POTD: Milrem Robotics

    In Today’s Photo we take a look at Milrem Robotics, and perhaps the future of the battlefield.

    Above you can see it deployed for the first time with the FN Herstal DeFNder Medium cupola, with a 12.7mm HMG.

    Milrem Robotics’ was established in 2013 and their main focus is manufacturing unmanned ground vehicles for defence and security forces, commercial and industrial clients and rescue services.

    From FN Herstal.

    The deFNder® Remote Weapon Stations provide optimized remote firing capability day and night while keeping the operator completely under armor protection. The deFNder® Medium is the medium weight remote weapon station of FN Herstal RWS family.

    It can integrate all FN Herstal machine guns up to .50 cal, including the unique FN® M3R machine gun with high firing rate of 1,100 RPM. Its modular architecture and capabilities can be tailored to meet various self-defense or collective missions.

    There are other more peaceful applications for the robot as well.
