Hanwha consortium pitches VenomX autonomy to the army


Korean defence manufacturer Hanwha Defense Australia (HDA) has brought together Australian and South Korean industry to pitch its autonomous VenomX logistics concept.

The company is pitching the AI powered ‘Automated Protected Logistics to the Edge’ system to the Australian Army via the Robotic and Autonomous Systems Implementation and Coordination Office (RICO).

Hanwha is building self-propelled howitzers for the Army in Geelong, and recently won the competition to provide its Redback Infantry Fighting Vehicle to the Australian Defence Force.

Hanwha said: “The ‘VenomX’ concept provides a platform for many of Australia’s best and brightest in Defence industry to showcase their disruptive technologies.”

VenomX Australian partners are 4Zero Technologies, Eclips Logistics, Deakin University and Visionary Machines.

The company said its solution sought to support various elements of Army’s Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Strategy such as:

  • Generating mss and scalable effects; through teaming, swarming technologies and
    optionally crewed platforms
  • Efficiency; through improving logistics, maintenance, and medical effects utilising Artificial
    Intelligence (AI), data analytics, autonomy and leader-follower technologies.

“Army’s RAS Strategy V2.0 articulates how Army aspires to leverage emerging technology such as AI,
autonomy, and robotics to gain operational advantage.

“As one of Chief of Army’s Priorities, all of us at VenomX are excited about the prospect of potential
future collaboration with the Army.”
