What kind of electric motorcycle is equipped with special forces?
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency paid contract fees to Logos Technologies in 2014 to order a “silent” off-road motorcycle, which is planned to be equipped with such silent motorcycles in special forces.
In the 1986 issue of the Delta Special Forces, Norris defeated the terrorists with an off-road motorcycle capable of firing rockets. This off-road motorcycle seems to be Niubi now, calm Norris calmly press the button, the handlebar near the firing of two rockets destroyed several jeeps, broken glass from the motorcycle jump on a legitimate take-off aircraft
Now the US special forces finally have a similar movie Norris God used the motorcycle. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) paid a contract fee to Logos Technologies in April 2014 to order a “silent” off-road motorcycle, and DARPA plans to equip the silent forces in special forces.
At that time Logos representatives said the company will be within 12 months to make a prototype and test run, in the past we all think that this goal is too optimistic. However, on January 6 this year, DARPA paid Logos Technologies for the second tranche.
Logos revealed to the outside world the latest details of silent motorcycles, and revealed the motorcycle SilentHawk.
DARPA allocates more than $ 1 million for the second phase. Logos plans to allocate funds for the development of electric and off-road motorcycles in Norris movies, but no rocket launchers.
Also in the development of SilentHawk is an upgraded version of the RedShift MX off-road motorcycle. RedShift is an electric racing motorcycle developed by Atla Motors, California. SilentHawk used the RedShift MX chassis, equipped with Logos developed a special hybrid engine.
The company had a cross-country, mud and sand test of SilentHawk, and the company said DARPA was pleased with the test results, but did not reveal Norris’s dissatisfaction.
In 2013, the US Special Operations Command had used all-electric Zero MMX motorcycles, but the battery could only hold for two hours.
But SilentHawk’s hybrid engine has outperformed Zero MMX.
The hybrid engine can use gasoline, diesel and JP8 fuel. Although it is silent motorcycles, but the fuel engine is not a little sound did not, really silent is the electric engine. When the special forces close to the action area, you can switch to silent mode, this time began to use the battery-driven.
Fuel engine can also be removed, after the removal of SilentHawk has become a full electric motorcycle. SilentHawk’s generators, exhaust pipes, heat sinks and control elements are mounted on the same chassis and can be removed in 30 minutes. Remove the SilentHawk’s battery and run 80 kilometers each time.
