September 29-30
Sterling Heights, MI

The 2015 HTUF National Meeting and Technical Exchange was held September 29-30, 2015 in Sterling Heights, Michigan. This event provided an opportunity for HTUF stakeholders (military planners, OEMs, suppliers, and fleets) to exchange information on issues affecting the development and deployment of high-efficiency military and commercial vehicles.  Building on past HTUF events, this was a working meeting that delivered action-oriented outcomes.

The meeting venue was the Defense Corridor Center for Collaboration and Synergy (DC3S – www.defensec3s.com). Briefings and a tour of the vehicle test laboratories at the U.S. Army’s Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) in Warren, Michigan were held on day two.

HTUF WEBINAR SERIES: TRANSITIONING SUPERTRUCK TECH

Transitioning SuperTruck Technologies to Commercial and Military Applications (MTAG)

Over the last five years, the US Department of Energy's SuperTruck teams have worked to develop and integrate advanced technologies from all component systems of the tractor and trailer into one highly-efficient freight-hauling vehicle. Some of their successes have already transitioned to market and are commercially available for fleets and agencies nationwide. Narrowing down the many advancements from SuperTruck and highlighting the most applicable to heavy-duty military platforms, CALSTART Project Engineer Jean-Baptiste Gallo and Associate Project Manager Ted Bloch-Rubin presented this Military Truck Action Group (MTAG) webinar.
