Navantia and Urovesa will collaborate to develop unmanned ground systems
The SERT reconnaissance system can perform surveillance, detection and target identification functions in both day and night conditions or in conditions of reduced visibility.
Navantia and Urovesa have announced, within the framework of the UNVEX exhibition, the signing of an agreement to develop and commercialize unmanned ground systems based on platforms developed by Urovesa that will integrate Navantia's Ground Exploration and Reconnaissance System (SERT), and with the technological support of ELTA in terms of robotization solutions.
With this agreement, the companies combine their capabilities to achieve synergies and put on the market, in the short term, operational solutions for border surveillance and ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) missions.
The agreement is the result of a rigorous joint analysis in which the future needs for this type of systems and the opportunities in both the domestic and export markets have been analyzed.
In a first phase, the agreement foresees the development of a first solution based on a VAMTAC vehicle, equipped with all the necessary capabilities to carry out surveillance missions autonomously, and to make it available to the Army's Experimental Brigade (BRIEX 2035) for its operational evaluation.
The SERT reconnaissance system can perform surveillance, detection and target identification functions in both day and night conditions or in conditions of reduced visibility. Likewise, and thanks to the integrated positioning sensors, it has the capacity to geographically locate targets with extraordinary precision, automating the process, reducing mission time and improving the effectiveness of the observers.
