ANALYSIS OF AN INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION FOR USE ON FUTURE MEDIUM TACTICAL TRUCKS

The independent suspension on the Advanced Technology Demonstrator II (ATD-II) was tested to determine how it compares with the solid axle suspension on the current M923A1. It was found that: 1) the independent suspension weighs more than the solid axle suspension; 2) the ATD-II absorbed less power over the test courses simulating real world terrain; and, 3) the ATD-II absorbed less power due to a shock caused by an abrupt obstacle in the terrain.
