WARREN, Mich. – Feb. 24, 2003 – The United States Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command’s National Automotive Center (NAC) will exhibit the Army’s continuing role in developing fuel cells and a broad range of cutting-edge ground vehicle technologies at the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 2003 World Congress in Detroit’s Cobo Center, March 3-6, 2003.  The Army’s three display booths will demonstrate innovations that improve vehicle efficiency, safety and endurance while reducing design, manufacturing, and operation and maintenance costs.

General Paul J. Kern, Commanding General, U.S. Army Materiel Command, will deliver the keynote address at the SAE 2003 World Congress on Tuesday, March 4.  The General will address the future of military ground propulsion and give an update on the Army’s advancement of vehicle technologies through automotive industry partnerships.

Some of the technologies that NAC engineers are advancing will be on display at this year’s show.  They include military vehicle fuel cell technology, alternative fuels, hybrid hydraulic vehicle propulsion systems, motion capture/human modeling for simulation-based evaluation of ground vehicle design, 42-volt automotive electrical systems and an Omni-Directional Inspection System (ODIS) robot and trainer.
