From 19 to 22 October 2021, the Milipol Paris trade show dedicated to safety and internal security is held in Villepinte (Seine-Saint-Denis, France). On this occasion, Nexter is presenting a model of the TITUS vehicle (photo) in its law enforcement version (MO), its robots adapted to security missions, and also the nuclear, radiological, biological, chemical and explosive (NRBCe) protection systems of its subsidiary NBC-Sys.
The TITUS MO is currently used by the RAID unit. Thanks to its great modularity, the TITUS can be fitted with various mission kits such as a clearing blade, additional lightings or an external step to ensure the vehicle’s self-protection. The entire vehicle - including the openings - is protected against all types of projectiles used in the riots. It also has excellent mobility, thanks to its six-wheel drive and front/rear steering. In addition, this vehicle can accommodate drones and robots produced by Nexter.
In addition, Nexter’s robotics entity is presenting its NERVA range of ground robots. Already sold and delivered in 29 countries, this range is characterized by the versatility and modularity of its platforms.
For example, the NERVA XX, mounted on tracks, integrates both a manipulator arm for mine clearance operations and modular payloads (visual and thermal observation, mapping, CBRN detection and IED destruction, etc.). Moreover, for observation, Nexter offers a particularly discreet and compact means with the NERVA S. Designed to operate in all types of terrain, these robots are characterized by their robustness and ease of use. These qualities make them valuable tools for the many armed and security forces that already operate these systems.
NBC-Sys, a Nexter subsidiary specialized in CBRN detection and protection, is presenting a scenario for the use of its equipment, together with other specialist manufacturers. In this context, NBC-Sys equips a tent with a NBC filter system for the protection of people in a contaminated environment. Finally, NBC-Sys unveils a new concept of individual mask with lateral cartridge made from an ARFA mask, a model that is in use in the French army.
