new high-tech Tank

The DARPA‘s new high-tech tank, of the Ground X-Vehicle Technology (GXV-T) program, is improving the survivability of ground-based armored fighting vehicles by increasing vehicle agility.   Watch the video…

The DARPA’s high-tech tank GXV-T design is based on the ability to autonomously avoid incoming threats, “either by rapidly moving out of the way or reconfiguring the vehicle so incoming threats have a low probability of hitting and penetrating, all without injuring the occupants in the process.”

The video illustrates three of many potential approaches: active repositioning of armor, burst acceleration and suspensions that would enable the vehicle to dodge.
