Arctic transporter finds new home at Cold Regions Lab
HANOVER, N.H. (April 24, 2018)--A Small Unit Support Vehicle used by the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory to support polar research in the 1980's and 1990's became a historical display adjacent to CRREL's main entrance. Led by Terrence Winschel, Engineer Research and Development Center historian, and CRREL's Engineering Resources Branch, the vehicle display project is a joint effort that also involved CRREL's Directorate of Public Works. CRREL incorporated the SUSV into its winter logistical-operations fleet to help evaluate its shallow snow mobility model and low-speed drag plow designs, for which three patents were awarded. The SUSV was also used to support field operations for several CRREL environmental projects on U.S. military bases in Alaska.
