OTO PRAETOR is a remotely controlled four-wheel drive vehicle designed for providing high performances both on road and in off-road.
OTO PRAETOR has been designed and developed following an Open Architecture and Modular System concept: the vehicle can be integrated and can operate in coordination with Manned and Unmanned platforms in a flexible way in order to accomplish to different operational needs.
OTO PRAETOR is able to operate as a node within a Sensors, Systems and Platforms network. OTO-PRAETOR can be remotely controlled through T-UAV platforms to which it transmits the information acquired.
OTO PRAETOR System is characterized by a modular architecture for integrating several payload suites.
The System has been developed in seven versions:
- RISTA (Reconnaissance, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Target Acquisition)
- Anti Improvised Explosive Devices (Anti-IED)
- Electronic Warfare
- DOG & FLEA mode
OTO PRAETOR integrates and carries an Oto TRP3 unmanned vehicle on a custom interface structure which can be actuated through remote control for rapid deployment of the smaller UGV. While operating as a mother vehicle, OTO PRAETOR is able to recollect the functions of control and monitoring a swarm of different-sized UGVs.
OTO PRAETOR can be fitted with a tailored take-off and landing platform in order to transport and operate UAV helicopters such as the OTO E-TRP5 IBIS. The tailored platform is equipped with an interface to the UAV system capable of recharging the helicopter batteries.
