RoBattle, a new, heavy duty unmanned ground vehicle for combat support from Israel Aerospace Industries is making its debut next week.
The RoBattle, to be displayed at the Eurosatory conference and exhibition in France next week, is designed to be integrated with tactical forces in mobile, dismounted operations.
IAI said it is suitable for intelligence, surveillance and armed reconnaissance missions as well as convoy protection, decoy, ambush and attack.
"The RoBattle system is based on IAI's vast experience and heritage in development and manufacturing of unmanned systems, including unmanned ground vehicles," Meir Shabtai, IAI deputy general manager of ground robotics systems said. "With the modular 'robotic kit' methodology, designed to meet specific customer requirements, RoBattle is one of the most advanced combat, maneuvering, ground robotics in the market."
RoBattle is equipped with a modular robotic kit comprised of vehicle control, navigation, RT mapping and autonomy, sensors and mission payloads. It can be operated autonomously in several levels and configured with wheels or tracks.
IAI said it can be equipped with a number of different payloads, manipulator arms, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sensors and radar, and remotely controlled weapons.
