Leica Geosystems, Milrem Partner to Develop Unmanned Ground Vehicle
By combining Milrem’s Multiscope unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) and Leica’s Pegasus:Two mobile mapping-sensor platform, the Pegasus:Multiscope provides faster, cost-effective, and flexible technology designed to survey difficult terrain in real time. With its low ground pressure, the UGV can traverse any type of terrain, including mud, sand, or snow. When combined with the Pegasus:Two’s multiple sensor options, the applications are unlimited.
”We live in an ever-changing world where difficult terrain can prohibit our abilities to advance. We can now overcome these challenge with the Pegasus:Multiscope, enabling mobile mapping to be carried out in places unreachable by traditional vehicles,” says Stuart Woods, vice president of Leica Geosystems Geospatial Solutions Division.
“The Pegasus:Multiscope proves how far UGVs have advanced to help significantly increase efficiency in a range of commercial applications,” says Kuldar Väärsi, CEO, Milrem AS. “We’re thrilled to partner with Leica Geosystems for the first product in the Multiscope modular UGV series and to demonstrate how our combined technology offers reduced labor costs, faster results, and much higher reliability than existing options.”
Powered by a diesel generator, Li-ion battery packs, and graphene ultracapacitors, this machine can run for up to 10 hours of nominal work. Other features of the Pegasus:Multiscope include:
- Maximum speeds: 15 to 22 mph
- Zero turning radius
- Weight: 1,985 pounds
- Payload: 1,655 pounds
