Integrated Smart V Solution

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- BAE Systems introduced a lightweight monocoque V-hull HMMWV recap solution called the Integrated Smart V (ISV ), at the Association of the U.S. Army's (AUSA) 2010 Annual Meeting.

The innovative solution leverages the company's legacy of mine protection and survivability experience to offer a highly survivable, high-mobility multipurpose vehicle at a low-cost for the U.S. Army.

The central component of the ISV solution is a layered monocoque hull with a V-shaped underbody that totally encapsulates the crew, providing protection from all sides through an integrated hull that significantly boosts underbody blast protection. The design is based on fielded, battle proven solutions from BAE Systems' mine-resistant vehicles used around the world.

"The ISV is cleverly designed to respond intuitively to side and underbody mine blast impacts," said Chris Chambers, line lead for BAE Systems. "By using clips attached to the monocoque V-hull, the ISV provides a rigid, uncompromising protection solution at an affordable price," Chambers added.

ISV reuses a large percentage of existing HMMWV components, including the power train and wheel assemblies, thereby saving on production and training costs. Sustainment savings come through ISV modularity, allowing battle damaged vehicles to be repaired in the field and enabling future upgrades.

BAE Systems' ISV solution is built on mature V-hull technology that is currently in production on light tactical vehicles. The ISV allows the U.S. Armed Forces to quickly realize significant improvements in HMMWV survivability for current and future operations.
