Program Background
The Commercial High Performance Vehicle Industry faces many of
the same challenges as the U.S. Military in developing and
operating wheeled vehicles
A few of the areas of vehicle design and performance faced by
both military designers and their civilian counterparts include:
 Vehicle safety
 Power train reliability/performance
 Suspension
 Braking system
 High-strength/light weight materials
 Fuel efficiency
Program Background (cont.)
The objectives of the MVHPC Program are:
• Identify, analyze, and evaluate performance gaps, issues and
concerns associated with Military tactical wheeled vehicles,
• Identify technologies developed by the Motorsports
Industry that show potential for resolving technical
performance issues encountered by Military tactical
wheeled vehicles
- and -
• Foster key relationships between Stakeholders and Subject
Matter Experts within the Government, and representatives
from the Motorsports Industry for continued collaboration
Program Background (cont.)
Our Government customer selected four tactical
wheel vehicles for us to analyze. Those vehicles
 HMMWV – High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled

MVHPC Project
• Purpose - Identify and provide commercially available capabilities & technology
solutions to meet U.S. Military tactical wheeled vehicle challenges &
performance shortfalls for the benefit of the taxpayer, warfighter, and
motorsports industry
• The “how” – Three phase project with near-concurrent and complimentary
activities spanning a 1 year Period of Performance… March 2011 – March 2012
– Phase I – Identification of Military Vehicle gaps and performance shortfalls
• Research and Analysis of FOUR vehicles: HMMWV, ITV, MTVR, and LVSR vehicles
• Culminates with delivery of MVHPC Phase I Report
– Phase II – Commercial Capability Mapping
• Research & Analysis of motorsports capabilities & technologies applicable to Government
vehicle requirements.
• Culminates with delivery of a Capabilities Source List and Technology Portfolio
– Phase III – Potential Integration
• Identification and delivery of commercially available capabilities & technologies identified
as potentially beneficial for modification or acquisition
• Culminates with delivery of a TWV Technology Opportunities Guide
Phase II - Commercial Capability
Mapping (Requirements)
• Research of Motorsports Industry - Determine commercial
interest, experience, and available technologies, capabilities, and
expertise to meet military vehicle gaps
 Approach:
Industry research and survey of team, vendor, supplier, and after market motorsports businesses
