Military Transmission Specialist Attends DVD 2010

DVD - Defence Equipment And Support (DE&S)
: 23 June, 2010  (Company News)
Allison Transmission will be attending DVD 2010 this year with its range of automatic transmission equipment designed for use in military applications
Allison Transmission, a provider of commercial duty automatic transmissions and hybrid propulsion systems, invites DVD 2010 visitors to visit stand OR24 on June 23rd and 24th 2010 to learn how its prognostics software and driveline calibration features can help prolong vehicle life, while delivering reliable performance, regardless of task or theatre. Allison has a long heritage in the supply of rugged transmissions for combat, tactical and support missions in both wheeled and tracked vehicles for the armed services. Products favoured by the UK military range from the Allison 2000 Series for light armoured tactical vehicles to the 4000 Series for heavy equipment transporters. On display at DVD 2010 will be the Allison 2500SP as specified on Jackal, Coyote, RG-31 Nyala, Cougar vehicles along with. the 3000SP supplied for the Mastiff, Wolfhound and Ridgeback.

“Allison understands that NATO forces are looking for standardised production-ready components which can be used in military applications,” says Riccardo Sardelli, Allison Transmission’s UK area manager. “Allison therefore offers the SP Series of commercial duty fully automatic transmissions which have proven reliability, durability and the required flexibility to fit military requirements without the need for extensive modifications. We offer effective product support through a worldwide service network of over 1,550 distributor and dealer locations. Our Allison team works closely with original equipment manufacturers to deliver solutions for the unique challenges faced by today’s armed forces.”

Calibrated to the particular requirements of the vehicle, Allison Prognostics monitor operating parameters to determine and alert when a specific maintenance function is required. Fluid, filters and transmission health status can be monitored simply by consulting the shift selector display.

Eliminating the guesswork and hassle of scheduling routine vehicle maintenance as well as unnecessary oil and filters changes, Allison Prognostics save time and money while providing maximum protection for the transmission.

Through Allison Transmission’s experience working with defense customers, its experts have developed a wide library of ‘mission profiles’ – the best configurations by application – and a clear understanding of the factors which affect both vehicle performance and fuel consumption.

Allison fully automatic transmissions are relied upon by the armed services for their extended torque range, higher GVW capacity and advanced electronic controls to get the most performance out of the engine, by delivering more power to the wheels. Allison products are fully automatic powershifting transmissions, which provide faster acceleration, superior traction and greater manoeuvrability in all conditions. Advanced electronic controls automatically command the right shift at the right time to maximise vehicle performance yet maintain engine speed within its optimal range.

Allison automatics are arguably most impressive when it comes to startability on hills, grades or soft ground. Allison's torque converter ensures engine torque multiplication at vehicle launch and transmits it gradually to the wheels, which enables smooth and steady starts as well as unrivalled rocking ability. Also driveline wear and tear is reduced since the transmission's torque converter – with torsional damper – absorbs shock loads from both directions, ensuring that the driveshaft, differential, axles are protected.

In hilly terrain, the absence of rollback is another safety factor and the capability of operating at low speeds smoothly, without clutching and shifting gears, is much safer and less fatiguing for the driver and ground personnel. Because Allison transmissions are inherently easy to operate, drivers can concentrate on their mission, remain alert, and experience measurably lower stress.
