Cobham has participated in the British Army’s 2018 Army Warfighting Experiment Autonomous Warrior.

The four-week exercise is intended to help enhance the army’s technology and military capability in land environments. The exercise was launched by the UK Government in June.

Autonomous Warrior involved combat trials, experimentation and simulation with prototype unmanned aerial, unmanned ground vehicles and supporting software.

During the exercise, carried out in November and December, Cobham’s Amulet unmanned air system (UAS) was tested by soldiers and engineers in harsh simulated combat environments.

In a statement, Cobham said: “As the exercise now concludes, we’re proud to continue supporting the UK Armed Forces in innovating the next generation of equipment to keep our soldiers from harm.”

Fitted with a ground penetrating radar, Cobham’s covert and remote Amulet UAS is designed to help increase the pace of a minefield breath operation.

“It provides the operator with a map of the threats as and when they are detected using a graphical information system.”

When compared to handheld search, the UAS provides the ability to perform detection of buried landmines, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and emplaced explosive ordnance from a standoff distance, keeping the soldier from harm’s way.
