The AMVXP sets a new standard for the future and most modern 8x8 armoured wheeled vehicles. Highest level of survivability is reached by modern protection solutions which due to vehicles high payload carrying capability can be scaled according to most demanding customer requirements. AMVXP’s unrivalled all-terrain mobility is based on the agile, adaptable and robust vehicle together with a strong powerline. Multiple weapon systems are available while the battlefield effectiveness is enhanced due to digitalization.

The Patria 6x6 is built on the success of Patria XA 6x6 and AMV 8x8 that have become an iconic part of the peacekeeping and crises management missions and transporting soldiers on the battlefield. Patria 6x6 is a simple & robust vehicle providing modern protection & extreme mobility. The vehicle is cost efficient added with low through-life costs, this together with truck-like user interface makes vehicle simply to operate, maintain and repair. Patria 6x6 is perfect for any combat support role Logistical commonality between Patria 6x6 and Patria AMVXP provides additional benefits.

Patria Nemo is a turreted, remote-controlled 120 mm mortar system. It is an indirect fire support system, but due to its direct fire capability, it can also be used for self-defence. It can also fire Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) fire missions where up to 5 grenades hit the target simultaneously. The light and compact turret is easily installable on light, tracked chassis or wheeled armoured vehicles in the 6x6/8x8 class or Navy vessels.

CANDL – Compact Airborne Networking Data Link

CANDL is a data link system for networking applications such as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUMT), Intra-Flight Data Link (IFDL) and Live Virtual Constructive training (LVC). It provides reliable long-range communication between up to 24 members in the same network. Network configuration is automatic allowing dynamic joining/leaving of new members in the network as well as extending range to beyond line of sight by relaying data. Data communication is encrypted, and it is possible to use an optional internal COMSEC module as well. CANDL has full Internet Protocol compatibility, therefore integration with any modern platforms is easy and there are no limitations for transmitted date types (e.g.; C2, voice, HD video and DIS/HLA are supported).

ARIS - Advanced Real-time Intelligence System

ARIS is an Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) system used to intercept, record and analyze radar signals. ARIS operator analyses signal parameters and based on that determines characteristics of unknown radars. ARIS is remote operable, which means that operators can use several deployed ARIS systems from a centralized operator center through network connection. ARIS has superb measurement accuracy and its user interface and tools are very intuitive and easy to use which makes operators very productive. Results of the analysis are exported to emitter database for later identification. ARIS can be delivered in four different levels of system integration ranging from ELINT analysis application for analysing recorded signals to fully integrated self-contained ELINT capability.


ARIS-E is a new Electronic Support Measures (ESM) product building on ARIS. ARIS-E system provides automatic identification, real-time geolocation and tracking of radars on the battlefield (i.e. forms tactical electronic situational awareness). ARIS-E is based on a modular architecture and compact size enabling configurations for naval and land based operations. ARIS and ARIS-E together deliver comprehensive tools for strategic and tactical radar ELINT/ESM for various needs.

MUSCL - Multistatic Coherent Location (passive radar)

MUSCL is a passive radar system. The system uses signals from existing radio and TV broadcast networks for target detection and tracking. Therefore, MUSCL does not need to produce own radar signals, which makes it practically invisible for adversaries as well as enabling safe deployments and use in urban areas. Due to physical characteristics of radio/TV signals and multistatic operation (i.e. transmitter and receiver at different locations), the system has capabilities to detect stealth and low flying targets. MUSCL has various applications such as military air surveillance, border control, critical infrastructure protection and drone detection.
