Familiar, Proven Mobility of the MRZR Team Polaris submitting MRZR® X for SMET Program
The MRZR is a prolific and preferred platform among light forces in the U.S. and more than 25 allied countries, which helps make its integration and the transition from manned to unmanned vehicles that much easier for the Army and the soldier. The MRZR X maintains the same mission profile the Army is accustomed to, with additional capabilities for the soldiers that exceed SMET base requirements.
