Team Oshkosh and TerraMax® Complete Qualifying Test for the DARPA Urban Challenge Event

OSHKOSH, Wis. – July 3, 2007 – Oshkosh Truck Corporation (NYSE:OSK) announced today that Team Oshkosh’s TerraMax® unmanned ground vehicle successfully completed the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) site visit in preparation for the 2007 Urban Challenge. The testing took place at an Oshkosh Truck facility with DARPA officials, and included unmanned navigation for intersection precedence, y-turns, route planning and stationary vehicle avoidance. Invitations to participate in the National Qualification Event will be announced on August 9, 2007.

The unmanned vehicles participating in the DARPA race will take place at a yet undisclosed location on November 3, 2007, with a $2 million prize. The race calls for teams to compete to build an autonomous vehicle able to complete a 60-mile urban course safely in less than six hours.

Team Oshkosh is using one of its standard military vehicles, the Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR), as the basis for the TerraMax vehicle. The MTVR is currently used by the U.S. Marine Corps to carry critical supplies, such as food, water and fuel during missions.

Oshkosh Truck has partnered with Teledyne Scientific Company, The University of Parma in Italy, Auburn University in Alabama and Ibeo Automobile Sensor GmbH to help develop these capabilities. Caterpillar, who supplies engines for many Oshkosh Truck vehicles, has joined Team Oshkosh as a Gold sponsor.
