Lockheed Martin recently delivered 22 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles to the U.S. Army and Marine Corps under the JLTV program's Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) contract.
The vehicles will be transferred to the U.S. Army's Yuma Test Center in Arizona and to Aberdeen Test Center in Maryland, where Lockheed Martin will support a 14-month period of government evaluation and testing.
"Our team has produced a highly capable, reliable and affordable JLTV for our customers," said Scott Greene, vice president of ground vehicles for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "These vehicles will meet the toughest demands of our Soldiers and Marines. They deserve our best, and that's precisely what we delivered."
After rolling up more than 160,000 combined test miles in the program's Technology Development phase, the Lockheed Martin JLTV was selected for continued development through a $65 million EMD contract from the Army and Marine Corps in August 2012. Lockheed Martin designed its JLTV specifically to meet stated customer requirements for the program, rather than trying to adapt an existing vehicle. The result is a lighter, more blast-resistant and more agile vehicle.
The Lockheed Martin JLTV is designed to be a total solution - engineered from the ground up to balance the "iron triangle" of protection, performance and payload while maintaining affordability.
The vehicle provides greatly improved crew protection and mobility, lower logistical support costs, superior fuel efficiency, exportable power-generation with substantial margin for future growth, and state-of-the-art connectivity with other platforms and systems. A Meritor Pro-TecTM air suspension system contributes to outstanding off-road performance while minimizing crew fatigue.
BAE Systems is responsible for the JLTV's geometrically enhanced protection system, a design that enables levels of blast protection never before achieved in this vehicle class, and for vehicle final assembly.
Oshkosh Defense today marked the delivery of its first Joint Light Tactical Vehicle prototype for government testing following a successful vehicle inspection by the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA). The DCMA inspection and vehicle presentation ceremony was attended by representatives from the JLTV Joint Program Office, DCMA and Oshkosh Defense, according to a press release

The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) Team led by Lockheed Martin has responded to a Request for Information for a lighter, more maneuverable military vehicle that also provides protection comparable to the Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicle. "Our solution, the Lockheed Martin Combat Vehicle-Light (CVL), is an extension of Lockheed Martin's JLTV family of vehicles and combines MRAP-level protection with superior mobility, agility and payload capacity," said Louis DeSantis, vice president and general manager of Ground Vehicle Systems at Lockheed Martin
The Lockheed Martin Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) team successfully completed the government's Manufacturing Readiness Assessment (MRA), an important milestone on the path to vehicle production. The MRA, which measures manufacturing maturity and assesses technical risk, took place at Lockheed Martin's Camden Operations on Nov
The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program has entered the final phase of testing with the delivery of sixty-six vehicles prototypes to replace Humvee in near future. The vehicles — made by AM General, Lockheed Martin and Oshkosh, started 14 months of rigorous testing and evaluations during the first week of September
