Supacat’s All Terrain Mobility Platform (ATMP) will undergo a modernisation programme to manage obsolescence issues and support future hybrid development and automisation.

The modernisation programme will involve updating the engine and drive train while also managing legislative requirements and human-machine interface. It will also integrate a hybrid drive train into the platform.

Supacat and the University of Exeter are working together to develop the alternative drive solution.

The hybrid ATMP will offer a reduced logistic burden, a silent running mode and a mobile battery charging platform. Supacat intends to fully autonomise the ATMP, developing the mule concept of follow-on vehicles and opening up a number of new capability options. A technical demonstrator with hybrid drive and novel fuel cells will be built in the first half on 2019.

A second programme, starting in October 2019, will create an optionally manned demonstrator, leveraging development of the hybrid demonstrator. This will incorporate elements of autonomous operation which will be of benefit to both users operating in dangerous or challenging environments.
