The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps have demonstrated new military vehicles at the 2014 Sea-Air-Space Exposition held last week at National Harbor, Md., Federal News Radio reported Friday.
Michael O’Connell writes the Marines’ V-22 OspreyÂ aircraft and theÂ NavalÂ Sea Systems CommandÂ Warfare Centers, Carderock Division‘s Stiletto Maritime Demonstration Platform were presented to the media.
The V-22 and Stiletto were two of the new technologies demonstrated at the maritime exposition organized by the Navy League.
The V-22 is part of theÂ Marine Corps Air Facility-basedÂ Marine Helicopter Squadron One, which supports theÂ White House military office, theÂ Marine Corps Combat Development and Education Command‘s commanding general and the Operational Test and Evaluation Forces commander.
O’Connell reports the targeted 12 V-22s for the HMX-1 squadron is expected for completion by this summer.
Meanwhile, the Stiletto is a facility that provides aÂ military maritime environmentÂ for technology testing by systems developers in a faster process than what the Defense DepartmentÂ currently employs, the report said.
“The main goal of this program is to increase the technology readiness level,” said Rob Tutton, Stiletto’s program manager.
