Contemporary battlefield is more and more demanding environment after all for soldiers but also for their equipment and machines that assist them. Looking at the last Lessons Learned experience we can conclude that the most dangerous threats met during last asymmetric warfare were Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Therefore, the main focus is being done to equip UGVs with efficient engineering equipment that allows operating very quickly in very dangerous environment being exposed to health

The concept of such an engineering robot design is described in this paper. The EOD/IED mission support engineer robot, the attachments of the EOD/IED mission support engineer robot, removal of car bombs by means of the robot's attachments, the EOD/IED mission support engineer robot's ability to overcome terrain obstacles, the mission support engineer robot's remote control panel are presented in the paper. Technological and Operational Problems Connected with UGV Application for Future Military Operations was held in Rzeszow, Poland on 20-22 nd April 2015.
