XTEK Restricted and Europe’s main robotics and autonomous methods developer Milrem Robotics showcase ballistic safety for unmanned floor autos ()UGVs at Eurosatory 2022. A key risk in area operations of UGVs is that of important ballistic strikes, leading to disabled belongings. Utilising their skilled data within the area of ballistic safety, XTEK has developed a completely composite fender, with in-built ballistic safety supplied to the THeMIS’ important communications and management methods, vastly lowering the potential for a important strike.

Milrem Robotics and XTEK have been collaborating since 2021. Throughout this time, the European-based robotics and autonomous methods developer Milrem Robotics signed a distribution and upkeep settlement with XTEK and delivered the primary THeMIS Unmanned Floor Automobile (UGV) to the Australian homeland safety specialist. The primary THeMIS has been utilized by XTEK, for trial, analysis, and demonstration functions.


The specifically designed fender offers the lightest safety to NIJ Customary 0108.01 Degree III, masking small arms and most typical rifle threats. Utilising XTEK’s XTclave™ patented consolidation expertise, the totally composite building retains weight to a minimal, lowering the affect on operational loadout for the UGV. Future improvement work is targeted on offering elevated ranges of safety, particularly in opposition to AP and sniper ammunition, while sustaining minimal weight improve to the car.

The THeMIS UGV is an operationally confirmed multi-role UGV with an open structure that permits it to be quickly configured from having a transport perform to being weaponised, performing ordnance disposal, or supporting intelligence operations based on the character of the mission. For the reason that signing of an MoU, the 2 firms have additionally signed an settlement making XTEK the unique distributor of the THeMIS UGV, the Kind-X Robotic Fight Automobile, and Milrem’s Clever Features Integration Package in Australia and New Zealand.
