General information
The Office of Naval Research has selected General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), to perform a “Best Technical Approach” trade study and to build a mock-up for use in defining a common set of requirements for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) Program. JLTV is expected to provide the U.S. Army and Marine Corps with a family of more survivable vehicles and greater payload than the HMWWV.
General Tactical Vehicles, the joint venture company, will design, develop and produce a highly mobile, highly survivable and innovative wheeled utility vehicle for the armed services to meet all the requirements of the JLTV program. The joint venture is the first-ever collaborative project for the two American defense companies, both of whom were awarded JLTV “Best Technical Approach” trade studies by the Office of Naval Research in 2006.
General Tactical Vehicles is a joint venture between AM General and General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), formed to provide the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps a low-risk, affordable, technically advanced and economically sustainable solution to their Joint Light Tactical Vehicle requirements. In 2006, both AM General and General Dynamics were awarded JLTV “Best Technical Approach” trade studies by the Office of Naval Research.
General Tactical Vehicles (GTV), a joint venture between General Dynamics Land Systems and AM General, has been awarded a $45 million Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) 27-month Technology Demonstration (TD) contract from the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command. GTV is one of three awardees to receive TD contracts under this program.

Propulsion
GTV’s offer for the JLTV maximizes survivability and optimizes power and payload. The approach focuses on commonality of systems and components along with modular armor, resulting in an innovative and agile vehicle system that will provide enhanced crew protection, increased cargo capacity and transportability.
