CivTAK in Emergency Response

The power and flexibility of this remarkable hand-held system is astonishing. It was designed to enhance Command and Control at tactical levels by integrating communications, computation, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, exploiting leading edge technology...


The ability to remain functional, without requiring excessive maintenance or repair, when faced with the challenges of normal operation over its design lifetime.

Proteus Amphibian

Light Tactical Mobility Platform (LTMP)

Interesting to see the release of the LTMP light and medium PQQs and hoping that this quick-fire opportunity reflects lessons learned. A potential opportunity to formally present the capabilities of our various AATV and...

Load Carrying

The ability to carry heavy loads safely and efficiently, including adequate load carrying space, restraints and handling provision.

Proteus UGV

Low-Profile Proteus UGV

Announcing a routine optional enhancement to our Proteus UGV body profile, removing the enclosed cabin area of the optionally manned variant in order to create additional load and modular system capacity whilst reducing the...


The ease with which a product can be maintained in order to; correct defects or their cause, repair or replace faulty or worn-out components without having to replace still working parts, prevent unexpected working condition, maximize a product’s useful life, […]


The ease with which a vehicle is able to move and change direction, in this case over difficult terrain.

Obstacle Crossing

The ability to overcome natural, man-made and concealed obstacles to movement.


The ability to carry front or rear mountable implements capable of interacting with the surface of the ground for agricultural or snow clearance purposes.

Precision Control

The ability to make precise control movements that result in vehicle movement that precisely reflect the operators intention.

Proteus Amphibian

In anticipation of forthcoming Ukrainian ‘Mud Season’ and winter we are offering a number of enhancements to the existing Proteus 8×8 range to improve performance on mud, marshland, snow and ice, along with significantly...

Proteus with QuickBlock structure kit and 3 Point HItch with Backhoe fitted

QuickBlock and Backhoe

A wet few days in Ardnamurchan carrying out some ‘mutually supporting experimentation’ with QuickBlock. They needed a hole in the middle of nowhere to test some embankment and protection techniques and we needed to...

Range and Endurance

The ability to operate over extended ranges and conditions whilst resisting environmental effects during sustained operation.


Designed at the outset for rapid change in structure, hardware and software components, in order to quickly adjust capability and function within a fleet in response to sudden environmental changes or varying demands.

Remote Control

Remote teleoperation without the need for on-board human presence.

Slope Climbing

The ability to ascend or descend steep slopes safely, without losing traction, retaining the ability to manoeuvre to avoid obstacles or changing ground conditions, including the ability to back off safely and under control if necessary.

Slope Traversal

The ability to move across a slop safely without slipping or overturning, whilst retaining the ability to manoeuvre and deal with or avoid obstacles or changing ground conditions.

Soft Ground Transit

The ability to manoeuvre over soft terrain under load without excessive damage to the surface and without losing tractive effect.


The ability to move quickly over terrain.


In the context of an extreme terrain vehicle, having a low and central Centre of Gravity in a wide footprint so as to resist tipping on ground and to remain stable when afloat.

Step Climbing

The ability to overcome rapid changes in gradient or ground level without losing traction, bottoming out, fouling extremes of the vehicle or turning over.


The capability of a whole-system design to support operational use and readiness needs throughout the life-cycle at an affordable cost.


The ability to couple with standard towable loads and provide tractive effort to move them safely and securely over distance and terrain.

Understanding the Information Domain

Our next generation of autonomous functionality will exploit leading edge technologies and techniques to offer accessible and open solutions to many complex environments. Our focus is shifting from sword to ploughshare, drawing upon the...


Usability is the ease of use and learnability of a human-made object.
