Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC)
ABSTRACT Special Operations Forces (SOF) military personnel requested access to information on the SHERP vehicles located on foreign national systems. The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center worked with our information technology support department to access Ukrainian source materials, as well as materials from U.S. and Canadian sources. A report on characteristics, features, and specifications of the SHERP, SHERP Pickup, and SHERP the Ark vehicle variants was compiled. This report includes information on the powertrains/drivetrains, pneumocirculating suspension systems, articulated steering systems, all-wheel control systems, and automated water-pumping systems. Information on the various logistical support accessories and equipment, such as the cargo trailer, boat-type sled, medical module, dwelling module, universal loading platform, personnel transportation unit, and tank unit, is also included. Information was provided to combatant commands and other units associated with SOF operations for potential acquisition review to support military, domestic, and humanitarian assistance/disaster relief operations.
