Advanced Vehicle Systems engineering group provides support for military and
commercial vehicle systems integration and design. Our focus is to ensure
fielded systems meet all required U.S. DoD military specifications and are
tailored in such a way as to fit the ultimate users ideals. Over the years we have
gained a reputation as a company that listens and acts. Or to put it in Marine
Corps speak: ‘AVS is a company that leans forward!’
Rather than generating a website that continually repeats capability statements,
we would like to show you a couple of things that we’ve done. Things that have
been fielded and our customers have promoted to their peers.
To go from an ‘off-the-shelf’ product to a fully integrated weapons platform as
that of the Marine Corps' Interim Fast Attack Vehicle (IFAV) takes time and a
great deal of innovation.
Internal and external helicopter transportation, deep water fording, equipment
stowage plans, weapons interfaces, night vision, communications, best crew
ergonomics, reliability, and safety. All have their place in the final system
Through analysis, evaluation, and consultation AVS designs systems that meet
specifications and that can be both fielded and supported. One such case is
illustrated below in which AVS re-designed a complete front bumper system and
the method of attachment to the vehicle frame. The AVS design achieved full
compliance with Mil-Std-209J for transportability and met all requirements for full
frontal vehicle protection, a method for quick winch attachment and removal,
rapid recovery points, helicopter lift rings, HMMWV recovery interfaces, safe
high-lift jacking points, and was of minimal weight.
