AUSA 2021: Allison Transmission to drive US Army vehicle electrification
Allison Transmission, in coordination with US Army’s Ground Vehicle Systems Center, is to accelerate the Next Generation Electrified Transmission programme.
Allison will design, develop and validate a motor/generator and inverter system to be coupled to a tracked vehicle transmission.
Electrifying vehicles will provide the army with silent mobility, reducing detection probability and increasing survivability, exportable power provision for onboard and offboard systems, and flexible operational modes capable of balancing performance and fuel economy demands.
The US Army is also considering options for new tanks and replacing its heavy wheeled vehicle fleets with a Common Tactical Truck, both options are likely to rely on electrification.
