Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles GmbH (RMMV) has partnered with Australia’s Supashock to develop a military suspension and integrated intelligent load handling system for its range of military trucks.
RMMV has funded Supashock to develop the system for the Australian and global markets, Rheinmetall announced Monday.
The system integrates Supashock’s novel active suspension technology with an intelligent load handling system and will substantially increase the capability and safety of RMMV’s military trucks in demanding on and off-road environments.
Through comparative testing, Supashock’s suspension technology has been shown to substantially improve the mobility of RMMV’s trucks, while at the same time enhancing on-road safety and reducing the shock and vibration experienced by the load that the truck is carrying.
Rheinmetall sees broad application of the integrated intelligent load handling system and Supashock’s suspension technology on both Australian and international programs.
Rheinmetall’s investment in Supashock is on the back of an Australian Federal government entrepreneurs grant that was recently announced by the Australian Minister for Defence Industry, Christopher Pyne.
