Enhanced Tactical Transportability (ETT) / Enhanced Tactical Mobility (ETM) HMMWV Kits: As envisioned, the ETT and ETM Kits can be applied to existing HMMWVs in the military fleet and provide an immediate and affordable solution for customers who need to rapidly deploy, employ, and re-deploy in support of strategic, operational and tactical power projection operations with minimal preparation. The ETM kit can be quickly and easily installed on a HMMWV by a unit maintenance team, and the ETT kit can be installed at the installation level. Once the kits are installed, the vehicles transport up to 9 soldiers, offer stable firing platforms for squad weapons and fit inside a CH-47 helicopter without major and costly logistical changes to training, maintenance procedures and supply support.
