AUSA 2017: GM SURUS about UGVs

11th October 2017 - 20:00 GMT | by Damian Kemp in Washington DC


GM has unveiled its Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure (SURUS), a large multipurpose hydrogen-electric UGV at the AUSA exhibition in Washington DC. 

Based on commercial technology, the platform would likely be first proven in non-military scenarios with a stable geofenced environment, such as docks, but there are obvious military applications.

The vehicle is based on two GMC Sierra 3500HD chassis joined together but is only five months into development so remains a concept with no trials having taken place yet. It is powered by the company’s second-generation HyrdoTec cell with water recovery system and can export 50-80kW of power.
