This year’s Tactical Vehicles Summit will focus on the challenges ahead for the JLTV, MRAP, HMMWV ECV and MTVR/LVSR, including what will be done in the coming year to address the shifting priorities and vehicle requirements in OCOs.
The drawdown in Iraq and shift to a long-term, sustainment strategy in Afghanistan mean that now more than ever the military must develop vehicles adequate for these new missions. Shifting theater requirements and budget realities dictate that the tactical vehicles community reposition itself accordingly.
As new vehicle platforms emerge to meet the military’s needs and challenges, problems with ballistic requirements, logistics, vehicle armor and modernization fleet come into view. As the battlefield continues to evolve, the need for a tactical vehicle that can improve survivability and maneuverability while effectively meeting specific mission requirements is increasingly pressing.
