QinetiQ and Pratt and Miller partner on the Robotic Combat Vehicle
QinetiQ North America and Pratt and Miller Defense are partnering on the Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) programme.
QinetiQ North America (QNA) and Pratt & Miller will submit a variant of the Expeditionary Modular Autonomous Vehicle (EMAV) tailored to the Robotic Combat Vehicle program’s specific requirements, say the firms.
“The Robotic Combat Vehicle submission will leverage QNA’s modular open architecture unmanned ground vehicle control systems integrated with Pratt & Miller’s advanced mobility platform. The resulting system is a robust non-developmental solution demonstrated to fulfill the Government’s required attributes. The RCV base platform has been proven through direct warfighter experimentation to be agile, powerful, and highly reliable.”
“QinetiQ North America has focused on fielding advanced technical solutions to help our military counter emerging threats for over 25 years,” stated QNA’s President Jeff Yorsz.
“We are excited to team with a company that has equal passion of providing groundbreaking real-world solutions to our warfighters.”
Pratt & Miller Defense say it specialises in the development and manufacturing of advanced vehicles and systems for the demanding requirements of the military.
Matt Carroll, Pratt & Miller CEO, said in a release:
“Our combined cultures of innovation and expertise in supporting the warfighter will provide the US Army with a mature world class solution for the RCV program.”
