Spanish company Sascorp will present a concept of Tellus amphibious unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) at the FEINDEF 2021 exhibition that will be held in Madrid from November 3-5.
The company expects to build a prototype of the UGV within three years.
The 3.5 ton UGV to carry out amphibious missions will have a load capacity of 1,700kg. It will be fitted with a 40mm main weapon and anti-tank missile launchers in its combat configuration, Infodefensa reported today.
Sascorp’s goal is to develop a multipurpose platform specially designed for off-track missions and adapted to different environments and applications. The UGV will be 4.3m long, 2.3m wide and 1.8m tall. It will have a satellite link and situational awareness to optimize remote driving, although it will also incorporate the follow me version.
The vehicle will feature adjustable air suspension and independent six-wheel drive. It will be designed to reach a maximum speed of 40kmph on land and 6 knots in water. It can function autonomously for ten hours in land mode and for eight hours in amphibious mode.
It will be available in four variants to support different types of tasks- sapper unit, combat vehicle, logistics vehicle and emergency support version.
