Project Announcement: Advanced Braking and Suspension Systems to Improve Reliability and Reduce Maintenance – Phase IV

The US Army is partnering with industry and academia on a multi-phase CTMA initiative to conduct a pilot program to develop a process necessary to modify a commercial-off-the-shelf advanced braking and suspension system, which will be integrated onto a legacy military vehicle to demonstrate improved reliability, readiness, and safety and reduce maintenance and sustainment costs. Phase IV will focus on developing new training curriculum and tools for technicians and maintainers to support retrofit and maintenance activities in overseas maintenance and sustainment facilities, conducting supply chain risk management assessment and implementing mitigation measures to ensure availability of key parts and components of the kits and determine options to address microelectronics obsolescence in control hardware.
