Details: The demonstration trials featured products from seven manufacturers: Terra Traverse, Robotic Complexes, Keep Robotics, Trident Technologies, the Ukrainian research and production company Unmanned Technologies, Tencore and another unnamed company.

The developments are at various stages of completion. One model has already completed all procedures and received approval for use, while others are still in progress. The purpose of the demonstration trials is to bring together the experience of the military and manufacturers so that designers can get feedback and improve their products in real combat situations.

“During the evacuation of the injured there is a significant risk to those carrying out the evacuation. Once we were running a machine gun, and on the way out, we had eleven wounded. Everyone survived, but if you evacuate one injured person and you end up with 11, it is clear that this is a problem, therefore ground robot complexes must be involved in the evacuation.

The requirements for such a robot include maneuverability, communication range, battery life, simplicity and ease of use, carrying capacity and costs. Regarding the models presented, there were comments on maneuverability and communication,” said Oleksandr Yabchanka, senior lieutenant of the Honor Company of the Da Vinci Wolves Battalion, who was present at the trials.

“We were looking for platforms that could be adapted for medical evacuation. We met manufacturers and told them about this problem. Brave1 also joined this work and through them we found many manufacturers. As a result of these searches, systems began to appear on the market, which we saw during the trials,” said Deputy Minister of Strategic Industry of Ukraine Hanna Hvozdii.
