Silent Tactical Energy Enhanced Dismount (STEED) significantly enhances human performance during dismounted operations. Maximizing small unit dominance through lethal payload transport, powering squad electronics, extending self-sustained mission duration, and more rapid 1:1 personnel recovery.
STEED delivers an innovative solution to existing capability gaps identified by the Army, Marine Corps, and Special Operations Command. Further highlighted by the latest doctrine for dismounted movement and maneuver under load in the most demanding conditions, including subterranean and dense urban environments.
POWERFUL & VERSATILE
STEED powers through difficult terrain; over rocks, zero radius turns, through wetlands, submerged in water, even climbing stairwells. Versatile load deck and low center of gravity allow for a wide variety of payloads, affording leaders more options in mission planning for decisive action.
LIGHTENS THE LOAD
STEED reduces injury and improves endurance by lightening the load. Field evaluations demonstrate marked reductions in heart rate and energy expenditure with use of STEED. Data comparisons show operators can move 4x more payload, with less stress and fatigue versus man-pack carriage.
SMALL UNIT POWER
STEED exports small unit power exceeding 72-hour mission requirements, and uses common squad power manager interfaces. This combat validated technology enables self-sustained squad mission duration without over-burdening troop loads, constraining corridors of movement, or compromising the use of enhanced electronic capabilities.
CLOSE COMBAT LETHALITY
STEED applies Unconventional Mobility to increase warfighter load capacity, improve human performance, and enhance close combat lethality. A versatile machine built exceptionally well.
