DSEI 2021: IAI Unveils REX MK II: A new multi-mission unmanned land vehicle
The new operational system, part of IAI’s family of unmanned ground systems, will support ground forces in the field while minimizing threats to human lives
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is excited to unveil the REX MK II, the newest unmanned land platform, intended to keep troops out of harms way in complex circumstances. The REX MK II, already sold to customers worldwide, is an unmanned land vehicle adapted to a range of ground missions with advanced maneuverability and ability to carry a load of 1.3 tons. The new hybrid electric platform, all-wheel drive, supports combat forces in gathering intelligence, providing logistical support, and helps execute remote attacks. The vehicle is land-based, autonomous with command-and-control capabilities, or by a single operator through wireless communication. The system will be presented at the DSEI exhibition in London, this week.
The multi-mission REX MK II is intended to support infantry ground forces in various stages of fighting. This includes providing logistical assistance to troops by carrying munition supplies, critical medical equipment, water, and food, as well as evacuating injured personnel on stretchers. The system can also gather intelligence through a situation-awareness-system that incorporates electro-optical sensors and radar.
