Nexter announced on 24 May that its subsidiary Nexter Robotics has been selected by the Canadian Army to supply a total of 88 multi-purpose robots.
In collaboration with ECA Robotics for the robots and Ontario-based Deltic Group to provide in-service support, the Nexter-led team will supply 79 NERVA-LG and nine NERVA-XX robots, the company stated. The contract – which covers the Army’s High Research Secured-Remotely Operated Vehicle Systems (HRS-ROV) requirement – has a value of C$6 million (€4 million).
The NERVA range represents the best technology has to offer in multi-mission robotic systems. Over an above high performance, the robust, waterproof nature of the NERVA-LG allows it to be thrown on any terrain. It can easily be controlled from any standard PC, tablet or smartphone, and offers semi-autonomous capabilities to reduce operator workload. These characteristics, when coupled with the system’s wide range of potential payloads, make Nexter Robotic’s solution an efficient tool for all manner of situations. This multi-purpose medium-size robot is intended primarily for reconnaissance and operational support.
