Oshkosh announced today that its Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle (L-ATV) successfully completed Limited User Testing (LUT) with the US Army and Marine Corps for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) contract.
The completed LUT focused on the JLTV system capabilities, functions, operations and interfaces in a range of simulated tactical environments. It also covered operator and crew level preventive maintenance for the entire JLTV system; ensuring operators could proficiently and safely operate the JLTV during test and evaluation.
The Army user testing was conducted in September and October. Three of the tests were held as 96-hour cycles meant to simulate operational missions, and one of the tests incorporated a live fire demonstration. The Marines similarly completed two test cycles in October and November, including one with a live fire demonstration.
US Army Major General (Retired) John Urias, executive vice president of Oshkosh Corporation and president of Oshkosh Defense said, “Our JLTV solution draws upon real-world experience gained from supporting the ground operations that our Soldiers and Marines perform every day. In fact, no other Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) has launched and supported more successful tactical wheeled vehicle production programs than Oshkosh.”
