Local Motors partnered with Dassault Systèmes to deliver the first crowdsourced military vehicle, FLYPMode, which went from concept to prototype in less than six months.

Dassault Systèmes partnered with Local Motors to deliver the first co-created military vehicle. Local Motors’ community was asked to develop a vehicle body design that could support two types of missions—combat reconnaissance and combat delivery and evacuation. Dassault Systèmes’ Version 6 platform and Local Motors’ expertise in crowd-based design and manufacturing helped the winning vehicle go from concept to working prototype in less than six months. Challenge participants submitted their designs online and gained feedback from more than 12,000 designers and enthusiasts. Out of 150 design entries, Victor Garcia’s FLYPMode design was named the winner of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Experimental Crowd-Derived Combat-Support Vehicle (XC2V) design challenge and was then built into a working prototype.
