An Oshkosh Corp. business unit will demonstrate its unmanned ground vehicle technology at the annual Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International XPONENTIAL conference Monday through Thursday in New Orleans.
Oshkosh Defense will exhibit an MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle equipped with a TerraMax UGV that works to facilitate force protection and force multiplier features in the battlefields, the company said Monday.
John Beck, Oshkosh chief unmanned systems engineer, said the product serves to outfit traditional tactical vehicles to help limit troop exposure to threats and manpower requirements for logistics operations.
The TerraMax system also works to provide a standoff distance from improvised explosive devices and other threats by eliminating the need for vehicle operators, Oshkosh added.
Beck will present TerraMax UGV specifications and its applications at the XPONENTIAL conference, the company said.
Oshkosh previously landed a $6.7 billion contract from the U.S. Army to build armored vehicles to replace the Humvee as part of the military branch’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program.
