Representatives from MCWL, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Department of Transportation, the Robotic Systems Joint Project Office and other agencies were also in attendance.
Oshkosh will be demonstrating the TerraMax UGV technology at AUSA 2012 at booth #1713.
TerraMax™ unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) technology is mounted on Oshkosh Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacements (MTVR).
Equipped on two Oshkosh Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacements (MTVR), the TerraMax UGVs conducted representative convoy operations, demonstrating obstacle avoidance and attaining speeds of 35 miles per hour. The event followed MCWL’s successful Enhanced MAGTF Operations (EMO) Limited Objective Experiment (LOE) 2.2, in which the TerraMax system and other technologies under development for future missions were evaluated with a focus on defining tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) to successfully employ unmanned ground systems and logistic demand reduction technologies.
