General Dynamics Unveils Tracked Robot 10-Ton (TRX) at AUSA 2021

Tracked Robot 10-Ton (TRX) is a part of the Robotic Combat Vehicle-Medium (RCV-M) class, TRX features innovative thinking, ranging from its AI-enhanced design to advanced, lightweight materials and a hybrid-electric propulsion system. TRX sets a new best-in-class payload capacity to accommodate any mission equipment package. TRX’s power and size make it an ideal platform for multirole MUM-T on today’s battlefield. TRX is positioned to provide superior performance as an enabling technology in a myriad of critical battlefield roles, including direct and indirect fire, autonomous resupply, complex obstacle breaching, counter-unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS), electronic warfare (EW), reconnaissance and other battlefield missions.

General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) is continuing to develop its Tracked Robot 10-Ton (TRX) by testing it out for the US Army at different events in preparation for the service’s 2022 robotic combat vehicle (RCV) soldier experiment. In the latter half of 2020 the company unveiled the TRX and billed it as a potential competitor for an army RCV-Medium (RCV-M) competition. This was General Dynamics Land Systems first demonstration in a relevant environment with the TRX In the intervening time, GDLS has continued developing the tracked, flattop unmanned ground vehicle.

Based on this field experiment, GDLS is improving several vehicle items including its suspension system, how its lights work, and refining how the cargo is mounted on top of the platform. General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) has introduced its TL1 unmanned vehicle concept developed for the U.S. Army’s Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) program, at AUSA 2019 Exposition. According to the company, the TL1 is designed to exceed Army objectives for weight and payload for the Robotic Combat Vehicle-Light (RCV-L) and the RCV-Medium (RCV-M) programs. The U.S. Army is developing a family of armed unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) through its Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) program, under the larger Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) program.
