Israel developed highly maneuverable combat robot

Israel’s Ministry of Defense has announced that the Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure has completed the development stage of the Sahar system.

According to a statement, the new Sahar system is an autonomous robotic ground vehicle developed by IAI in a partnership with Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure.

The system was developed to carry out operational missions in various areas, with an emphasis on dealing with explosives, and is one component of the robotic front guard concept.


The system consists of three components. The first consists of a six-ton robot platform capable of maneuvering alongside an armored combat vehicle with or without an operator’s intervention.

The second component is technological, including the robotic kit, a system with a variety of means of sensing, smart cameras, a laser sensor, scanner, and radars. The system can map a known obstacle in advance and through pre-programmed logic, overcome it.

The third component of the robot developed by Israel Aerospace Industries is the task component: when the device identifies a danger, it transmits a warning report to the forces operating in the field about its exact placement.

The system is one of the most advanced in the area of ground robotics and indicates that the IDF is in a very advanced position in the field of UAVs by land, air, and sea.
