The TerraMax autonomous truck is based on Oshkosh's Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) defense truck platform. Most recently, TerraMax competed in the 2007 Darpa Urban Challenge. The MTVR was designed for the US Marine Corps with a 70% off-road mission profile. TerraMax's unmanned ground vehicle kit does not interfere with the conventional operation of the vehicle. A robust sensor suite allows for 360-degree situational awareness around TerraMax. Elements of the autonomous navigation kit could be used to enhance driver awareness. The complete kit could be used in applications such as snow removal on airport runways. Dr. Tony Tether, DARPA director said, "The first autonomous vehicle to be fielded by the military most likely will resemble Oshkosh Truck's TerraMax entry because the military is already using the basic truck it's based on."
