Project Manager Joint Light Tactical Vehicles

MISSION:

Successfully complete Low Rate Initial Production, Full Rate Production and Fielding to ensure the Joint Warfighter is provided a Light Tactical Vehicle capable of operating across the full Spectrum of Military Operations for the next 30 years and beyond.

VISION:

Deliver a Light Tactical Vehicle that provides the optimal balance of Protection, Performance and Payload in order to afford the Joint Warfighters the greatest opportunity to accomplish their mission and return to fight another day.

FOCUS:

The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) Family of Vehicles (FoV) is a Joint Army and Marine Corps program that provides vehicles, along with companion trailers, capable of performing multiple mission roles while providing protected, sustained, and networked mobility for personnel and payloads across the full spectrum of military operations.


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program is an Army-led, joint modernization program designed to replace a portion of Army and Marine Corps light tactical wheeled vehicle fleets while closing an existing gap in payload, performance, and protection.

Light Tactical Vehicle line up


The JLTV family of vehicles consists of vehicles capable of performing multiple mission roles and designed to provide protected, sustained, networked mobility for personnel and payloads across the full range of military operations in two variants and four mission package configurations:
general purpose, heavy-guns carrier, close-combat-weapons carrier, and a utility vehicle.

This chart is broken down starting with a bubble that reads JLTV on the first line. The second line reads Variant, with two chart bubbles, labeled “2 seat” and “4 seat” these two bubbles are connected to the first bubble JLTV. 
The third line reads “Base Vehicle Platform” with three new chart bubbles. The first one reads UTL (an abbreviation for Utility) and is connected to the 2 seater bubble on the second line.  The second bubble, labeled GP (an abbreviation for General Purpose) and third bubble, labeled CCWC (an abbreviation for Close Combat Weapon Carrier) on the third line both connected to the 4 seat bubble on the second line

The fourth line of the chart reads “Mission Package Configuration” and has four chart bubbles on it. The first bubble reads UTL and connects to the UTl bubble on the third line. The second bubble, labeled GP (an abbreviation for General Purpose) and third bubble, labeled HGC (and abbreviation for Heavy Gun Carrier) connect back to the GP bubble on the third line. The fourth and last bubble on the chart is labeled CCWC and connects back to the CCWC on the third line.

The Army Operating Concept highlights the future operational environment as unknown, unknowable, and constantly changing. As Soldiers and Marines find themselves operating in increasingly diverse environments, they need lean, capable, and expeditionary systems. With enhanced protection and improved maneuverability, transportability, maintainability, and connectivity to 21st century battlefield networks, JLTVs will expand the options available to commanders.

The image shows an example of a tactical map to achieve objective A.
The text on the image reads: The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) will enhance light tactile mobility for combat arms, combat support, combat service support forces by providing protection, sustainment, networking, transportability and mobility.

The Army and Marine Corps will conduct a three-year low-rate initial production phase, leading to a full-rate production decision in fiscal 2018. The Marine Corps anticipates an initial operational capability in 2020 and the complete acquisition of 5,500 vehicles by 2022. The Army anticipates having its first unit equipped in 2019 with production to meet the Army's acquisition objective of 49,099 vehicles lasting until the mid-2030s.
