  6. 6. 2013 HTUF Annual Meeting Survey Results 100 90 Weighted Average Results 80 Excellent 70 Above Average 60 50 Average 40 30 Below Average 20 10 Poor 0 Agenda Location 1 Venue Ride & Drive
  7. 7. 2013 HTUF Annual Meeting Survey Results 16 Like Dislike Number of Responses 14 12 10 8 6 4 2 0 Ride & Drive as Central Event Shift from "Expo" to "Meeting" Dedicated Working Groups (Day 1)
  8. 8. Feedback Themes - Comments • Make National Meeting a 2 day event (not 3) • Hotel venue too expensive • Agenda can be improved… – New speakers, less repetition, WG = discussion • • • • Ride & Drive Focus & “Parade” were a big hit! Need to get more fleets to participate/engage Fine tune Technology Showcase timing/format Increase Military presence and interaction
  9. 9. 2014 HTUF Annual Meeting Argonne National Lab, Sep 23-24, 2014 Mark Your Calendars! 2-Day Event with WG’s and Ride & Drive
  10. 10. CTAG Stakeholders
  11. 11. Key CTAG Takeaways • Cross-Cutting Issues good fit for HTUF focus – More appropriate than picking HE Tech winners • Webinars (30-60 minutes) good update tool • Many Cross-Cutting issues & HE Technologies appear to have a common thread re: certification – Start/Stop implementation complicated by 2013 OBD – Retrofit, Start-Ups and Low Volume handicapped – Today’s certification process discourages innovation • Fleets can be key asset in lobbying for change
  12. 12. Cross-Cutting Issues • Nationwide Voucher Incentive Expansion – Webinar scheduled for Dec 19 (3:00 PM EST) • HD Hybrid OBD Resolution – Follow-up meeting with ARB staff held on Oct 30 – Alt Fuel OBD Extension <4,500/yr; Hybrid next… • Fleet Deployment Best Practices – Forming WG – Goals, Deliverables, Timing TBD • Reduced Battery Life Cycle Costs – Continued dialogue b/n Fleets and Suppliers
  13. 13. Top Technologies • Combined Alt Fuel + Hybrid – E.g., Near Zero Emission  CNG/LNG + HEV • • • • • Hybrid Electric PHEV (Range Extended EV) Electrification of Accessories Export Power Start/Stop
  14. 14. Military Truck Action Group (MTAG) Steven Sokolsky HTUF Webinar December 11, 2013
  15. 15. MTAG Stakeholders
  16. 16. Initial Action Group Priorities • Match commercial technology development efforts to military platforms through roadmaps • Compare commercial lifecycle cost analysis practices to military’s • Identify & establish mission profiles to help industry more accurately test • Align vehicle automation activities • Engage key military stakeholders
  17. 17. Technology Roadmapping • With new emphasis on sustainment, how will military integrate new more efficient technologies? • Which platforms are ripe for upgrade? • What can military incorporate from ongoing tech development programs such as DOE SuperTruck, I-710 or CalHEAT?
  18. 18. First Roadmap Activities • Build advanced tech matrix by military platform • Analyze M915 longhaul tractor, analyze commercial similarities, recomme nd best opportunities
  19. 19. Lifecycle Cost Analysis • Lifecycle cost is a big issue for both industry & military • Industry: Military has an inconsistent vision of where technology is going & what is the value • Military: “Performance is the cake, lifecycle cost is the icing”
  20. 20. • • • • TARDEC 30-Year Strategic Plan Element: Reduce Lifecycle Costs of Ground Systems Improve data utilization Enhance skill sets, especially in “reliability” Seek opportunities to reduce O&S costs Exceed system performance objectives Key Outcomes • Collect lifecycle cost drivers for each ground system • Analyze cost driver data to help identify projects • Develop “-ity” metrics for Science & Technology efforts and demonstrate through project execution
  21. 21. Working Group Recommendations on LCC • Facilitate briefings for military planners – connect them with commercial OEMs, suppliers & fleets on LCC practices • Tie mission profile knowledge (peacetime vs. wartime) to LCC practices • Add a business roadmap to the technology roadmap
  22. 22. Call to Action • Commercial industry participation needed: educate military on LCC practices • Provide us information on commercial LCC practices – join us in sessions with military stakeholders Contact: Steve Sokolsky (510) 307-8772
