Oshkosh Defense will participate in daily live demonstrations at Eurosatory 2014 to showcase the company’s TerraMax Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) technology. Attendees can observe an Oshkosh MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) equipped with TerraMax UGV and a mine roller autonomously navigating a course that simulates military route clearance missions.

Oshkosh_M-ATVThe TerraMax UGV enables military leaders to remove personnel from leader and/or follower vehicles traveling high-risk routes and provides greater standoff distance from explosive threats. The technology can readily adapt to account for mine rollers, ground penetrating radar, and other emerging systems used for the detection, disruption and pre-detonation of explosive hazards.

The TerraMax UGV is a modular, multi-sensor appliqué kit that can be tightly integrated into new production vehicles or retrofitted onto legacy vehicle platforms. TerraMax UGVs function autonomously across varying terrains and in all weather conditions, day or night – with original vehicle payload and performance retained. It have the proven ability to obey traffic laws, avoid obstacles, travel at self-regulated speeds, operate in adverse weather conditions, during GPS blackout for more than 10 km without performance degradation, navigate rough terrain including off-road routes, maintain prescribed speeds up to 55 kph / 35 mph.
