New Hudson, MI –Pratt Miller Engineering (PME) joined Northrop Grumman at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. as the global security company revealed their newest military ground vehicle, Hellhound.
Hellhound will serve as Northrop Grumman’s contender in the U.S. Army’s Light Reconnaissance Vehicle (LRV) competition. The purpose-built truck was designed to meet the requirements specific to LRV, which include providing a vehicle with a balanced mix of capabilities in the areas of mobility, lethality, protection, and C4ISR.
In partnership with Northrop Grumman, PME supported the design, engineering, and fabrication of the vehicle including the innovative chassis, suspension, and drivetrain systems. PME also performed vehicle integration, development, and testing in support of the Northrop Grumman initiative.
“Partnering with Northrop Grumman on the Hellhound effort has been a great experience for our team. Seeing the overwhelming and positive attention from everyone at AUSA, but most importantly the reaction from the men and women that Hellhound was built for, was very rewarding,” said Ray Errer, Pratt Miller Program Manager on the project.
