Estonia’s Milrem Robotics has unveiled its new robotic fight system at the IDEX 2021 present in Abu Dhabi.
For the primary time, the corporate has showcased its Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle.
The Type-X RCV is designed to assist mechanized models and can develop into an clever wingman to essential battle tanks and infantry combating automobiles. It will likely be able to taking up essentially the most harmful duties and positions, leading to decrease lethality danger.

The robotic fight automobile will be fitted with a cannon as much as 50mm therefore it should present equal or overmatching firepower and tactical utilization to a unit outfitted with Infantry Fighting automobiles.
“The Type-X provides means to breach enemy defensive positions with minimal risk to own troops. If an RCV is lost, its replacement will become purely a logistical nuance, however, lives will have been saved,” mentioned Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics.
Milrem Robotics’ RCV will likely be outfitted with clever features resembling follow-me, waypoint navigation and impediment detection. Artificial Intelligence will even be a part of the algorithms. However, the true innovation will likely be Milrem’s completely new and revolutionary strategy to permit remote-controlled operations at greater speeds.
The automobile’s most pace is 80 km/h on paved roads and 50 km/h off-road. The low weight of 12 tons of the Type-X and excessive energy with environment friendly energy administration present a superior terrain functionality and its low peak of two.2 m and a rear engine present low visible and warmth signature.
To create the Type-X Milrem Robotics utilized its information gained from growing its THeMIS Unmanned Ground Vehicle, meant to assist dismounted troops, that has been acquired by ten international locations, together with seven NATO members: France, Norway, the UK, Germany, Estonia, and the US.
