Funded by the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the ULV (Ultra Light Vehicle) project was set up to design, develop and build three identical lightweight tactical research prototype vehicles emphasizing survivability for occupants and meeting four research objectives:
• Payload – 4,500 lbs
• Performance – at 14,000 lbs curb weight
• Protection – comparable to the currently fielded Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicles
• Price – $250,000 each in a hypothetical 5,000-unit production run.
