Lockheed Martin has delivered proposal for Joint Light Tactical Vehicle JLTV for U.S. armed forces.
The Lockheed Martin Team believes its proposal delivers the best performing, best value option for the JLTV program. By balancing the “iron triangle” of protection, performance and payload, the Team has created a vehicle that delivers greater reliability, outstanding fuel efficiency, unmatched power generation capability, and lower overall operations and sustainment costs.

It offers MRAP-levels of crew protection and restores cross-country maneuverability to keep Soldiers and Marines safe from the asymmetric threats they face while carrying out their missions.

We believe our proposal proves that we will deliver an exceptional vehicle to the U.S. Government at the right price,” said Scott Greene, vice president – Ground Vehicles at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “Our JLTVs have almost half-a-million combined testing miles to date, excluding trailer miles, and our performance in the testing phases of the program has been outstanding. We are eager to provide our Soldiers and Marines with the best possible vehicle.

The Lockheed Martin Team’s JLTV is far more than just a truck. It is a fully integrated combat tactical system that meets today’s requirements and was designed with the future in mind. It offers MRAP levels of crew protection, substantial increase in performance and payload, as well as greater reliability, outstanding fuel efficiency, and lower operations and sustainment costs.
     
     
The Lockheed Martin JLTV Team consists of a number of highly respected companies with decades of military vehicle production experience. Partner BAE Systems has produced over 100,000 tactical combat tracked and wheeled vehicles, and provides the JLTV’s occupant-centric protection system. A robust Cummins 4.5-litre, 4-cylinder engine provides greater displacement than many V6 engines, yet returns superior fuel efficiency. A highly reliable Allison 6-speed transmission completes the drive train. And a rugged independent air bag suspension system, provided by Meritor, delivers superior ride quality while maximizing ground clearance with an innovative “adjustable ride height” feature.

“Government testing proved our JLTV meets protection standards for IED-protected vehicles with margin,” said Scott Greene, vice president of Ground Vehicles at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “We started this program from a blank sheet of paper and purposefully designed a vehicle to meet or exceed the specific JLTV program requirements, rather than taking an existing vehicle and trying to force-fit it into the requirements. The result is a vehicle that precisely aligns to the customers’ stated protection and mobility needs.”

The Lockheed Martin Team’s JLTV also features an innovative Power Generation Exportable Power solution instead of an alternator, providing vehicle power of up to 15kW today, and expandable to as much as 75kW in the future. That power generation capability is crucial as the need for on-board power continues to rise for the warfighter. Additionally, the team’s JLTV is designed to be easily expandable and reconfigurable, anticipating that future needs of the users will continue to evolve.

As the only contractor in the JLTV competition to have won a Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for Manufacturing Excellence, Lockheed Martin will perform final assembly of JLTV at its award-winning production facility in Camden, Ark. Lockheed Martin successfully completed the Government’s Manufacturing Readiness Assessment and Production Readiness Review (PRR) at its Camden Operations.
