MSI-Defence Systems Limited, the developer of weapon and underwater systems and the European robotics and autonomous system developer Milrem Robotics have joined forces to produce an unmanned kinetic C-UAV capabilities.
The unmanned C-UAS platforms will be exhibited at DSEI 2021 in London on 13-14 September.
They will aid in countering mini-UAV, loitering munitions or other small difficult to detect airborne targets and be capable of carrying payloads from 7.62 to 30 mm.
It will also be able to find and engage larger air threats as well as ground targets, even if armoured. All without the operator being exposed to the threats.
“MSI-DSL and Milrem are committed to providing 'cutting edge' capabilities to the operator providing a highly deployable system with unique lethality and survivability. The autonomous nature of the system enables the operator to Sense, Identify, Decide and Effect over a wide area without placing the operator in areas of undue risk,” said Russell Gregory, Head of Strategy, Industrial Relations and Market Development at MSI-DSL.
Captain Jüri Pajuste, Defence Research and Development Director at Milrem Robotics, added that the use of drones and loitering munition has made low-level conflicts more lethal and these systems would counter these new threats, ultimately to reduce loss of life”.
