Innovative Wheel Control Technologies for Mechanical Counter Mine Equipment
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
GS Engineering (GSE) will develop improvements to current US Army mine rollers that will improve ground-following performance and reduce wheel hop by 50 f?" 90%, with increased mobility and increased effective threat clearing speed. This will be accomplished by applying advanced suspension technologies to the system, subsystem design changes for improved dynamic stability at high speeds, subsystem improvements for more efficient application of roller down force, and structural optimization of the roller arm assembly. These improvements will also lead to reduced power requirements. GSEf?Ts initial designs have predicted significant performance improvements by reducing wheel hop by over 90%, as compared to current SPARK mine rollers.
