Meritor Defense SmartFlow CTIS in MudSandSnow Mode (2).jpg

Meritor offers two lightweight electronic systems that allow drivers to control tire pressure, differential locking, and transfer case positioning to improve military vehicle performance and traction in various terrains and extreme conditions. The SmartFlow central tire inflation system (CTIS) and DriveCommand drivetrain control (DTC) deliver customized tire pressure and drivetrain management through mud, sand, and snow both on- and off-highway. Integrated into any military vehicle with an onboard air compressor, the systems are controlled by a single human machine interface unit and mount in the cab or on the chassis of multipurpose wheeled and joint light tactical vehicles. CTIS automatically monitors and adjusts tire inflation as needed with a single pneumatic control unit, while DTC engages when the driver selects a mobility mode on the panel.
