Unmanned Stealth Armored Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle
Unmanned Stealth Armored Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle
(USAMWV; colloquial: Usamvee)
Modification for Army and Marine Corps units, police and sheriff's assault units, FBI, DEA, ATF, USMS, CBP, USSS, National Guard, firefighting, rescue and forestry services. Can be offered as a prototype for programs DARPA, GXV-T, JLTV, MPC, ACV and Bundeswehr (Waffensysteme und Großgerät). "The tactical mission is to keep passengers from getting hit by anti-tank missiles and shells, from pressure mines, and to keep people inside alive if the mine detonates manually. In addition, to provide fire cover during embarkation and disembarkation."
for military and special operations forces:
- Transport and assault vehicle for 8-12 people - Patrol vehicle (fully unmanned, no passengers) - Ambulance (4 litter and 4 ambulatory patients and medical attendants) - Engineering vehicle - Command vehicle
for firefighting, rescue and forestry services:
- Unmanned firefighter vanguard vehicle with water and reagent supply for the foam mixing station - Engineering vehicle for water supply feeding route at landscape hotspots - Towing up to 3 trailers of self-contained diesel-powered booster engines - Rescue vehicle for evacuations during floods, forest and man-made fires, hurricane winds
A. Operational cover and evacuation in case of explosion or ambush B. In the vanguard without passengers far ahead - tasks of escorting a convoy with people behind and protection from pressure mines (safe track) C. Launching and landing pad for observation and combat drones
Exterior, driving and controlling
- Completely unmanned control (UGV), connectable manual control with joystick or remote control - Pre-emptive launch of countermeasures and unpredictable trajectory movement mode to complicate targeting (diagonal at different speeds) - Permanent movement mode even when the transport convoy is blocked to make targeting difficult and for evasive maneuvers - Turning 360° around the point of the frontal armor toward the enemy's attack for greater projectile deflection, deformation, and ricochet effect, and to increase armor thickness through the body's angle of inclination to the projectile's angle of attack - More stable trajectory in the water, speed up to 26 knots, controllability and maneuverability on the waterjet, allowing to fight until reaching land - Retractable dual-sensor detectors for metal and non-metal mines as well as improvised explosive devices (IEDs), search head with a metal detector (MD), and ground-penetrating radar (GPR) - Mode of data exchange and coordination of trajectories between unmanned vehicles in the convoy - Acoustic low-visibility - low noise of electric motors located in sealed enclosures, elastic tread plates that reduce tire slippage - Radar stealth - snakeskin type geometry and radar-absorbing polymer coating to reduce radar reflectivity - Infrared low-visibility - insulated casing, no exhaust plume, bimetallic radiator incorporated in the bottom - Visual low visibility - painting in OCP, AOR2, ABU, Flecktarn, Tropentarn camouflage, etc.
Protection and safety
- Artificial Intelligence-based monitoring of firing positions and likely threats (Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System - CT2WS) - Launch control and trajectory estimation of anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM, ATGW), infrared and electronic countermeasures, cloaking devices (smoke shells), evasive maneuver on missile or shell flight - Completely without lights and indicators (temporary on magnets) - No windows or mirrors at all (instead, cameras, monitors and AR HUD helmets for passengers - 360° visibility, digital zoom, infrared illumination and cameras, computer vision and threat assessment, situational awareness much higher) - Less hydrodynamic noise when moving in water - STANAG 4569 level 2 ballistic protection against shrapnel and bullets in flight, and thermal protection body with composite technology, made of Finnish MiiLux Protection steel and para-aramid fabric ALKEX (Hyosung, Korea) - Composite non-energetic reactive armor (NERA): 6 mm steel + 74 mm reinforced polymer elastomer + 18 mm silicon carbide ceramic + 2 mm steel + polyurethane foam thermal insulation + thin-sheet steel inner liner, honeycomb structure of separated cells - Effective resistance to cumulative charges and explosive penetrators (EFP) due to the viscosity of the polymer and simultaneously the high strength and thermal resistance of the reinforcing fibers and ceramics - Modular armor can be additionally used if required - Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP Category 1 & 2) - V-shaped steel hull and V-shaped bottom plate design, reinforced armor and concealed ribs
Inside space & Electronics
- 8 folding passenger seats in 2 rows (face-to-face) plus large luggage compartment 350 cft - Wide doorways for the 2 main side entrances, combined with face-to-face boarding, ensure a embarkation and disembarkation time of less than 8 seconds (vs. 17 sec. for MPC) - Equipped with thermal imaging cameras, high definition and infrared night vision cameras, lidars, ultrasonic sensors - Equipped with antennas: UHF SATCOM, VHF, UHF Milti-Function, Satellite Navigation, Drones Radio Control, Drones Satellite Control
