ITALY. The European leading robotics and autonomous systems developer Milrem Robotics demonstrated their autonomous THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) to the Italian Army this week and launched a new program to assess and analyze the implementation of intelligent systems into the army’s doctrine.
During the robotics and autonomous systems (RAS) capability spotlight last week the company presented their THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) enhanced with Milrem’s Intelligent Functions Integration Kit (MIFIK) that features autonomous functions such as waypoint navigation and follow me.
Together with the live demonstration, Milrem Robotics also launched their Intelligent Systems Implementation Analysis and Assessment (IS-IA²) program designed to help armed forces implement intelligent systems into their capabilities.
According to the company, IS-IA² is comprised of three steps: analyzing the requirements of the armed forces, implementing the tailor-made RAS solution with the integration of provided and/or customized technologies for the armed forces by the local industry, and evaluating the outcome.
