Milrem has also expressed its intent to appoint XTEK as its UGV maintenance service provider in Australia and New Zealand, subject to respective representation and service agreements to be negotiated and concluded. 

'Pleasing addition' to value-added services

XTEK managing director Philippe Odouard said: “We are delighted to have confirmed this agreement with Milrem Robotics – a global leader in UGV design.

“This agreement will support our focus on actionable intelligence and innovative solutions in the field, to protect the front line protectors.

“In addition, the maintenance and support services are a pleasing addition to our broader value-added services, with the capabilities already in place to support Milrem Robotics’ UGVs through our established logistics support services.

Sales support

XTEK has extensive experience and expertise in unmanned vehicle distribution, maintenance and value-added services.

The company’s established maintenance facilities include a Logistics Engineering Business Unit based in Canberra, where a pool of technicians and trainers with extensive Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) robot maintenance experience will provide maintenance for Milrem UGVs.

XTEK’s Canberra facility also provides software development and engineering design services which can further support sales.

The company plans to leverage its Adelaide Manufacturing Centre and unique XTclave™ technology for novel ballistic protection design and other engineering and manufacturing services for Milrem Robotics’ UGVs.

Development of related products

XTEK will also explore opportunities with local industry and research partners in Australia and New Zealand to achieve the participation of such sovereign industry partners in the development of Milrem Robotics’ UGV’s and related products and services.

Milrem Robotics

The robotics and autonomous systems developer’s flagship product, the THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle, has been delivered to nine countries, of which seven are NATO members, including France, Norway, the UK and the US.

Milrem Robotics recently launched the Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle, intended to support mechanised units.

Milrem is also the leader of a consortium picked by the European Commission’s European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP) to develop a European standardised unmanned ground system (UGS).

The project, titled iMUGS, a modular and scalable architecture for hybrid manned-unmanned systems will be developed to standardise a European wide ecosystem for aerial and ground platforms, command, control and communication equipment, sensors, payloads and algorithms.
