Abstract
The Marine Corps in support of the war fighter has identified the need to increase the mobility of the HMMWV platform to conform to the ORD. As operational theaters constantly change and require the HMMWV platform to operate in soils that have a RCI less than the current vehicle VCI the overall ability of the fighting force to operate in terrains as well as avoid common routes is minimized. With the experience GS Engineering has gained on the GMV platform coupled with additional OEM efforts GS Engineering not only has a solid understanding of the challenges of this effort, but also the solutions, products, technologies and vendors that can be compiled into a single team to successful deploy a varying VCI system. GS Engineering fully understands the importance of high fidelity analytical models as well as the actual field test data because of our experience both in successful SBIR efforts as well as our other corporate activities supporting OEM vehicle testing and development. GS Engineering"s experience will be a force multiplier when combined with the system level vehicle integration experience on the HMMWV and our proven ability to develop mobility systems for both wheel and tracked vehicle platforms.
