An Oshkosh Corp.Â business unit willÂ demonstrate itsÂ unmanned ground vehicle technology at the annual Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International XPONENTIAL conference Monday through Thursday in New Orleans.
Oshkosh DefenseÂ will exhibitÂ anÂ MRAP All-Terrain VehicleÂ equipped with a TerraMax UGV that works to facilitateÂ force protection and force multiplier features in theÂ battlefields, the company said Monday.
John Beck, Oshkosh chief unmanned systems engineer, said the product serves to outfit traditional tactical vehicles to help limitÂ troop exposure to threats and manpower requirements for logistics operations.
The TerraMax system also works toÂ provide a standoff distance from improvised explosive devices and other threats by eliminatingÂ the need for vehicleÂ operators,Â Oshkosh added.
Beck will present TerraMax UGV specificationsÂ and its applications at the XPONENTIALÂ conference, the companyÂ said.
Oshkosh previouslyÂ landed a $6.7 billion contractÂ from the U.S. Army to buildÂ armored vehicles to replace the HumveeÂ as part ofÂ the military branch’sÂ Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program.
