Abu Dhabi-based Edge Group entity Milrem Robotics has signed a contract to supply 40 THeMIS unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) and 20 tracked robotic combat vehicles (RCVs) to the UAE Ministry of Defence.

The agreement, which represents the world’s largest combat robotics program, was announced at the Unmanned Systems Exhibition and Conference (Umex) at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).

Under the terms of the contract, Milrem Robotics, Europe’s leading developer of robotics and autonomous systems, will lead an experimentation and testing program to integrate unmanned ground capabilities into the UAE Armed Forces arsenal. THeMIS UGVs and tracked RCVs are equipped with advanced autonomy features, third-party payloads and high-quality communication solutions.

“Edge Group’s investment in Milrem Robotics has opened new avenues for us in the region, further expanding our international growth and market presence,” said Kuldar Vaarsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics.

The first operational test program will be followed by a larger order once completed.

“Initiating the world’s largest combat robotics program with the UAE Ministry of Defense not only demonstrates the competitive advantage of our solutions, but also highlights the strategic value of incorporating advanced robotic systems into the force structure, improving thus its combat capabilities and operational efficiency,” said Vaarsi. .

The contract includes the supply of tracked RCVs with MK44 30mm guns, THeMIS combat units equipped with M230LF 30mm remote weapon stations and with indirect fire systems, and THeMIS observation units with radar and camera systems, including gunshot detection capabilities. Milrem Robotics will also provide comprehensive training and supervision to ensure that relevant personnel achieve a satisfactory level of skill in the operation of combat unmanned ground systems.
