CHARLOTTE, NC — Defense Venture Group (DVG) and its subsidiary Indigen Armor will host a debut of their Non-Standard Tactical Truck (NSTT) on Monday, February 22, 2010 in Charlotte, North Carolina, from 4-8 pm.

This “Invitation Only” event is the culmination of two years of internal research and development. The NSTT is a 4-door, 4-wheel drive, turbo diesel pickup truck. It offers scalable armor packages to meet multiple threat levels, is able to ford water up to 36″ deep, and can run on JP8 and other military diesel fuels. Internally transportable in an MH-47 helicopter, the NSTT can accommodate a variety of low-profile or overt tactical body styles.

An ideal, lightweight alternative to the heavy legacy defense vehicles in service today, the NSTT is perfect for special operations, military and quasi-military organizations that need a reliable and robust off-road capability in high threat environments.

Following the recent successful life cycle testing that measured the forces and their effects on the truck, Ron Griffin, Vice President of Engineering and Prototyping, stated, “We ran the NSTT through a rigorous combination of cross country, secondary roads, and primary highway profiles and were elated with the performance and reliability of the vehicle.” Chris Cathers, General Manager of Indigen Armor, added, “Through our mature design, engineering, and manufacturing experience, we have been able to combine the benefits of increased performance, payload and protection while meeting stringent helicopter transportable requirements. I have no doubt that this vehicle will receive the highest marks for mobility, reliability and maintainability within the military community.”

Invitees include industry leaders from aerospace and defense, government, academia and the private sector. As this event is by invitation only, interested parties who wish to attend should contact Defense Venture Group directly. Proof of U.S. Citizenship required. By request, the NSTT will be unveiled without body panels so that the armored safety cell, suspension, and internal mechanisms can be easily viewed.
