Abstract:

Adaptable soldiers need a highly adaptable, high performance vehicle. The most powerful solution is not to have a single all-purpose vehicle, but rather to have a set of universal modular components that can be configured into whatever vehicle isnecessary for the task at hand. A single vehicle would be constructed of as many as 100 universal components, with each component weighing anywhere from 50 to 100 pounds. Each component includes universal joints for physical, stable connections, as wellas power and data transfer. Much like an erector set, this modular vehicle could be carried or transported in pieces, and then placed together into any configuration as necessary. A group of 20 soldiers, each carrying a single component, can combinetheir components to make up four small, light dune-buggy type vehicles, a road-worthy vehicle, or a boat for crossing a river. No special engineering skills are necessary, as all the components are
