Milrem’s UV Can Reduce the Load of Soldiers

Milrem recently demonstrated a transport solution based on a tracked vehicle that will reduce the load of soldiers, and increase security. This activity was carried out at Silver Arrow, the large NATO Allied Forces exercise that is taking place in Latvia.
The unmanned vehicle THeMIS (Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System) developed by Milrem can carry a load of at least 750 kg. This carrying capacity makes the vehicle an ideal means of transport for soldiers patrolling on foot, as the vehicle can carry their backpacks, water supply, ammunition and other equipment.
The reduced load enables soldiers to focus 100 per cent on their mission, and the improved manoeuvring ability increases their security. THeMIS moves at up to 24 km/h, which is sufficient to follow soldiers on foot and to perform some faster manoeuvres if needed. 
“The defence forces of several countries have expressed interest towards the transport solution demonstrated. Solving logistical problems is the first and simplest solution when bringing unmanned vehicles like this to the battleground,” said Kuldar Väärsi, CEO, Milrem. 
THeMIS is the world’s first modular unmanned tracked vehicle driven by a hybrid engine. It consists of two identical track modules that contain all the electronics and mechanics for moving the vehicle.
Between the two modules, there is an empty platform that can be used, not only for transporting equipment, but also for carrying weapon systems, equipment for identifying improvised explosive devices (C-IED) or other systems. THeMIS can be used as a remotely controlled or an autonomous vehicle.
