Our Vision

At Praesdium Global we are striving to become an international leader in military Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs). Our designs are the result of collaboration between combat veterans and gifted technicians. Our systems are built by a team focused on one thing; providing our customers with an unfair advantage on the battlefield.

 

Our Design Principles

Praesidum Global is a technology company specialising in the design and manufacture of military UGVs. Praesidium Global’s range of modular UGVs are designed to be adaptable to support military missions including surveillance and reconnaissance, direct fire support, casualty evacuation and battlefield logistics.

At Praesidium Global we understand the realities of combat operations. We strive to make our systems simple to operate and reliable by design. We build redundancy into everything, from communications links, to navigation, and our mechanical systems. Even though our products are unmanned, we put the human at the centre of all of our designs and think about operator training from the outset. We design and build our systems to be operated by fatigued soldiers, on the last week of their tour, in dirty and dusty environments, at the end of the supply chain. We use advanced technology, selective automation and intuitive interfaces to put highly capable systems at the fingertips of soldiers.
