The LQ-4 engine has been a popular candidate for the LRT in the US for a while now.
Now the company is looking to extend the engine’s lifespan.
The LRT project, known as the Advanced Light Transport Vehicle (ALTV), is aiming to bring a 100% efficient, low-cost, light-weight, fuel-efficient, and cost-effective light-truck, according to a press release from Lockheed Martin.
The ALTV will be able to go from zero to 60mph in less than 3 seconds.
The company is seeking funding through its Ultralights program, which was founded by LQ’s former CEO, Mike O’Keefe, who is now CEO of Ultralites.
O’Keefe says Ultralisks design has become the “most successful” in the aerospace industry, and Ultralays “engineers and engineers” are using it to solve some of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.
Ultralooks team has already received funding from NASA to develop the engine.
UltraLQ is looking for engineers, who will be responsible for designing and testing the vehicle.
The team will also be working with other companies to provide a range of aerospace and engineering support services, according the release.
The Ultralife team will design the vehicle to be able operate at a speed of around 120mph, with a top speed of 125mph, and be able go 100 miles per hour.
This will allow the vehicle and its crew to work more efficiently.
The vehicle will also have an “acceleration range of up to 300 miles per minute,” according to the press release.
Ultralife is seeking to raise $10 million in private capital to build the vehicle, and has been working with several aerospace firms to provide funding.
The company will also need to secure government funding, the release stated.
