Milrem Robotics has been awarded a contract to supply the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces with three THeMIS unmanned ground vehicles.

The company will supply Japan with THeMIS UGVs configured for various tasks, including supply transportation and intelligence gathering. The vehicles are equipped with Milrem’s Intelligent Functions Kit (MIFIK), enabling them to execute on- and off-road operations independently. MIFIK allows UGV operators to plan missions using waypoint navigation and set en-route vehicle behaviours.

MIFIK is used strictly for vehicle mobility.

THeMIS UGVs were selected by the Japan Ministry of Defense as a target of the newly introduced Rapid Acquisition Program. Milrem Robotics will provide maximum support for Japan to be equipped as soon as possible.

THeMIS UGVs have already been adopted in 16 countries, including eight NATO countries: Estonia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S. THeMIS UGVs are also assisting Ukrainian soldiers in the war with Russia.
