Northrop Grumman has unveiled its High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) modernization solution at the Association of the United States Army conference inWashington, D.C.
"The HMMWV has had an enduring role in the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and across the international ground forces community for decades," said Frank Simpkins, director, land forces programs, Northrop Grumman Technical Services. "By leveraging our customer mission and platform knowledge and assembling a best-in-class industry team, we believe Northrop Grumman has a tremendous offering that would appeal to every member of the global HMMWV community."
Northrop Grumman partnered with Meritor Defense and Pratt & Miller Engineering on the solution, which extends the life of the HMMWV while significantly lowering sustainment costs and increasing fuel efficiency.
"By combining the latest commercially available technologies from the automotive industry with our company expertise in systems engineering and ground vehicle sustainment, we believe our HMMWV offering delivers great value to all HMMWV customers," said Jeff Wood, director, vehicle modernization, Northrop Grumman Technical Services. "The benefit our solution provides to all global HMMWV fleets is an optimal balance between payload, performance and protection while lowering total life-cycle costs and delivering a platform that can once again effectively carry out myriad missions."
Northrop Grumman announced Tuesday that it has designed new Humvee Chassis that can restore vehicles original mobility and payload capabilities without affecting the level of protection, National Defense Magazine reported. Greg Schmidt, vice president and general manager for Northrop Grumman Technical Services said that it will reveal more information of the new design during the Association of the US Army (AUSA) annual meeting and exposition next week in Washington DC
