The Emirati-based ADASI company, specialising in autonomous defence systems, presented its new products including the AJBAN armed robotic vehicle (ARV), SCORPIO-S and -M Unmanned Ground Vehicle as well as a family of Smart Loitering Munitions at the IDEX 2021 arms exposition in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

In cooperation with NIMR, its sister company within the EDGE Group, ADASI converted the AJBAN 440A armoured four-door vehicle into an unmanned system called the AJBAN armed robotic vehicle (ARV). In case of a situation which poses a threat to the lives of the crew, the vehicle can be operated remotely via a ground control station (GCS) with a communication range of 12 kilometres (7.4 miles) and endurance of up to eight hours.

According to the developers, it can withstand small arms fire, artillery shell splinters and survive mine and improvised explosive devices (IED) blasts. The new AJBAN ARV was created for battlefield engagement, counterterrorism, surveillance and reconnaissance, and border control purposes.

ADASI also presented two brand new SCORPIO-M Mini and SCORPIO-S Small unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). SCORPIO-M is lightweight and portable, with the capacity to carry a payload of up to 10 kilograms with endurance of up to two hours, while SCORPIO-S can carry a payload of up to 100 kilograms, with endurance of up to six hours – additionally supporting a robotic arm extendable to one metre (3.2 feet) and equipped with a lightweight and innovative Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS).

As for the drones, ADASI and EDGE showcased their first UAE-made QX family of smart multirotor loitering munitions. QX3 electric unmanned aerial vehicle is a multirotor with a six kilogram payload, onboard video surveillance. It is transportable via light vehicle and boasts a payload of up to four precision guided bombs with a range of 40 kilometres. The QX4 has vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) fixed wing with 2.5 or five kilogram payload with a range of 40 km (25 miles).

The EDGE subsidiary used artificial intelligence software for processes involved in targeting and strike missions, according to a news release. The drones are not intended for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, but instead to destroy targets.
