Roshel showcases Senator vehicle with a “boomerang drone”

Canadian-based Roshel Inc. has unveiled its Senator in Mine-Resistant, Ambush-Protected (MRAP) configuration features with Easy Aerial autonomous drone-in-a-box solution at the 2023 AUSA Annual Meeting.

The Senator MRAP is designed to withstand calibers up to 7.62×39mm API BZ at 30 meters with 695 m/s as well as 6 kg (explosive mass) blast AT Mine activated under any wheel and under center. With its innovative V-shaped hull, the Senator MRAP maximizes crew survivability by deflecting blasts away from the cabin and dissipating explosive energy.

As noted by the company, the vehicle’s customizable layout and advanced engineering provide an ergonomic and adaptable workspace, ensuring optimal performance and operational efficiency.


The vehicle was integrated with a tactical Easy Guard Vehicle (EGV) battle-tested unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) ground station tailored to meet various operational requirements.

The drone will be able to return like a boomerang after accomplishing its task and the crew of the war machine will be safe all this time.

The EGV was specifically designed to be installed on mobile platforms. Thanks to its small size and low weight, its UAVs can rapidly mobilize, deploy and land from any vehicle type traveling up to 25 miles per hour, on or off-road.

The new drone solutions bring awesome situational awareness fro armored vehicle crew. EGV could provide reconnaissance, real-time situational awareness for increased force protection, and communication relays for tactical maneuvering forces, special operations, and dismounted warfighters on the battlefield.
