AGEMA Unmanned Ground Vehicle
The AGEMA is a modular multi-mission UGV designed to support infantry and special forces units operating in both mounted and dismounted roles.
With rugged construction and amphibious capabilities, it can operate in a variety of challenging off-road environments, including muddy swamps, river and streams, and dense jungle.
The versatile UGV can be operated remotely or with AI-powered autonomy, and is able to undertake challenging missions even in GPS-denied environments. It can be programmed to follow troops at a specified distance, or lead a group of soldiers as a reconnaissance and force projection capability. Able to conquer even the most extreme terrain, it is ideal for providing actionable intelligence and offensive capability while keeping personnel out of harm’s way.
Available in 8×8 or 6×6 drivetrains, the AGEMA is simple to operate from a command vehicle or via a portable GCS, and features extremely low support and maintenance requirements.
Watch the AGEMA UGV in action:
The platform-agnostic UGV provides secure interoperability with third-party systems. It can be equipped with a wide variety of payloads and technologies to support a range of mission profiles, including:
Fire Support & Remote Weapons Stations
The AGEMA can be equipped with a variety of remotely controlled weapons systems, including cannons from 12.7mm to 30mm, as well as anti-tank missiles such as Javelin, Kornet and Sparrow.
The powerful UGV can be used to ease the burden of troops by carrying ammunition, rations, heavy weapons, radio equipment and more. It can also be deployed for use as a medical evacuation platform or mobile theatre.
AGEMA can be fitted with ground-penetrating radar, explosive and ordnance chemical detector sensors, and other equipment that allows IED and route clearance patrols to be conducted without endangering personnel.
Surveillance and Monitoring
A wide variety of cameras and imaging payloads can be fitted to the AGEMA to aid in ISR, mapping, search and rescue, and other missions where enhanced situational awareness is of paramount importance.
Drone Launch and Support
Fixed-wing drones can be skid-launched from the AGEMA, and the platform can also support persistent rotary drone operations via a tethered system.

Alakran Mortar Carrier System
Platform-agnostic mortar system with digital fire control
Alakran is the world’s lightest mobile mortar system, providing a modular platform-agnostic capability that can be fitted to a wide range of UGVs and 4×4 land vehicles.
The 81, 82 or 120mm mortar system features a fully digital fire control system (FCS) that provides automatic aiming as well as re-aiming after every shot. A patented barrel cooling system allows firing of up to 50 rounds at a pace of 4 rounds per minute without overheating.
The versatile Alakran platform has been combat-proven in a wide range of challenging environments, including forested and desert terrain.
Skylock Counter-UAS System
Skylock is a portable counter-drone system designed to be used with our AGEMA all-terrain UGV.
Featuring 360-degree multi-layer protection, it utilizes sophisticated AI algorithms together with one of the industry’s largest counter-drone databases to provide real-time detection and classification of rogue UAS threats.
The versatile anti-drone solution includes fully customizable command and control and can be easily integrated with third-party systems. It can be equipped with multiple drone neutralization methods, including RF jamming as well as kinetic capabilities such as remote weapons stations.
Stealth Remote Weapons Station
The Stealth Remote Weapons Station (RWS) is a stabilized gun platform that can be easily installed on UGVs and USVs.
Able to accommodate 12.7 to 20mm machine guns, 40mm grenade launchers, or missile launchers, it is designed to NATO safety standards and is ideal for asymmetric warfare, force protection and other land and naval operations.
The lightweight carbon fiber platform features a space-saving design and significantly reduces radar footprint. The complete system includes a fully stabilized RWS, fire control system with ballistic computer, sighting system, and object tracker. Specially designed algorithms are included for advanced tracking and identification of low-profile, low-contrast and fast-moving objects.
Warblefly Loitering Munitions
The Warblefly is an intelligent loitering munition designed to provide a last-mile strike capability from land or sea. The system weighs less than 20 kg and can be set up in less than 3 minutes by a single operator, and can also be launched from our AGEMA UGV.
The munition features a flight time of up to 30 minutes, and can loiter silently to gather real-time video intelligence before the strike.
The Warblefly can be directed to return safely to the operator if necessary, making it reusable and cost-effective. A variety of warheads are available, including high-explosive, anti-tank, thermobaric, and inert training rounds.
Autonomous USV Conversion System
Our autonomous conversion system allows users to realise the benefits of autonomous surface vessels and maximise the capabilities of existing fleets without the extra costs of purchasing dedicated boats and compatible parts. The marine autopilot and remote control systems allow for unmanned capabilities without sacrificing the manned usage of the vessel.
With our autonomous technology, almost any vessel can be converted into a USV. Users can remotely upload and manage mission plans and waypoints, and control throttle and steering as well as third party sensors and systems.
The conversion kit is payload-, sensor- and propulsion system-agnostic, allowing integration and remote control of a wide variety of capabilities such as EO/IR imaging, radar, sonar, weapons systems and towed decoys. System architecture can be customized to the user’s exact mission requirements. Communication options include encrypted IP Mesh RF datalink, 4G LTE and backup SATCOM.
We can provide our standard C2 Pro portable ground control station, containerised C2-20 GCS, or a custom integrated solution based around your existing command and control facilities. Our GCS capabilities allow users to plan missions with a simple point-and-click interface, taking advantage of obstacle detection and collision avoidance with radar, AIS and EO/IR integration. Operators can also take over from autonomous operations and gain manual remote control at any time.
Our maritime autonomy system is ideal for a wide range of demanding applications, including ISTAR, port security, border protection, mine counter-measures, and anti-submarine warfare.
Autonomous Maritime & Defense USV
Our USVs can be equipped with a range of payloads to meet both commercial and military maritime requirements, providing effective force multipliers for your fleet and removing human operators from dull, dirty and dangerous environments.
Single vessels or fleets can be operated from one or more control stations on shore or on board a mothership, providing flexible deployment for missions such as ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), force projection, marine surveying and search and rescue.
