Milrem partners with Raytheon UK, Advanced Electronics Company and IGG Eselsan Systrems on Themis vehicle
"The success of Milrem solutions in the Middle East, Asia and the U.S. is a big proof that research and development in a small country like Estonia is very possible and at a very high level," Margus Tsahkna, Estonia's defense minister, said.
During a ceremonial unveiling, the companies showcased the joint product of IGG Aselsan and Milrem, which features Aselsan's SARP remote weapons station. Themis is designed to carry a police team, up to 750 kilogram in weight and drive for 10 hours on one tank of fuel. It can also be used as a medevac, UAV platform for landing and charging and a sensor array.
"Represented are three stands with three different companies [which] shows exactly how adaptable the first fully modular hybrid unmanned ground vehicle Themis [is]," Kuldar Väärsi, CEO at Milrem, said. "One platform can be equipped with specific loads required for the armies of the region.”
