Paper Abstract

The Hybrid Electric Drive Active Suspension HMMWV integrates a Pentastar Hybrid Electric Drive and a Lotus Active Suspension System into a modified HMMWV, for missions that require capabilities beyond those of a standard HMMWV. This vehicle combines the improved off road mobility of a fully active suspension system, with the numerous additional capabilities of the hybrid electric drive system. The hybrid electric drive system enables the HMMWV to perform a variety of new missions such as; manned surveillance-stealth operations, unmanned-robotic surveillance and reconnaissance, advanced weapon system platform for systems requiring more electric power than available from a standard HMMWV, and forward area high quality power source.
