Australia to Invest $2.4 Million in New UGV

Australia signed a $2.4 USD million contract to Cyborg Dynamics Engineering to develop a lightweight, semi-autonomous unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) for the armed forces.

According to the defense department, the Brisbane-based company will integrate various Australian technologies into the modular, robotic platform to help improve the army’s fire support capabilities and ensure better protection of soldiers.

The UGV will also be equipped with artificial intelligence target recognition capability and advanced driving technologies so only one soldier needs to operate the vehicle.

Since the new equipment is robot-assisted, the defense department says that the UGV will enhance soldier capabilities, lethality, and reduce operational risk.
