The Singapore Airshow Exhibition reveals just how close ground robots are to the battlefield. The Jaeger 6 is the latest development of ST Kinetics in the field of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). Based on a proven commercial skid-steer chassis, the Jaeger 6 can be outfitted with a wide range of payloads to address specific mission requirements.

The vehicle is also equipped with proprietary control algorithms that enable it to operate semi-autonomously with a high degree of safety, making it a suitable alternative for labor-intensive missions such as perimeter security and logistics support.

The Jaeger 6 can be operated by a single person through a control unit connected via a Wi-Fi connection, but the system can also be connected through to an encrypted 4G mobile network. The vehicle is also available in an 8×8 configuration, but only the 6x6 version is ready for production.

The Jaeger 6 can be fitted with weapons, robotic, or sensor systems. The gross weight of the standard 6×6 configuration is approximately 750 kg with a maximum payload of 250 kg. It has a length of 2.5 m, a width of 1.5 m and a height of 0.85 m.

The UGV, capable of reaching a maximum speed of 16 km/h, can be operated in standard use during 24 hours and 4 hours in silent mode. The Jaeger 6 is electrically powered with an onboard diesel generator and charge alternator to recharge the batteries that offer extending endurance up to 48 hours.
