 ProTec™ High-Mobility Independent Suspension

 

Our new ProTec™ High Mobility Independent Suspension (HMIS) series delivers the Iron Triangle of Payload, Performance and Protection - representing the three absolute must-haves for the military market. ProTec - built for tactical wheeled military vehicles and armored personnel carriers as well as specialty and off-highway applications - is the only product family that builds a foundation of strength under every corner of the Iron Triangle. Launched in response to customer demands for superior force protection, unmatched mobility and unparalleled ride quality, ProTec comes in a weight-efficient package. 

The ProTec HMIS series is available in three configurations - Series 30 for applications requiring GAWRs up to 14,000 lbs., Series 40 for applications requiring GAWRs up to 23,000 lbs., and Series 50 for applications requiring GAWRs up to 29,000 lbs.

Meritor's ProTec HMIS has been integrated into several key current and future applications in support of the warfighter, including the Caiman MTV Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle, the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, the Marine Personnel Carrier Technology Demonstrator and the British Ministry of Defense TSV.
