Oshkosh Defense Demo

Oshkosh Defense, LLC will be displaying their Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) in addition to a digital twin on the show floor. The JLTV fills a critical capability gap for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps by replacing a large portion of the legacy uparmored HMMWV fleet with a modern light tactical vehicle. The JLTV provides MRAP-level protection while delivering best-in-class off-road mobility in a highly transportable package. This exhibition will demonstrate how to best manage and utilize IoT, AR and PLM data to create BOMS, remote access and monitoring of real time data, reduce engineering analysis gaps, and more. Specially, how Augmented Reality enabled condition based maintenance improves safety, lowers maintenance costs and increases the effectiveness of the JLTV and the warfighter in the field.
