Paper Abstract

The Advanced Vehicle Technologies (AVT) Program focuses and integrates a series of Advanced Technology Demonstrations (ATDs) aimed at lightening and digitizing future armored/mounted forces for Force XXI. Force modernization potential of ATDs and relevant DoD-Wide vehicle technology developments in advanced optics, countermeasures, and electronics, coupled with common inter-vehicular communication, will demonstrate combat maneuver force deployability and fightability. AVT vehicular technology underway includes: System/ATD integration and simulation overviews, hit avoidance, command and control, target acquisition, advanced crew stations, standard open electronic architecture, electric drive, active suspension, reduced crew driving aids, collision avoidance, robotic convoy, and Single Channel Ground Airborne Radio Systems(SINCGARS) based remote control. These technologies substantially contribute to the Army's Strategic Objectives described above.
