Oshkosh Defense MTVR OBVP Participates at Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration

Category: Defence Industry

OSHKOSH, Wis. -- Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, is demonstrating its Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) with On-Board Vehicle Power (OBVP) at this year’s Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID) in Dahlgren, Va.

The annual Joint Chiefs of Staff-directed exercise began on June 15 and continues each weekday through June 25 at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren.

CWID is an annual event that allows the military and other government agencies to identify solutions to fill current gaps in communications and information sharing capabilities. Selected technology solutions undergo interoperability trials to assess their operational effectiveness.

To demonstrate the export-power capabilities of the MTVR with OBVP at CWID, the vehicle will power an operations center, two Humvees with communications equipment and the Oshkosh display using the company’s diesel-electric drive technology. This is a system that delivers up to 20 percent more power than current systems without reducing mobility. The MTVR with OBVP offers 120 kW of exportable military-grade power while stationary, and in motion provides 21 kW of military-grade power. These features allow the vehicle to satisfy the greater demand for electrical power facilitated by modern military equipment.

“We are living in an age in which military vehicles must not only be able to provide robust transportation capabilities, but also meet any number of additional technological needs,” said Andy Hove, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Defense. “The MTVR with OBVP provides exportable power while maintaining or improving the mission requirements of the vehicle, and CWID is a great forum to demonstrate these advanced technologies.”

Oshkosh’s MTVR is an all-terrain, multipurpose logistics vehicle used by the Marines and Navy Seabees. The vehicle comes in several variants for the transportation of troops, materials or equipment. Since 1998, Oshkosh has supplied the Marines and Seabees with more than 10,000 MTVRs, which have been successfully operating in off-road missions in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world.
