Oshkosh Defense to integrate camera systems on M-ATVs

  • 22-Oct-2009 09:42 EDT

Oshkosh Corp.’s Defense Segment received a $33 million award from the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command (TACOM LCMC) to supply a rear-mounted camera system on more than 2200 MRAP All Terrain Vehicles (M-ATV) to provide improved situational awareness for vehicle occupants. The camera system, which integrates with existing vehicle video displays, provides a 40° vertical and 54° horizontal field of view. The system uses an IR camera core in an LED-equipped tailgate assembly and provides visibility through dust, obscurants, and incremental weather in day and night operations.
