General Dynamics V-22-Deployable Truck

The Flyer Vehicle
The Flyer is an air-transportable, lightweight vehicle capable of internal or external transport on the V-22, CH-53, C-130 and C-5 aircraft. It is highly adaptable to severe, rugged and restrictive terrains and provides off-road, cross-country mobility. The vehicle can be quickly configured in the field to perform multiple missions such as light strike assault, rescue and evacuation, command and control and reconnaissance, either armored or unarmored. The Flyer is offered in partnership with Flyer Defense, LLC.

The Flyer has an integrated C4ISR package, provided by General Dynamics C4 Systems, that improves Size, Weight, Ergonomics, Efficiency, Power and reduces Cost (SWEEP-C). This approach eliminates stovepiped engineering where multiple, disparate systems are installed after vehicle delivery, resulting in a costly mismatch of electronics which affect vehicle safety, usability, maintenance, logistics and operator performance.  The Vehicle Service Oriented Framework (VSOF) is an open, license-free Service-oriented architecture (SOA), with a software development kit (SDK). It provides for rapid “plug-n-play” insertion of new capabilities and is hardware platform independent.
