MBDA and Milrem Robotics will present the announced at Eurosatory 2018 unmanned tracked vehicle with a turret for anti-tank at the IDEX.

In the joint venture MBDA, the IMPACT (Integrated MMP Precision Attack Combat Turret) system was integrated into the unmanned ground vehicle Milrem Robotics Themis, which is equipped with two MMP anti-tank systems, the 5th generation and a machine gun for self-defense.

The land for the battle-designed system to be controlled remotely. Soldiers can use it while remaining at a safe distance and use a wireless or networked connection. The system has a low heat and noise signature so that it may go unnoticed until the completion of his mission.

The ThemIs UGV (Tracked hybrid Infantry Modular System) is a fully modular diesel-electric unmanned ground vehicle, which can be operated up to ten hours with a full tank, including up to 1.5 hours in the silent mode. He has a top speed of 22 km / h, can carry a payload of 750 kg. It can be operated with a direct view or cameras remotely. With an autonomy kit operation is possible without direct intervention.

MMP (Missile Moyenne Portée) is an anti-tank missile system of the latest generation of MBDA, which has been developed according to the requirements of modern conflicts. The "fire-and-forget" missile has a range of four kilometers and more with a dual-mode seeker (uncooled infrared and visible color channels). Bidirectional data connection allows the use mode "man-in-the-loop" and the damage assessment through real-time video. The MMP-operator can combat such hidden targets or targets outside the line of sight with high accuracy and minimize the risk of collateral damage. The multifunctional warhead can be effective against armored targets (including reactive armor), against unarmored targets and against infrastructure.

250 kg IMPACT Tower is electrically powered and designed for integration on light armored vehicles. Day / night sensors are used for reconnaissance and fire control. As armament are two MMP-tank missiles and a 7.62 mm machine gun for self-protection. The remote control allows the guidance of the fire campaign from a position (for example in a vehicle), which is protected against enemy fire and weathering.
