Nes-Ziona, Israel - G-NIUS will unveil its Hybrid Unmanned Ground Vehicle and its unique robotic suite that enables any vehicle to perform as an unmanned vehicle, at Eurosatory 2014, at the Company's exhibition booth, Israel National Pavilion.
Hybrid Multipurpose Vehicle
The Hybrid Multipurpose Vehicle (HMV) is designed for any unmanned surveillance, intelligence, defense and homeland security mission, increasing safety and reducing personnel requirements in the field. The HMV includes two motor options: an electric motor that enables high level of maneuverability while remaining undetected due to a noiseless ride or an electronic and diesel motor, allowing the vehicle to travel long distances while charging the electric motor's battery.
Both motor options enable the vehicle to carry loads of up to 1.2 tons. The system has a low thermal signature and an advanced control system, as well as a low profile. The system includes an Elbit Systems stabilized weapon station.
Core Unit Robotic Suite
The unique Core Unit is a small footprint robotic suite that allows any ground transportation platform to become an unmanned vehicle - protecting forces while savings in manpower. The suite includes all the systems necessary for defense, intelligence and surveillance missions: a mission computer, navigation unit, video audio system and power distribution unit.
It has a day/night uncooled thermal camera, rear and side cameras and a communication system. It can optionally include an obstacle avoidance system and an optical surveillance sensor, as well as any other sensors, tailored to suit the customer's requirements. Easy to install and cost-effective, the system is immune to extreme temperatures.
G-NIUS CEO, Yoav Hirsch, commented: "We are pleased to launch two new unmanned vehicles solutions for the protection of armed forces. The solutions are suitable for any mission and include capabilities that have been accumulated in more than seven years of operational activities, equivalent to 60,000 man-hours. The Hybrid Multipurpose Vehicle and the Robotic Suite are force multipliers to any UGV platform, and we are witnessing interest in these solutions by various organizations around the world".
