ARX Landysteme demonstrates Gereon RCS in Estonia

By Defence Industry Europe

In the last days of June, a new unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), the Gereon Robotic Carrier System (Gereon RCS), was presented for the first time in Estonia. The public unveiling of the vehicle also became an opportunity to demonstrate its potential and capabilities during the tests of autonomous ground systems, in which 10 other UGVs took part.

Gereon RCS was developed by the German company ARX Landsysteme, formally established in March 2023. According to Stefan Roebel, COO and co-founder of the company, the prototype, weighing 450 kg, was designed as a small, modular, multi-functional UGV operating on the principle of plug and play.

Due to its size (141.5 cm × 131 cm × 73 cm), Gereon RCS is designed to fit in most vehicles used by the armed forces of many countries and is adapted to cooperate with unmanned vehicles. It is also expected to be cheaper compared to other products in its class, potentially making it more accessible, even to less affluent users.

 

 

The maximum payload of the UAV is 600 kg, with a range of 40 km and a speed of 20 km/h. It is equipped with two GPS receivers and a set of LIDAR sensors. Thanks to LIDAR, Gereon RCS will be able to map the area. Built-in modules provide intelligent functions that support moving along a previously planned route or in follow-on mode (behind a specific object, for example, a soldier carrying a wireless controller or another vehicle). The vehicle in autonomous mode is also capable of avoiding terrain obstacles.

Other versions of this vehicle were also created: Gereon 2 and Gereon 3. They weigh 65 kg and 180 kg, respectively.
