TRX Breacher General Dynamics technology demonstrator of engineer tracked robotic platform at AUSA 2022

General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) has developed the TRX Breacher which was unveiled during the edition 2022 of the Association of United States Army defense exhibition. The TRX Breacher is a technology demonstrator designed to provide new engineer mission capabilities based on a tracked robotic platform.

Earlier this year the TRX was demonstrated to the U.S. Army as an autonomous resupply vehicle using standard military cargo containers, but at AUSA 2022, the TRX robot was fitted with engineer tools able to breach obstacles using a plow blade and clear mines with a manipulating arm. The front of the vehicle is also fitted with a dozer blade.

Citing information published by the "National Interest" website, GDLS (General Dynamics Land Systems) unveiled the TRX family of medium-class robots at the 2021 Association of the United States Army Annual Symposium. The tw0-ton tracked robotic TRX vehicle leverages capabilities and lessons learned from a GDLS program called Multi-Utility Tactical Transport (MUTT), a high-tech, innovative robotics program designed to push the envelope of autonomous operations and change or improve paradigms for manned-unmanned warfare.

The Tracked Robot 10-ton (TRX) technology demonstrator supports Army objectives for a Robotic Combat Vehicle, executing dull, dirty and dangerous missions so Soldiers don’t have to. TRX’s Breacher payload is designed to perform dangerous obstacle-reduction tasks and is the result of a partnership with Pearson Engineering.

TRX’s flatbed design integrates any payload with a class-leading payload-to-chassis ratio of 1:1. TRX is able to maneuver at speed with all formations and is transportable on CH-47 and C-130 aircraft. TRX also generates exportable power to support mission command operations and is hybrid-electric in support of the Army’s climate and electrification strategy.
