BAE SYSTEMS NEW UNMANNED GROUND VEHICLE TAKES ON DANGEROUS JOBS
Ironclad is small enough to negotiate tight urban environments, but maintains the mobility needed to handle extreme crosscountry terrain. It can also be fitted to carry out reconnaissance, combat and casualty evacuation roles. It is also protected against blast and small arms fire to increase mission survivability.”
Each Ironclad is built with a hardware interface that allows the different mission fits to be attached easily. This connection supplies both power and command from the main vehicle chassis, which houses the battery and a two-way remote control unit. The chassis is designed so that hardware needed for autonomous capability can be added at a later stage.
