Triton Systems Inc. will work in collaboration with an academic partner to develop a model for a system to dynamically calculate the Center of Gravity (CoG) of a wheeled Squad Multipurpose Equipment Transfer (SMET) vehicle. The Army has tested several SMET vehicles of varying widths and heights and arrived at the conclusion that they ALL roll over, particularly if the vehicle is traversing the terrain sideways. This is true of both tracked and wheeled vehicles. This is in large part because the operator is remote from the vehicle and therefore has no proprioceptive feedback when the vehicle is approaching a tip over condition. It is the intent of the program to address the problem of SMET rollovers.
