Oshkosh Defense displays Robotic Combat Vehicle at AUSA GFS 2024.

Oshkosh Defense LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation business, is exhibiting at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Global Force Symposium (GFS) 2024 in Huntsville, AL., from March 26-28. On display in Booth #903 will be the Oshkosh Defense Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) and the Remotely Operated Ground Unit for Expeditionary Fires (ROGUE-Fires).

Remotely Operated Ground Unit for Expeditionary Fires (ROGUE-Fires)

Developed for the U.S. Marine Corps and based on the Oshkosh Defense Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), ROGUE-Fires is an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) that combines the JLTV’s extreme off-road mobility, payload capacity and Oshkosh’s advanced autonomous vehicle technologies to provide launcher platform for various weapons payloads.

ROGUE-Fires supports Ground-Based Anti-Ship Missile (GBASM) operations as a component of the Navy/Marine Corps Expeditionary Ship Interdiction System or NMESIS. The unmanned technology associated with ROGUE-Fires allows the vehicle to operate in teleoperated or autonomous modes.

In October 2023, Oshkosh announced it was awarded the contract to begin low-rate initial production from the Marine Corps Systems Command.

Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV)

Oshkosh Defense and partners, Pratt Miller Defense and QinetiQ, continue to prepare for the delivery of two platform prototypes in August 2024 for government testing under the Platform Prototype Ground Vehicle Systems Other Transaction Agreement (GVS OTA). Optimized through iterations of test and Soldier feedback, the Oshkosh RCV delivers a mature platform with proven performance and maintainability with the flexibility to accommodate the U.S. Army’s priority mission packages.

During AUSA GFS 2024, the Oshkosh RCV will showcase the platform’s versatility and capabilities to support advanced weapon systems with the integration of the Kongsberg Protector RS6 and the CACI Expeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS) Full Spectrum Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS).

“The RCV and ROGUE Fires exemplify Oshkosh’s commitment to innovation in support of the Department of Defense’s ongoing modernization efforts,” said Pat Williams, chief programs officer at Oshkosh Defense.

“The unmatched performance of these platforms paired with the flexibility to integrate scalable weapon systems help meet the demands of an evolving battlefield.”

Oshkosh Defense leadership will be available to discuss the company’s entire portfolio of vehicles, mobility systems, and leading-edge technologies at AUSA GFS 2024 in booth #903.
