Rheinmetall Is Building Unmanned AI ATVs For Hardcore Military Missions

Headquartered in Düsseldorf, Rheinmetall AG is a leading German defense firm that produces everything from stun grenades to tanks. And though the company already produces a line of autonomous unmanned ground vehicles — or “A-UGVs”— Rheinmetall has now expanded its range of remotely-piloted go-anywhere amphibious vehicles with the Mission Master SP and Mission Master XT.

The Mission Master SP is a low-profile eight-wheeled A-UGV built to mitigate danger to on-the-ground military personnel and features a low-signature electric motor for stealthy recon applications. Even more noteworthy is the Mission Master XT. Designed and constructed in Canada, this modular and customizable A-UGV boasts a diesel-powered engine with a nearly 470-mile range and a supplementary set of Lithium-ion batteries that enable the XT to silently operate for up to six hours. Able to climb a 35-degree grade and offering world-class extreme terrain mobility, the optionally manned and fully-amphibious vehicle sports a continuous self-inflating tire system that can contend with holes and punctures as large as 2cm, and can traverse ice, mud, and sand, and even float on water while carrying its entire 1.1-tonne payload capacity.
