The Multipurpose Troop Transport Carrier System (MTTCS) from Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., converts a standard military vehicle into an armored troop carrier.
The MTTCS is designed to enhance the soldier's ability: first, to get safely to the objective by providing defensive means of deflecting assaults against convoys; second, to remain in a fixed location and support defensive positions.
- The modular nature of the system allows configurations that can be mounted on the cargo bed of a variety of standard military trucks and trailers, and can be quickly configured as troop carriers, medical evacuation units, or cargo carriers.
- MTTCS can transport up to 10 people and their associated gear while countering the ballistic threats of small-arms fire, up to and including 7.62 mm AP, and most fragmentation from Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast threats.
- The system is modularly packaged to enable the soldiers or unit-of-action (UA) to remain in a fixed location for extended periods of time and sustain adequate security for a single soldier or a UA to support defensive positions.
- The MTTCS has been test proven by the Rapid Equipping Force at the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command, and has undergone combat operational evaluation under REF sponsorship in Iraq.
