More than a half century ago, Meritor began
supplying drivetrain components to military fleets. Today, we are one of
the world’s largest independent drivetrain producers for
tactical-wheeled vehicles. Meritor provides systems for a complete range
of lightweight and heavyweight vehicles, armored personnel and
advanced-wheeled combat vehicles for all types of terrains.
The ProTec High Mobility Independent Suspension
(HMIS) Series delivers the Iron Triangle: Payload, Performance and
Protection – the three absolute must-haves for the military. ProTec is a
time-tested suspension designed for tactical-wheeled military vehicles
and armored personnel carriers, as well as specialty and off-highway
applications. It was launched to meet the demands of the customer for
superior force protection, unmatched mobility and unparalleled ride
Defense’s technologies are specifically engineered for military mission
profiles and duty cycles and are proven to perform on all types of
terrain. Our enhanced solutions for both the High Mobility Multipurpose
Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) and Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) programs
feature the ProTec™ Series 30 HMIS.
The ProTec HMIS series is available in three configurations:
Series 30 for light duty applications requiring gross axle weight
ratings (GAWRs) up to 14,000 pounds; Series 40 for medium and
medium-heavy duty applications requiring GAWRs up to 23,000 pounds; and
Series 50 for heavy-duty applications requiring GAWRs up to 29,000
Building on Meritor’s heritage of advanced
engineering, SmartFlow™ Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) and
DriveCommand™ Drivetrain Control (DTC) deliver customized tire pressure
and drivetrain management through mud, sand and snow, on highways and
cross-country, and in emergency situations. SmartFlow CTIS automatically
monitors and adjusts tire inflation as needed with a single pneumatic
control unit, whether the vehicle is in motion or stationary. Tire
pressure can be altered to tires independently or through all four tires
simultaneously. DriveCommand DTC engages automatically when the driver
selects a mobility mode on the HMI panel, locking the differentials and
transfer case function.
Meritor takes great pride in having the opportunity to deliver
advanced technology solutions for military and government applications.
We will continue providing the technology and global support needed to
meet every challenge.
