Launched by UAE-based NIMR Automotive, a subsidiary of Emirates Defense Industries Company (EDIC), MIRA’s engineers developed RIV as an ultra high-mobility, lightweight and rapidly deployable platform that complies with international military standards.

NIMR RIV was produced in response to evolving industry trends and an increase in demand for specialised vehicles with greater crossover of mission requirements and capabilities. 

Created to fit a bespoke set of operational requirements, NIMR RIV is designed to carry four crew plus their equipment, and is specified for high-speed response to tactical situations in remote sites, either by fast-ground transit or helicopter insertion. Capable of operating at extended ranges in harsh desert environments, NIMR RIV also features under-body blast protection as well as modular applique armour packs for ballistic protection.

HORIBA MIRA’s work in the defence sector spans across engineering consultancy, testing, product design and prototype build. With its combination of highly qualified and experienced staff and a unique collection of test and validation facilities, MIRA is uniquely placed to provide comprehensive defence vehicle engineering solutions.
