WASHINGTON — General Dynamics Land Systems debuted its new medium-class robotic fight car — Tracked Robot 10-Ton or TRX — on the Association of the U.S. Army’s annual convention, which got here collectively utilizing AI-enhanced design and light-weight supplies.
The 10-ton weight class car has a light-weight chassis that may carry rather a lot through the use of some superior design applied sciences that the corporate has developed with companions in addition to some distinctive manufacturing applied sciences and superior supplies, based on GDLS.
The platform is designed to fulfill quite a lot of vital missions similar to direct and oblique fires, autonomous resupply, advanced impediment breaching, counter-unmanned aerial methods, digital warfare and reconnaissance.
The robotic can conduct semi-autonomous operations and is quick sufficient to maintain up with high-speed maneuver formations just like the Stryker Brigade Combat Team and the Armored BCT, GDLS mentioned.
In GD’s digital exhibit sales space at AUSA, the TRX represents an oblique fires configuration that showcases its partnership with drone-maker Aerovironment. The RCV sports activities a big payload consisting of quite a lot of Switchblade loitering munitions.
In 2018, GDLS and Aerovironment introduced its partnership at AUSA, revealing an armored reconnaissance car for the Marine Corps competitors with Switchblade and Shrike 2 unmanned aerial methods integrated. The aim was to do one thing comparable for the Army’s Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV).
GD can be offering footage of its RCV paired with a manned car on the Platoon- or Company-level at its digital sales space.
While the Army didn’t choose GDLS to construct medium-class RCV prototypes for use to find out the feasibility of integrating unmanned autos into floor fight operations, the corporate is ready for when the Army strikes ahead with a contest to amass RCVs as soon as it has outlined necessities by way of experimentation over the subsequent a number of years, based on firm officers.
