Geotest Shows FLYER at AUTOTESTCON 2003AUTOTESTCON 2003 - ANAHEIM, Calif. (September 20, 2003) - Geotest-Marvin Test Systems, Inc., a global supplier of electronic test equipment for aerospace, semiconductor, telecom, medical, industrial and military applications, announced that they will be showing a FLYER rugged military vehicle in their booth at AUTOTESTCON 2003.
The FLYER, manufactured by FLYER Defense, LLC, a division of The Marvin Group in Inglewood, Calif., combines high mobility with packaging design, allowing for easy transport by or within select military aircraft (such as the CH-53E and CH-47D heavy lift helicopters, or the KC-130 tactical tanker/transport, respectively). FLYER also offers the FLYER ITV, capable of being transported in the MV-22 Tilt Rotor aircraft. The vehicle offers integration of two weapons (primary and secondary), portability, energy efficiency, and tactical benefits such as agility and stability. Built on a tubular space frame, the FLYER is light (75 mph, top speed), rugged, features 14-18" ground clearance, and meets the highest military requirements (MIL-STD 1275A, MIL-STD 461C).
Designed to replace the U.S. Marine Corp's aging fast attack vehicles that are reaching their anticipated end-of-life, the FLYER performs long range reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting acquisition missions with ease. Its capabilities and features make the FLYER an ideal vehicle for armed forces in rugged terrain.
Geotest-Marvin Test Systems, also a division of The Marvin Group, will showcase a FLYER, furnished with a missile launcher and two Hellfire missiles, in their booth space (#1101) at AUTOTESTCON.
"We believe that ATC audiences will be impressed by FLYER's capabilities," says Geotest president, Loofie Gutterman. "The vehicle, currently under extensive field testing by the U.S. military, is a strong example of the types of high quality efforts that each division of The Marvin Group is committed to providing in support of various programs within the military, aeronautic and aerospace sectors."
