JENOPTIK I Defense & Civil Systems
for electric vehicles
GTdrive® drive systems are designed to meet the specific requirements of ground vehicles working in difficult terrain. These systems use state-of-the-art drives (linear or rotary) from Jenoptik. If required, the systems can be fitted with a redundant emergency drive, consisting of a mechanical manual drive or an electric drive.
Our products are optimized for use in military stabilization systems. They are exceptionally resistant to arctic or tropical environmental influences. Moreover, they are extremely quiet, reliable and almost maintenance free in their operation, resulting in very low life cycle costs. The drives are also resistant to shocks and vibration, and have low backlash and friction.
An elevation drive stabilizes the weapons on armored vehicles. It moves the weapon about the trunnion axis as specified by the control electronics.
A azimuth drive stabilizes the turrets on armored vehicles. It moves and aligns the turret about the vehicle's vertical axis as specified by the control electronics.
