Chris Yakes: Oshkosh Continues Unmanned Ground Vehicle Work with Navy

ArmyGroundVehicleOshkosh Corp.’s (NYSE: OSK) defense division will help the Office of Naval Research integrate counter-improvised explosive device technologies into an unmanned ground vehicle.

Chris Yakes, vice president of advanced products engineering at Oshkosh, said Wednesday the company will continue to work with ONR to demonstrate the interoperability of the TerraMax UGV technology with other systems.

Oshkosh, the Robotics Technology Consortium, National Robotics Engineering Center, ONR and the Naval Surface Warfare Center will collaborate to combine two medium tactical vehicle replacements with the TerraMax systems for unmanned functions.

The team will build the TerraMax UGV system to incorporate ground radar and mine roller systems for C-IED missions and TerraMax OCU will work to transmit situational data to manned vehicles.

The UGV project began in 2010 when the Marine Corps installed the technology on its tactical wheeled vehicle fleet and the current work is scheduled for concept demonstration in 2015.
