DEFEA 2021: Elvo and Plasan display ATeMM All-Terrain electric Mission Module


A very interesting system displayed by the Israeli company Plasan and its Greek partner ELVO at DEFA 2021 is the ATeMM (All-Terrain electric Mission Module) rigidly connected to a Hyrax tactical vehicle, turning this 4x4 vehicle into a 6x6 with a high power supplier.

The ATeMM is a connected and synchronized controlled electrically powered platform, not a simple trailer, even if its top cover can carry a heavy payload. It can easily be connected to any pickup truck or tactical vehicle by a unique, patented « 3-point fast connection » that enables the vehicle and ATeMM to perform as a 6x6 synchronized vehicle, the electrically powered axle (200 hp electric motor) of the ATeMM being directional, which relieves the driver from having to master the usual difficulty of controlling the trajectory of its trailer when driving backward, for instance (no « jack-knife »); this makes the driving by an inexperienced driver easy.

Harvesting energy from the wheels, the ATeMM can provide onboard vehicle power on the move for external systems and equipment. It is built with a 37-200 kWh rechargeable battery pack. 20 kW of power is regenerated when the vehicle is on the move but solar panels can also recharge the battery. Three modes can be programmed: charge, eco or power.

The ATeMM increases the payload by 2,540 lbs, its operational flexibility and the traction of the 4x4 vehicle while maintaining its original maneuverability (synchronized driving, steering and braking). The electric motorization of the ATeMM enables the whole vehicle to drive silently.

The module can be adapted to a wide range of roles, from medical evacuation to armed platform, exceeding by far simple cargo transport.
