Phoenix International Systems
: 09 August, 2010  (New Product)
Mission capabilities have been improved on the Prowler Light Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle with the inclusion of a new high power 24v DC power system
Phoenix International has announced the introduction of an 80 amp 24VDC auxiliary electrical system for its Prowler multi-mission Light Tactical All Terrain Vehicle. This capability is not available on or for any other vehicle in its class.

“This is a significant and unique contribution to Prowler’s role when used as a mobile communication and/or laser technology applications platform,” said Amos Deacon, CEO of Phoenix International. Deacon added that this particular product development delivers a new dimension of improvements and capability, all leading to a significant mission multiplier effect in Prowler’s military applications.

This on board COTS capability is the latest complement to the array of proven Prowler platform capabilities when employed as a mission critical component in ISR, SAR, Mobile Anti-Armor, Assault, Perimeter Patrol, Security and Logistic Support applications, Deacon commented.

The All Terrain Vehicle Corporation division of Phoenix International initially introduced the industry’s first “quad” ATV type vehicle with rack and pinion steering and automotive controls in 2002. This was the Prowler platform, purpose designed and built to provide a light but rugged, reliable, easily configurable and powerful, commercially available mobile resource that is operable in the harshest and most demanding of terrain, climate and environmental conditions.

The Prowler LTATV, known for its ability to perform in any terrain or climate with unmatched agility, features:

* powerful 750cc DFI SOHC 4 Valve V-Twin engine
* fully automatic dual range 2WD/4WD transmission
* low centre of gravity, tight turning radius and high ground clearance
* 1550lb payload/3000lb towing capacity

ATV Corporation is a division of Phoenix International Systems, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDOVSB) and an AS9100/ISO9001:2008 Certified Manufacturer. The Company has been supplying state of the art COTS and MCOTS products in support of military and commercial operations since 1993. The Prowler is available under GSA Contract NO. GS-03F-0056T.
