Israel Aerospace industries (IAI) is unveiling the RoBattle unmanned, heavy duty, highly maneuverable combat and support robotic system at the Eurosatory 2016 international air land defense and security exhibition in Paris this week. The system is designed to be integrated with tactical forces in mobile, dismounted operations and support a wide range of missions including intelligence, surveillance and armed reconnaissance; convoy protection, decoy, and ambush and attack.

Based on IAI's cutting edge technology, RoBattle, the company's newest member of the family of unmanned ground robotic systems, is equipped with a modular "robotic kit" comprised of vehicle control, navigation, RT mapping and autonomy, sensors and mission payloads. The system can be operated autonomously in several levels and configured with wheels or tracks, to address the relevant operational needs. Operators can equip RoBattle with different payloads including manipulator arms, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) sensors and radars, and remotely controlled weapons.

"The RoBattle system is based on IAI's vast experience and heritage in development and manufacturing of unmanned systems including unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). With the modular ‘robotic kit' methodology, designed to meet specific customer requirements, RoBattle is one of the most advanced combat, maneuvering, ground robotics in the market." said Meir Shabtai, IAI's Deputy general manager of ground robotics systems. "The RoBattle will become a significant player in the ground robotics market. It presents advanced technologies and capabilities that can close the operational gaps in the future battlefield challenges. We are looking forward to all opportunities in the market."
