Motion control development has been gaining momentum over the last decade. Lockheed Martin recently awarded Trust Automation with a new contract for an automatic vehicle system for the AN/TPQ-53 (Q-53) counterfire radar system. The truck will be capable leveling automatically, rapidly elevated into position and remote operated using a laptop. It will be interesting to see where this goes.
