Summary:
A concept vehicle designed to illustrate potential technology options for improving survivability and mobility in future military combat vehicles is being shown publicly for the first time at a military technology meeting in Virginia. The concept vehicle, known as the ULTRA AP (Armored Patrol), was built to help the U.S. military evaluate multiple science and technology options -- including ballistic and mine protection -- that could benefit future vehicle design.

The ULTRA armored patrol vehicle is a research project funded by the Office of Naval Research and conducted by the Georgia Tech Research Institute. The project's goal was to develop a concept vehicle that illustrates design and technology options for increased survivablity and mobility for future vehicles. (U.S. Navy Photo: John F. Williams)
