UAV married to UGV at AWE 18

The British Army’s Armoured Trials and Development Unit is testing unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) together with unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) deployment from the Milrem UGV. Threod Systems KX-4 LE Titan UAV is tethered to Milrems vehicle for external power source therefore information collection from air is not limited by aerial platform battery capacity.

Integrating two unmanned systems together will give the operators a good overview of the battlefield without deploying manpower to hazardous areas. Milrems UGV can carry Threod Systems UAV to observation point through harsh environment autonomously while operators can do their job safely back in the camp or safe area.
