The ARTEMIS program builds on capabilities delivered under Tomahawk Robotics’ existing Radio Agile Integrated Device (RAID) contract with MCWL.

With the ARTEMIS contract, Tomahawk Robotics will integrate six additional unmanned systems and several ground radios used by the US Marine Corps into the Kinesis Ecosystem.  These unmanned systems include both ground and airborne platforms in use by US Marine Corps Infantry Units.    

The $6.5 million award spans activities and deliveries scheduled from 2022 through 2024.

“This is another major step forward in our work to deliver AI-enabled universal robotic command and control for our men and women in uniform. Through this program, we will deliver products providing for the safe, efficient, and intuitive control of robotic systems by the US Marine Corps,” Brad Truesdell, Tomahawk Robotics’ CEO said.

The ARTEMIS program aims to provide a fully integrated common control and communications solution for both air and ground unmanned systems. It will enable universal robotic control of legacy Program of Record (PoR) systems as well as next-generation unmanned systems, sensors, and payloads for dismounted US Marine Corps units.
