     Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain and Germany as the lead nation have initiated a new project under the auspices of the EDA, European Defence Agency the aim of which is to investigate opportunities and challenges of lightweight constructions for Armoured Multi-Purpose Vehicles, the L-AMPV project.

     Governmental experts from participating Member States and ten industrial and research entities involved in the project execution (coordinator KMW, Airborne, Camattini Meccanica, CEIIA, IABG, IVECO, Scania Netherland, Tecnalia, TNO and UROVESA) convened for a kick off meeting held at the EDA on 16 December 2015.

     The L-AMPV project is addressing a problem identified by military users referring to Armoured Multi-Purpose Vehicles currently in-service being far too heavy; this reduces off-road mobility.
The overall objective of this R&T, Research and Technology project is firstly to investigate opportunities and challenges of lightweight constructions for Armoured Multi-Purpose Vehicles, including new construction techniques for the vehicle parts, in order to define a proposal for a technology demonstrator, which could be the basis for a follow-on project.
