Secure Testing and Expert Engineering Support For Next-Generation Military Vehicles

Date: Issue 60 - May 2015

The challenge of engineering class-leading military vehicles has never been greater than it is today. Defence forces require vehicles to be capable in an increasing range of roles across multiple hostile theatres of operation from peacekeeping assignments and conventional force projection to asymmetric warfare and counter insurgency defence. The next generation of military vehicles must therefore reach ever-higher standards of robustness and mission flexibility, crew protection, fuel economy, in-service maintainability and agility, while also delivering value for money. 

Located in the heart of the UK, Millbrook is one of the world’s leading independent military vehicle engineering development and test facilities. “Millbrook is at the forefront of military capability and reliability testing, working with defence clients including a 15-year relationship with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD),” explains the company’s head of military strategies, Julian Bryan. “We are the home of the Battlefield Mission, the UK MOD wheeled vehicle approval benchmark, and in partnership we have developed a set of test parameters that push any vehicle to its in-service requirements and beyond.”
