A Lockheed Martin-led team has submitted a new proposal for a joint light tactical vehicle to the Army and Marine Corps.
The Bethesda, Md.-based contractor said the mine-resistant vehicle is a few hundred pounds less than previous models by omitting the use of exotic metals like titanium.
Scott Greene, vice president of ground vehicles, said the vehicle has logged more than 160,000 miles in testing.
The team developed a new design for the vehicle through digital engineering analysis, virtual design builds, component tests and physical stress testing.
Team member BAE Systems also helped develop the assembly process.
L-3 Communications’ combat propulsion systems business unit provided automotive supplies.
In October, Lockheed won a lead spot on a $1 billion contract to upgrade vehicles for the British army.
