Anduril Industries and Hanwha Defense USA Partner for U.S. Army Programme

Anduril Industries has formed a strategic partnership with Hanwha Defense USA to pursue the U.S. Army’s Small Multipurpose Equipment Transport (S-MET) Increment II programme.
 
Anduril will serve as the prime contractor to deliver a modified, autonomy-ready Uncrewed Ground Vehicle (UGV) based on Hanwha’s proven Arion-SMET platform, which has already demonstrated its performance in relevant and varied environments in the Indo-Pacific, including the latest Foreign Comparative Testing with the U.S. Army and Marine Corps in Hawaii. In addition to Anduril Industries and Hanwha Defense USA, Forterra (formerly RRAI) will bring its AutoDrive vehicle autonomy solution to enable complex on and off-road manoeuvres.
 
The partnership will deliver a differentiated UGV designed to bring capability far beyond equipment transport to a range of missions. Equipped with significant load-carrying and power generation capacity, as well as a modular architecture that ensures the vehicle can integrate and power a vast range of payloads, the new, upgraded vehicle brings both advanced capability and a reduced sustainment burden to dismounted infantry operations.
 
Anduril’s S-MET vehicle is designed with survivability in mind, meeting power and performance needs while maintaining a low acoustic signature, ensuring that it serves as an asset on the modern battlefield.
