Oshkosh Defense Exhibits L-ATV Command and Control Capabilities at AUSA 2019
OSHKOSH, Wis. (October 14, 2019) — Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, will display three Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) and for the first time ever, a Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle Command and Control (L-ATV C2), at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) National Conference. The vehicles will be on display at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C., from October 14 to October 16, 2019.
“The JLTV fleet provides our armed forces a critical combination of protection and extreme off-road mobility to ensure reliable maneuverability within combat formations,” said George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of joint programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The L-ATV C2 provides the same level of protection and extreme off-road mobility as our already fielded JLTV platform. In addition, the L-ATV C2 houses a robust communications suite, giving our armed forces the unique and highly-desirable advantage of staying well-connected while on the move.”
Oshkosh Defense partnered with L3Harris Technologies to demonstrate a communications suite capability, representing just one of the ways a mobile command center can be configured on the back of a highly mobile light tactical wheeled vehicle. The L-ATV C2 has ample available power and configuration flexibility to adjust and modify its interior – depending on the needs of the commander and the crew. “The L-ATV C2 allows commanders to quickly maneuver on the battlefield, directing dismounted units using assured communications provided by the integrated C4 equipment,” concluded Mansfield. Further, the modular nature of the interior can accommodate any number of workstations and/or communications equipment rack locations to provide optional layouts that work for personalized missions and the crew carrying them out.
The L-ATV C2 will also feature a Black Hornet Vehicle Reconnaissance System (VRS) made by FLIR. The Black Hornet equips armored or mechanized vehicles with an immediate, organic, and self-contained surveillance and reconnaissance system.
Oshkosh will also display a 2-door Utility JLTV in their booth, outfitted with the Uvision Hero-120 Tactical System. Ideal for anti-tank missions or other strategic objectives, the Hero-120 is the largest of Univision’s short-range systems. It carries a 3.5 kg warhead and can ensure an extended flight time of 60 minutes.
Elbit Systems will display a 2-door Utility JLTV equipped with a SPEAR in their booth. Elbit’s SPEAR is a fully autonomous, vehicle-mounted 120mm soft recoil mortar system for high-mobility platforms.
An additional 4-door General Purpose JLTV will be on display at AUSA in Kongsberg’s booth. This JLTV will be equipped with the Javelin Integration Kit (JIK) and an LW30 Remote Weapon Station (RWS).
Oshkosh Defense leadership will be available to discuss the Oshkosh JLTVs and the L-ATV C2 on display as well as the company’s entire portfolio of vehicles, technologies, and integration capabilities. Visit us at AUSA 2019 at booth #6631.
