WASHINGTON, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- QinetiQ North America and Milrem debuted their Titan unmanned ground vehicle this week at the 2016 Association of the United States Army event.
The first-of-its-kind, modular, hybrid vehicle was co-developed by the two companies, QinetiQ said in a statement.
The Titan unites Milrem's Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System, or THeMIS, a vehicle made for military applications, with QinetiQ's Tactical Robot Controller and Robotic Appliqué Kit robotic control technology.
As a multimission vehicle platform, Titan can perform complex and hazardous tasks on the battlefield that are currently undertaken by troops.
The Titan improves troop safety while providing high load-carrying capability and off-road mobility and can operate in a manned or unmanned modes.
