Unmanned Air, Ground, Surface and Underwater vehicles have transformed a defense’s force offensive and defensive capabilities, while also significantly improving the operational capability of many non-lethal applications. Unmanned Systems require zero failure and depend on rapid and precise manipulation of control surfaces as well as their sensor, tracking, weapon & payload systems. In addition, UGVs and UUVs require the same level of precision for traction control, propulsion, video systems, articulated manipulators and more.

Lightweight & Reliable Solutions

UAVs need to be small and lightweight to stay airborne for extended periods and to escape detection. UGVs and UUVs need the ability to perform complex motions in confined spaces and harsh environments. These requirements call for compact, light, energy-efficient componentry that can respond instantly and precisely under adverse conditions while simultaneously contributing to a platform’s size, weight & power coefficient. With unmanned missions increasing in scale and duration, the reliability of systems is critical. You can count on Kollmorgen’s broad range of motion solutions to deliver the performance you need every time you need it.
