Multi-purpose Troop Transport Carrier System (MTTCS) developed by Teledyne Brown Engineering and SAIC, to address military requirements for safe transport and rapid deployment of troops and fortifications. The basic shelter accommodates up to 10 people and their associated gear while countering the ballistic threats of small-arms fire, up to and including 7.62 mm AP, and most fragmentation from Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast threats.
The modular armored shelter can be mounted on medium or heavy trucks or dismount to a fixed position, such as checkpoints access control points, medical facilities or forward command and control point. Each four foot armor module has a built-in roll cage with four point seat harness restraints. Each module mounts an escape hatch, hinged ballistic glass protected firing and view ports, and roof mounted gun ring for M2, M240, MK19 weapons. MTTCS structures weighing 4,400 up to 9,600 pounds are combined of edge ports, center modules to form various types of fortifications suitable for the specific mission. Each module can be sling loaded to the forward area. The MTTCS has been test proven by the Rapid Equipping Force (REF) at the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command, and has undergone combat operational evaluation under REF sponsorship in Iraq.
