Science Applications International Corp., ST Kinetics and Armatec Survivability Corp. recently finished a two-week demonstration of an amphibious vehicle U.S. Marine Corps' that is designed to work during land, littoral and water operations.
The team tested the wheeled Terrex 8×8 for human factors and stowage capability during the evaluation at Camp Pendleton, Calif., SAIC said Thursday.
Tom Watson, SAIC vice president for the Navy and Marine Corps group, said the vehicle fulfilled surf transit requirements and ocean swim tests.
Tests on the amphibious vehicle occurred under the Marine Corps' Marine Personnel Carrier Continued Systems Demonstration and Studies contract.
ST Kinetics designed and built Terrex to complement the USMC assault amphibious vehicle and future combat vehicles.
Terrex exhibited load capabilities for gear and supplies, interior for a specific number of marine forces and hatch for quick departure, SAIC said.
