Concept Vehicle Points Way for the Military


Edited by Robert H. Williams

A possible replacement for the military’s venerable Humvee may spring from a concept vehicle that was developed by the Georgia Research Institute with funding from the Office of Naval Research. Called the ultra armored patrol vehicle, it is the brainchild of commercial designers and engineers.

Powered by a diesel engine, the patrol vehicle is sheathed in lightweight armor that offers protection against mines and improvised explosive devices. A suite of onboard computers integrates the steering, suspension and brakes.

Giving the armored patrol truck considerable spunk were suggestions from NASCAR and other automotive racing experts.
