The Storm SRTV ensures mission range, provides multi-role configurations and can be transported internally by M/HC-139P/N/J, C-130/C-130J, KC-130J and C-17 fixed-wing aircraft, as well as the CH-47 and CH-53 helicopters.

HDT Global (HDT) has announced that the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) has awarded the company's Expeditionary Systems Group the Guardian Angel Air-Deployable Rescue Vehicle (GAARV) contract to produce the HDT Storm Search and Rescue Tactical Vehicles (SRTV).

The HDT Storm is an ultra-lightweight, air-deployable tactical vehicle that offers Guardian Angel rescue teams the necessary equipment to search for and recover personnel and equipment in austere geographic locations. The unique vehicle platform provides unparalleled speed, payload, range and durability.

"We are thrilled to support the Guardian Angel organization through GAARV. The HDT Storm expands our product offerings consistent with our mission at HDT Global to provide innovative solutions for the U.S. Military and Allied Forces," said Jason Chamberlain, President and CEO, HDT Global.

"The HDT Storm gives the Guardian Angel Teams the capability to perform their mission, particularly when facing terrain impassable using other vehicles," added Robin Stefanovich, Business Development for Vehicles and Robotics, HDT Expeditionary Systems Group.

"Although extremely lightweight, this vehicle has the necessary power and performance to deliver personnel and equipment to their desired destination, away from an area of high threat to a defendable location."

Developed through expertise founded in off-road racing and years of real-life customer-centric engineering, the HDT Storm is a fielded solution ready for full-rate production.

The Storm SRTV ensures mission range, provides multi-role configurations and can be transported internally by M/HC-139P/N/J, C-130/C-130J, KC-130J and C-17 fixed-wing aircraft, as well as the CH-47 and CH-53 helicopters.

To further enhance mission capability, the vehicle can drive on and drive off these aircraft without shoring and can be deployed through low velocity aerial delivery or Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS) methods.
