Meritor Defense Launches Electronic Systems To Improve Maneuverability Of Military Vehicles

TROY, Mich., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Two new electronic systems from Meritor, Inc. (NYSE:MTOR) are keeping military vehicles rolling through various terrains and extreme conditions with outstanding traction and mobility.

Building on Meritor's heritage of advanced engineering, SmartFlow™ Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) and DriveCommand™ Drivetrain Control (DTC) deliver customized tire pressure and drivetrain management through mud, sand and snow, on highways and cross-country, and in emergency situations.

"Both systems improve vehicle performance for warfighters in extreme conditions because drivers can easily control tire pressure, differential locking and transfer case positioning," said Tim Burns, vice president, North America, Meritor. "Our engineering investment in developing these two electronic systems extends our defense product line to include wheel valves and electronics. The systems can potentially cross over into other segments, including commercial vehicle."

These lightweight systems are controlled independently by a single Human Machine Interface (HMI) unit and mount easily in the cab or on the chassis of High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) and Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV). The U.S. Army and Marine Corps are expected to be first-time users of the systems, which can be integrated into any military vehicle with an onboard air compressor.
