Oshkosh Defense LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, exhibited at Modern Day Marine in Washington, D.C. from June 27-30, 2023. On display is the highly versatile Oshkosh Defense Special Purpose All-Terrain Vehicle (S-ATV) and the autonomous, flexible Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV). Oshkosh Defense leadership will be available to discuss the company’s entire portfolio of vehicles, mobility systems, and leading-edge technologies. The Oshkosh S-ATV was developed as concept vehicle to demonstrate the transportability, speed, and durability necessary to face emerging and evolving threats.
Lighter than a JLTV, with like-mobility, the S-ATV is optimized to carry greater payload in unconventional reconnaissance missions, enabling the Warfighter to deploy with stealth and agility in the most severe terrain. The S-ATV’s world-class suspension system has been proven to maximize mobility over the most rugged off-road terrain, completing the 400-hour NATO durability test. And its lightweight configuration was specifically designed to allow both external and internal helicopter transportability, as well as transport by CH-47 and CH-53 helicopters; C-130, C-5, C-17 and A400 Cargo fixed-wing aircraft.
“The S-ATV and RCV are prime examples of Oshkosh’s ability to rapidly develop and test concept vehicles and systems that accelerate the capabilities necessary to meet the pacing threat,” said Pat Williams, chief programs officer at Oshkosh Defense “We value our partnership with the Marine Corps and remain committed to providing innovation and disruptive technologies in support of Force Design 2030.”
