Description

BAE Systems and Navistar Defense LLC offer the Valanx™, a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle Family of Vehicles (JLTV FoV) that fills the gap between HMMWVs and combat vehicles. The U.S. Joint Services have a requirement for a new Joint Light Tactical Wheeled Vehicle platform that provides better protection, survivability and capabilities than today’s fleet.
BAE Systems, Navistar Defense and Arvin Meritor have teamed to compete for the JLTV program. The team is unmatched from concept to combat. It combines BAE Systems’ proven combat system design excellence, Navistar’s world-class supply chain, best-of-breed commercial production, and worldwide logistics and Arvin Meritor’s advanced mobility systems. Built to meet the Warfighters’ requirements, our user-centric and systems-engineered JLTV balances Payload, Performance and Protection: the “Iron Triangle.” The system provides exceptional “fightability” with maximum volume under armor at desired transport weight.
The team is offering a purpose-built, Warfighter-centric JLTV design that provides unmatched strength, protection and support for the Warfighter. The Warfighter-centric design incorporates lessons learned from BAE Systems’ successful history of combat vehicle production and optimizes payload, protection and performance to meet all JLTV requirements. The team is testing prototypes and competing to win a 27-month Technology Demonstration contract.

 
Variants
During the demonstration phase, the BAE Systems-Navistar team will submit seven prototype vehicles and four trailers for evaluation and testing by the Army.

Armament
At this time, there is not specific armament mounted to the vehicle, but in the future the vehicle can be fitted with a 12,7 mm or 7,62 mm machine gun for his self-protection.
Protection
The BAE Systems-Navistar JLTV proposal is named the Valanx. Valanx is a family of v-hulled, blast-resistant vehicles that optimize what's referred to as the "iron triangle" – payload, protection and performance – to meet all requirements of the JLTV program. The Valanx design incorporates lessons learned from the U.S. Department of Defense's Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle program and features the latest in lightweight, advanced armor and a v-shaped hull design to provide unmatched crew protection. The V-shaped aluminum/ titanium hull structure provides superior integral vehicle protection as proven on our MRAP line of vehicles.The vehicles should be armoured, have network connectivity, be light enough to be transported by a range of aircraft and feature common parts, systems, tools, training and maintenance procedures.
Mobility
The vehicle will out-perform existing tactical systems by providing exportable power that exceeds JLTV requirements and existing MRAP capabilities. Its modular design maximizes commonality across JLTV variants and enables the seamless integration of future technologies. The team also includes Arvin Meritor to manufacture the lightweight independent suspension and drivetrain solutions for the Valanx. The company is a leading designer and manufacturer of automotive advanced mobility systems and is the largest axle supplier to the U.S. military.
Accessories
There are several variations of the Valanx designed to meet scouting, general mobility, infantry carrying, ambulatory and other needs for combat troops
The Valanx™ is based on a fully integrated, low risk foundation that represents current and immediate capability with ample margin for growth. The system architecture accommodates future enhancements and transition to hybrid/ electric drive for greater fuel efficiency. Built-in modular, open architecture allows for advances in vetronics, protection, and hybrid drive. Design modularity means upgrades can be “swapped-in” and enhancements are “plug-and-play.” And the entire range of sub-configurations in the BAE Systems JLTV FoV is designed for commonality, including companion trailers.
