IDEF 2015: Millbrook Provides Testing and Egineering Support for Next-Gen Vehicles

Millbrook, one of the world's leading independent military vehicle engineering development and test facilities, showcases its extensive capabilities within the defence sector on stand 226B.

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). As the home of the Battlefield Mission - the UK MoD's wheeled vehicle approval benchmark - Millbrook has worked in partnership with the defence industry to develop a set of test parameters that push any vehicle to its in-service requirements and beyond. Operating with MoD accreditation for security 24 hours a day, seven days per week, Millbrook guarantees the highest levels of confidentiality. Customers include some of the world's leading defence vehicle specialists, who value the site's extremely wide range of secure testing environments.

Millbrook has developed a suite of vehicle and powertrain durability test schedules over more than 45 years' of test operations, covering a broad range of vehicle types and uses. As defence industry professionals, Millbrook engineers can provide the highest levels of objective expert advice, supporting military personnel in all areas of defence vehicle engineering and helping to deliver vehicles that meet or exceed expectation in front-line service.

Julian Brian, Head of Military Test and Development at Millbrook explains: "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."
