QinetiQ North America and Milrem have introduced a modular, hybrid unmanned ground vehicle the companies designed to help soldiers perform their missions on the battlefield.
Titan is built toÂ incorporate Milremâ€™s Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System for military applications along withÂ QinetiQâ€™s tactical robot controller and robotic applique kit, Milrem said Monday.
The vehicle is built toÂ comply with requirements of the U.S. Armyâ€™s Squad Multipurpose Equipment Transport Initiative, which seeks autonomous vehicles that can haul soldier gear, charge additional devices, fit in the back of a helicopter and transport sensors and weaponry.
Titan alsoÂ is designed to accommodateÂ different structures onto its middle vehicular platformÂ forÂ operations in areas such as such as rescue, transport, combat and reconnaissance.
Jon Hastie, a product manager at QinetiQ North America, said the vehicle is intended to helpÂ reduce workloads for troops and keep them safe.
The vehicle will be put on exhibit during the AUSA 2016 in Washington, D.C. Monday through Wednesday.
