17 April 1995 Active suspension technology for combat vehicles
Author Affiliations +
Active and semiactive suspension systems have been a major research area for the last three decades. In the last ten years this research has spawned various experimental vehicles and finally even production applications of active and semiactive systems. The majority of the work has been to support commercial, and primarily on-road vehicle applications. This paper discusses the potential impact of this technology on military vehicles and describes the numerous recent activities within the US Army to extend the technology to enhance the off-road mobility of combat vehicles. Comparative field trial results are included along with simulation results for as yet untested vehicle configurations.
