Monday.
QinetiQ and MILREM introduced Titan at the 2016 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
THeMIS is a modular hybrid UGV made for military applications and TRC is a robotic control technology.
“We are very excited to partner with Milrem and leverage QinetiQ's unmanned ground vehicle technology to offer a new highly mobile, hybrid-electric robotic system that lightens the warfighter's load, increases soldier safety and improves mission endurance," said Jon Hastie, Product Manager at QinetiQ North America.
