How uncrewed systems and modular vehicle kits are defining the future of combat engineering and support

Share to:


In this latest Shephard Technology Report, Gerrard Cowan details how the latest technologies are being applied to the oft-neglected but vital area of battlefield engineering, medevac and other non-combat roles in the land domain.

Part 1 surveys leading-edge thinking on using robotic and autonomous platforms for support missions, assessing how close the state of the art is to achieving the goal of equipping frontline units with an uncrewed or optionally crewed vehicle capable of being re-roled to keep soldiers out of harm’s way for all hazardous non-combat tasks. 

In Part 2, Gerrard looks to the future of the traditional armoured engineering vehicle, examining how they can become more versatile and make the best use of developmental technologies, as well as innovative ways of making this specialist capability more widely available across the whole of an army.

Uncrewed systems – tactical enablers 

View analysis

As UGVs increasingly gain traction across the world’s major armed forces, Shephard dives into how their high levels of manoeuvrability and flexibility, combined with advanced autonomy and AI, can be game-changing for vital logistics and engineering work in the heat of battle. 

Armoured engineering – sharing the load 

View news

Specialist combat engineering vehicles have traditionally been heavy, expensive and procured in relatively small numbers. Shephard looks at fresh approaches to growing this capability at a lower cost, including using smaller base platforms, and the development of rapid conversion kits to enable standard AFVs to carry out missions such as breaching or mine clearance.
