Oshkosh Defense will display an FMTV with TerraMax unmanned ground vehicle technology at this year's AUSA Annual Meeting and Exhibition.  TerraMax technology reduces soldiers' exposure to battlefield threats.


Oshkosh Corp.'s Defense division will showcase a U.S. Army vehicle equipped with Oshkosh TerraMax unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) technology at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition. The TerraMax technology delivers improved troop protection by reducing human exposure to battlefield threats, such as improvised explosive devices (IED), and increasing situational awareness while the vehicle is on the move. The Oshkosh Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) Load Handling System (LHS) variant is equipped with the company’s unmanned technology for autonomous logistics missions. The TerraMax fully autonomous navigation kit has been demonstrated on the Marine Corps’ Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) 4x4 and 6x6 vehicles, as well as the Army’s Palletized Load System (PLS) vehicle. Oshkosh Defense has been awarded a five-year FMTV contract for the production of an estimated 23,000 trucks and trailers, as well as support services and training through fiscal 2014.
