Warrior EAST 19 – Silent Tactical Energy Enhanced Dismount by Hendrick Motorsports

The Silent Tactical Energy Enhanced Dismount or STEED, by Hendrick Motorsports is an all terrain, electric power card. It has zero emissions and can carry up to 500 lbs over complex terrain. STEED will even climb stairs and can be used in water.

This is not a robot. It is simple to use. STEED is a two wheeled cart and not gyro stabilized, requiring at least one person to balance and operate the STEED. It features forward and reverse along with a thumb pedal to control speeds from 0-6.5 mph. The two wheels make it easy to maneuver into tight spaces.

STEED began as a USSOCOM mobility project but was temporarily shelved due to other, pressing requirements. It was picked up by Asymmetric Warfare Group for use by squads to transport Subterranean operations equipment. STEED has successfully completed a Combat Validation with SOFWERX.

STEED is also a participating technology in the 2019 Advanced Expeditionary Warrior Experiments.

Although it is envisioned for use in subterranean operations, it handles the transit across rough terrain quite well and would greatly enhance the capability of a squad to move bulky equipment such as weapons along with bulk fuel, food, water, and ammunition as well as casualties.

    Great idea. I recommend making it towable as well as stand alone.

    I could also see elk quarters on that thing.

    A powered wheel barrow, just call it a PWB
