Meet Ironclad (UGV) – BAE Systems

BAE Systems’ Ironclad UGV was unveiled at DSEI 2017. This tracked robot is designed to be small enough to negotiate tight urban environments and maintains the mobility needed for cross-country operation. It can be carried on a trailer or pickup truck or join other vehicles in a convoy. The UGV uses rubber tracks designed in an asymmetric formation that improves mobility in gradients up to 45 degrees. It can operate on silent missions at ranges up to 50 km, relying on battery power. It has an armored hull protecting the vital systems and payload against ballistic threats and blast effects. One of the unique features is the ability to connect two Ironclads, to form a longer UGV that carries up to 500 kg of payload or a patient on a specialized stretcher, freeing up at least two soldiers who would otherwise be needed to carry the casualty.
