MSU-Army partnership to expand
Published: August 31,2009
STARKVILLE — Officials at Mississippi State University’s (MSU) Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS) are anticipating the expansion of a $75-million partnership with the U.S. Army to improve the battlefield effectiveness of ground vehicles.
The five-year Simulation-Based Reliability and Safety program addresses 19 different issues related to ground vehicles’ performance and safety. Ultimately, the project is designed to provide solutions that can both save lives of military personnel and improve the reliability of some very technologically advanced equipment.
After successful results based on the first-year research evaluations, the MSU-led consortium’s achievements working with the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center have shown advances toward improving combat safety and effectiveness, said CAVS director Roger King. As a result, additional Department of Defense support may enable new industrial partners to join the consortium.
