Teledyne FLIR has announced its participation in the United States Army‘s Light Equipment Carrier competition.

According to Defense News, the American firm has unveiled its proposal to the public for the first time during the Association of the US Army annual conference, introducing a groundbreaking six-wheeled Multi-Mission Robotic Vehicle (M2RV).

Teledyne FLIR claimed that this cutting-edge creation aligns perfectly with the US Army’s light equipment carrier requirements during the event.

The M2RV: A Game-Changing Advancement in Military Robotics

The M2RV boasts an impressive array of features that make it a formidable contender in the competition.

With a cargo space spanning 38 square feet (3.5 square meters) and a remarkable payload capacity of over 2,600 pounds (1,179 kilograms), this robotic vehicle is poised to revolutionize the way the US Army transports essential equipment on the battlefield.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the proposed M2RV is its dual payload system. The vehicle incorporates a 10-pound (4.5 kilograms) quadcopter drone named the R80D SkyRaider and a 280-HDEP surveillance system mounted at the back.
