U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Lt. Col. Utsler recognized Polaris Defense today, during an event at AUSA, for the company’s rapid delivery and support of the Light Weight All-Terrain Vehicle (LTATV) contract. Contract execution included support of user evaluation and government testing, delivery of vehicles with tactical accessories to multiple USSOCOM locations, and providing training and sustainment parts to those locations.

Polaris CEO Scott Wine praised USSOCOM for its willingness to partner with private industry and accepted an American flag that has been flown on multiple missions over Afghanistan.
In an atmosphere of increasingly tight budgets and growing competition over fewer vehicle programs, Polaris Defense continues to focus on the warfighter.
“It’s our focus on the warfighter that continues to serve us well,” said Scott Wine, Chairman and CEO of Polaris. “We appreciate and respect all our customers – from the acquisition community to the maintenance personnel to the in-theater vehicle operators – and keep each of them in mind when designing, building, and fielding vehicles for the military. It is how we deliver value to our customers.”
Beyond the acquisition process and contract award, Polaris Defense continues to work with its Special Forces customer to quickly answer questions and support the vehicles in the field.
“Polaris really took it upon themselves to ensure the warfighters got the best vehicle, and that meant shouldering a lot of the cost burdens to get the MRZR, or the LTATV class, to where it is now,” said LtCol Utsler.
