The Rheinmetall Mission Master family

A pioneering line of autonomous unmanned ground vehicles

The Rheinmetall Mission Master is a unique family of Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicles (A-UGVs) designed to support military troops in dangerous missions, difficult terrain, and hostile weather conditions. On top of being valuable for reconnaissance and surveillance operations, the Mission Master platforms can be fitted for tactical overwatch, fire support, medical evacuation, CBRN detection, communication relay, and any other type of missions that may require the support of an A-UGV.

Each Mission Master vehicle is already networked with both Rheinmetall’s soldier system and the Rheinmetall Command and Control Software, which are compatible in any user’s battle management system.

Rheinmetall Mission Master A-UGVs: a unique family of dependable allies for soldiers

Rheinmetall Mission Master SP: Compact and stealthy

The Mission Master SP is a low-profile A-UGV engineered to provide assistance and reduce danger to dismounted soldiers in a wide range of missions, including high-risk situations. With its low-signature electric motor, the Mission Master SP excels in any scenario requiring stealth and agility.

This A-UGV is built for forward and last-mile resupply missions, silent watch operations, and carriage of light payloads, such as section sensors and weapon systems. Compact and highly mobile, the Mission Master SP can follow troops as a buddy, letting soldiers get closer to the enemy without being seen or heard.

Rheinmetall Mission Master XT: Highly mobile and powerful

The Mission Master XT is a rugged A-UGV designed to accompany troops in all kinds of missions, especially in challenging environments. With its total mobility in extreme terrain and advanced amphibious capabilities, the Mission Master XT reliably transports payloads of up to 1000 kg in even the most unforgiving conditions.

A reliable ally in the field, the Mission Master XT can travel 750 km without refuelling. In addition, an integrated battery facilitates silent watch operations for several hours at a time, extending this A-UGV’s capabilities even further. Robust enough to handle platoon or company sensors and weapon systems, the Mission Master XT lets units increase their range and firepower with heavier-calibre weapons and larger optics than they would otherwise be able to carry.

A modular design for all platforms

Extremely versatile, Mission Master A-UGVs can perform any mission profiles using a wide variety of modular payloads. Each module comes on a sturdy plate, preconfigured and ready to be bolted and plugged into the base platform within minutes.

Any specific requirements can be fulfilled with Rheinmetall’s made-to-order A-UGV solution. By working closely with each customer, Rheinmetall guarantees the right solution for every need.

Driven by Rheinmetall PATH

The Mission Master family owes its autonomous navigation and driving functions to the Rheinmetall PATH autonomy kit (A-kit). Proven, agnostic, trusted, and highly autonomous, PATH enables military vehicles to operate in unmanned mode, freeing up soldiers for other duties and keeping them out of danger. This A-kit provides a wide range of teleoperation options for Mission Master A-UGVs, including a tablet, smartwatch, soldier system, and single-hand controller.

These devices enable full access to advanced PATH features, such as follow-me, convoy, and autonomous navigation modes. Each control mode incorporates multiple layers of protection to ensure that the vehicle always operates safely. Moreover, Rheinmetall is committed to keeping a human in the loop in all kinetic operations, assuring that it is never a machine that decides when to open fire. PATH has an open, flexible architecture, meaning it will rapidly integrate first-hand innovations as artificial intelligence technologies evolve.
