The Next Generation of Survivability Vehicles
The limited military ground presence currently has allowed the US Army and US Marine Corps to give attention to a long withstanding issue: upgrading its light tactical vehicle fleet. Up until this point, much of what was done to the vehicle fleet during recent operations in Iraq and Afghanistan would be considered by most to be a temporary solution.
As a result, the JLTV program is now headed for production, the AMPV program has just been awarded, the ULCV program is in pre-solicitation, and the HMMWV modernization initiative is on the horizon. However, not without challenges….
- Identifying best value components is difficult to define
- Assessing the full spectrum of sub contractor capabilities is easier said than done
- and, speed to market is essential as conflicts abroad percolate
Can you help achieve these objectives? Whether an active military stakeholder, an OEM spearheading the design, or a supplier with cutting edge solutions, don’t miss this rare opportunity to address the needs of not only the current projects but those coming in the near future by joining us for the Lightweight Tactical Vehicles Summit 2015.
“With the recent vehicle programs and modernization initiatives in the military vehicle fleets, it is especially important for industry to get involved and present new and innovative ideas to the military. This conference is an example of an excellent opportunity to do just that.” --COL Robert "Rocky" Kmiecik
