Rheinmetall’s robotic wheeled vehicle system

The Multi Mission Unmanned Ground Vehicle System makes its debut

In military and law enforcement operations alike, robotics plays an increasingly important role. At IDEX 2017 Rheinmetall is presenting its Multi-Mission Unmanned Ground Vehicle System for the first time ever – a wheeled solution designed for maximum versatility.

Unmanned systems can operate autonomously, semi-autonomously or in remote control mode. They relieve the pressure on human beings, and are particularly useful in hazardous, high-risk situations. Moreover, when fitted with different equipment kits and subsystems, they can perform in a wide variety of different roles. Examples here include tactical surveillance, CBRN detection, transport operations, casualty evacuation and deployment as a mobile radio relay stations or effector platform.

The Rheinmetall approach to a Multi-Mission Unmanned Ground Vehicle System envisages the use of three basic components: a tried-and-tested robotic multipurpose vehicle platform, into which a subsystem or system of subsystems is integrated in accordance with user requirements, and finally a command centre, where operations can be planned, controlled, analysed and evaluated.

As an example of its approach to system design, at IDEX 2017 Rheinmetall is presenting a Multi-Mission UGV platform, teamed with the Sensor Command and Control Planning Suite (SC2PS), the Düsseldorf-based Group’s operationally proven command support tool.
