The robotic platform is distinguished by its modular design, which makes it possible to adapt it to various mission requirements. As weapons, for example, a machine gun with a caliber of up to 12.7 mm, or grenade launchers with a caliber of up to 40 mm can be installed.

At the Eurosatory 2024 defense exhibition, the research and production enterprise “Ukrainian Unmanned Technologies” (UBT) showed its latest achievements in the field of unmanned ground vehicles. It is about the universal mobile platform (UMP) “Ravlyk”, which is a modular solution for various military applications. This was reported by Army Recognition observers on June 20.

Development of the “Ravlyk” UMP began back in 2016, when a team of engineers and programmers of the UBT developed a remote-controlled combat module for a 12.7-mm anti-aircraft machine gun NSVT, specifically intended for operations in the ATO zone.

By 2019, the design was refined, and the new version of the mobile platform received improved drive systems and updated software, taking into account the feedback of the military.

Western observers noted that among the key innovations of the enterprise — the development of new shock modules for various types of weapons, including the Browning M2 machine gun and the MK 19 grenade launcher.

Advantages and capabilities of the Ravlyk UMP

The Ravlyk UMP is characterized by a modular design that gives it can be adapted to different mission requirements without the need to make structural changes.

This flexibility also extends to the installation of various weapons modules, ranging from machine guns with a caliber of up to 12.7 mm to grenade launchers with a caliber of up to 40 mm.

“Such adaptability provides the ability to quickly change the configuration of the platform in accordance with the changing needs of the battlefield,” — experts write.

The platform has a number of key advantages. First of all, the resistance of the system to radio-electronic warfare was noted, which ensures reliability in the conditions of a hostile environment. “Snail” — a digital control channel that enables safe and accurate remote control.

The system also has advanced surveillance capabilities that allow it to remain at observation points for up to 96 hours with minimal thermal visibility, reducing the risk of detection.

As for practical application, so far the 2023 “Snail” has passed testing and certification at the National Research Institute, confirming its characteristics and reliability.

“According to the results of the tests, exceptionally positive feedback was received, which emphasize the efficiency and operational reliability of the platform in real combat conditions”, — observers concluded.
