Army Tank R&D Center Showcases Next-Gen Mobility Software Program to NATO Allies

1 min read

The U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center demonstrated to NATO representatives a new military mobility software at Michigan Technological University's Keweenaw Research Center in early October, Defense News reported Monday.

The initiative, which was called Next-Generation NATO Reference Mobility Model development demo, was put in place in an effort to help NATO allies gain knowledge of platforms they can easily transport all over Europe.

TARDEC researchers unveiled the difference between legacy and next-generation mobility software programs, highlighting modems with computing power that can assess how military vehicles perform in different terrains under varied environmental conditions.

Marta Kepe, a defense, security and infrastructure analyst at Rand, said challenges that influence the movement of military land platforms across Europe include "the conditions of transport infrastructure; multinational, cross-border and national level-movement coordination, including between military users of infrastructure and the civilian managers; and national legal requirements."
