The AVPTA Mission is to leverage resources to improve transition of technologies into both the commercial and military marketplace, and industrial research and development IRAD involving commercial automotive and defense ground vehicle manufacturers to transition technologies and increase precompetitive research and development. The following summaries document the work product of twenty-six 26 projects contained within the AVPTA portfolio. Project performers include Automotive Industry Original Equipment Manufacturers OEMs and Tier 1 2 Suppliers, Defense Industry OEMs and Suppliers, DOE National Laboratories, DOD Research Laboratories, Contract Research Organizations, Universities and Colleges, Small and Other Category Businesses. Some of the projects reported upon herein were among the seven 7 original projects that formed the Alliances foundation and enabled its rapid start-up. In many instances, DOE and DA mutually leveraged respective ongoing projects by infusing personnel, contributing resources, and providing mutual experienceexpertise. This quickly expanded the Alliance technical network and reach, and provided access to activities beyond those directly funded by the Alliance. An example is TARDEC SME engagement in the VTO Annual Merit Review AMR during which TARDEC personnel are exposed to the complete VTO project portfolio including participatingcontributing as review panel members. Joint participation in the AMR helps to formulate areas of mutual technical interest AOIs that contain the description, scope and deliverables for future new-start projects.
