Titan, being displayed at the Ground Vehicle Systems Engineering and Technology Symposium, has been selected by the U.S. Army's Squad Maneuver Equipment Transport program for testing.

Titan is a joint product with QinetiQ North America. It is comprised of a modular hybrid unmanned ground vehicle from Milrem and a tactical robot controller and applique kit from QNA. It acts as a support platform for dismounted troops, carrying soldier equipment.
The vehicle can also be used to carry remote weapon stations with small- and large-caliber weapons.
