MBDA’s Brimstone Missile-Equipped THeMIS UGV Debuts at DSEI-2019

MBDA has unveiled Milrem Robotics THeMIS Unmanned Ground Vehicle equipped with six Brimstone precision strike missiles at DSEI-2019 exhibition in London, UK.

“Pairing the Brimstone missile with a UGV such as the Milrem Robotics’ THeMIS provides the tactical commander with the precision anti-armour capabilities,” Andy Allen, MBDA UK Head of Land Domain Sales and Business Development said.

The THeMIS is a versatile and robust unmanned system with low noise and heat signatures that can negotiate demanding terrains while keeping the operator in a safe distance. 

Using digital targeting data provided by the remote operator over standard secure military networks, the system will be capable of engaging line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight targets, with a choice of radar and SAL (semi-active laser) engagement modes.
