The Survivable Combat Tactical Vehicle Capsule is the protective capsule that replaces the current HMMWV crew compartment in a one-for-one exchange and is an integral component of the Textron/Granite total system integration.

The SCTV™ is a lightweight, highly protected system that is low in maintenance, rotary wing transportable, and compatible with all versions of HMMVWs currently in service. The solution capitalizes on previous training and maintains the characteristics of the original HMMWV cab by utilizing most of the existing controls, linkages and drive systems - the familiar and proven characteristics that make the HMMWV the vehicle of choice.

The SCTV™ HMMVW integrated vehicle system protects in-theater troops against blast and IED threats during combat operations on the asymmetric battlefield. The continuing need for substantial and sustained deployments across the full spectrum of operations requires innovative solutions to protect troops. Crew survivability has become a key performance parameter for all vehicle platforms. The SCTV™ has a lower center of gravity than an up-armored HMMVW and is resistant to small arms fire, blasts and the secondary effects of blasts such as fire, crushing, rollover and collision.

Pre-assembled SCTV™ components are easily transported by road, sea or air. The retrofit can be accomplished in fewer man-hours than the current armor and frag kits. The SCTV™ is low maintenance and supported by the military's existing parts inventory.
