ST Kinetics unveils new weaponised Probot UGV Unmanned Ground Vehicle…
At , the local Company ST Kinetics, the land systems division of ST Engineering unveils its new weaponised UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle) fitted with ADDER remote weapon station armed with a 7.62mm machine gun. The Probot is based on the design of the Israeli Probot UGV developed and manufactured by the Israeli Company Roboteam.
The 7.62mm caliber machine gun is integrated with the ADDER weapon station with advanced fire control system that includes sighting system and video tracker for accurate target engagement.
The Probot is controlled via the ROCU7 (Ruggedized Operator Control Unit – 7” Screen), a generic, hand-held controller that enables a single operator to control several unmanned systems with one device. Windows 7 based, the ROCU-7 provides complete operational and tactical control, overall mission management and enhanced force coordination. The robot can be controlled at maxim distance in LOS (line-of-sight) condition.
The Probot can run at a maximum speed of 8.2 km/h and can be used up to 8 hours thanks to rechargeable battery. It can be used for different types of missions, and can be easily configured for MEDEVAC (medical evacuation) operations with specific carriage, in this case, the robot has a weight of 450 kg, and 215 kg without carriage. The maximum payload of the Probot is 750 kg.

ST Kinetics, the land systems and specialty vehicles division of Singapore Technologies (ST) Engineering, revealed at the Singapore Airshow 2018 exhibition a weaponised unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) designed to perform reconnaissance and combat missions in support of dismounted troops or armoured fighting vehicles (AFVs).
Called the Weaponised Probot, the UGV is based on Israeli-firm Roboteam’s Probot (Professional Robot) logistics and medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) platform. ST Kinetics engineers have taken advantage of the Probot’s modular 215 kg base chassis – measuring 1.4 m long, 1.21 m wide, and 0.58 m high – which can carry a large payload capacity of 750 kg, to integrate its Adder RMG remote control weapon station (RCWS).
According to ST Kinetics’ specifications, the Weaponised Probot has a maximum speed of 8.2 km/h and is capable of negotiating stairs and other challenging terrain in tight spaces, making it particularly suited for urban environments. A 48 V mil-spec rechargeable battery provides up to 8 hours of operation.
ST Kinetics is quoting a control range of 500 m, with the vehicle controlled via the joystick-type ruggedised operator control unit-1 (ROCU-1) when performing basic manoeuvres within the operator’s direct line-of-sight. However, the unit does not display the video feed from the vehicle’s optical sensors and is unable to command the Adder RMG RCWS; full functionality and non-line-of-sight command is provided by the ROCU-7 control and display unit, which has been customised with proprietary control, navigation (with manual, semi-autonomous, and ‘follow me’ modes), targeting, and tracking algorithms developed by the company’s engineers.
The Adder RMG, which weighs less than 150 kg, is equipped with a sighting and video tracking system that is claimed to offer a high hit probability regardless of whether the platform or the target is stationary or moving, traversing 126° in the azimuth and -10 to 45° in elevation.

SINGAPORE AIRSHOW :-
ST Kinetics unveils its Jaeger 6 UGV Unmanned Ground Vehicle…
ST Kinetics, the land systems subdivision of ST Engineering, an integrated defence & engineering group based in Singapore, unveils its new development of UGV Unmanned Ground Vehicle at Singapore AirShow 2018, with the Jaeger 6, a 6×6 wheeled All-Terrain UGV. Configurable for a wide range of missions, the Jaeger UGV can be used for a wide range of applications as fire support, logistics supply, reconnaissance surveillance and target acquisition.
The  Defense Company ST Kinetics of Singapore offers more than a decade of experience in unmanned mobility development with man-portable robots for surveillance and Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Explosive (CBRNE) operations, as well as robotic wheeled and tracked vehicles.
The Jaeger 6 is the latest development of ST Kinetics about UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle) technology. Based on a proven commercial skid-steer chassis, the Jaeger 6 can be outfitted with a wide range of payloads to address specific mission requirements. Jaeger is also equipped with proprietary control algorithms that enable it to operate semi-autonomously with a high degree of safety, making it a suitable alternative for labor intensive missions such as perimeter security and logistics support.
The Jaeger 6 can be operated by only one man via a control unit connected via a Wi-Fi connection, but the system can also be connected through to an encrypted 4G mobile network.
The Jaeger 6 is similar to the Squad Mission Support System (SMSS) developed by the American Company Lockheed Martin. The Jaeger is also available in a 8×8 configuration, but only the 6×6 version is ready for production.
The roof of the Jaeger 6 can be fitted with a range of accessories, including weapon, robotic or sensor systems. The Jaeger has a length of 2.5 m , a width of 1.5 m and an height of 0.85 m. The gross weight in the standard 6×6 configuration is approximately 750 kg with a maximum payload of 250 kg. It can be operated in standard use during 24 hours and 4 hours in silent mode.
The Jaeger 6 is electrically powered with onboard diesel generator and charge alternator to recharge the batteries that offers extending endurance up to 48 hours. It can run at a maximum speed of 16 km/h.
