Conduct a structural and frequency response analysis of a raised, stowable platform and ladder as part of the Shadow 200 TUAS ground shelter integration onto the Rheinmetal Military Vehicles 40M trucks used by the Australian Army. Assess the platform’s structural and dynamic performance against operation loads and requirements.
The analysis performed by Quartek showed the platform had sufficient strength and possessed fundamental frequencies of vibration suitable for the system to perform as required in its operational environment.
