HPCMP digital models of the Army Next-Generation Combat Vehicle components


The US Army required a way to conduct multiple tests and analysis of tracked vehicle designs in various environmental conditions without incurring excessive costs and time delays in fielding physical prototypes. A virtual prototype surrogate was needed that could be easily modified and then fully tested in a digital environment many hundreds of times to collect critical data in refining the final vehicle design elements prior to initiating physical prototype construction, thereby saving initial manufacturing costs and time.


HPCMP DSRC resources and CREATE-GV software enables design, predictive analysis and evaluation of next-generation combat vehicle (NGCV) concepts. HPCMP enabled TARDEC to model blast and structural durability of various prototype concept designs.




HPCMP CREATE™-GV software used to provide virtual prototype to collect critical data used in final vehicle design by conducting multiple tests and analysis in a timely and cost-effective manner.
