Hybrid Electric Drive (HED) provides the potential to improve military vehicle capabilities beyond the well understood fuel economy benefits. Additional HED benefits for military operations can be realized in the areas of mobility, survivability, lethality, power generation and maintainability. General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) continues to demonstrate significant advantages that HED can offer to military vehicle platforms. This presentation will focus on the advanced military capabilities provided by HED utilizing in-hub wheel motors and include a summary of GDLS demonstrator vehicles with integrated HED.
