DARPA Issues Experimental Crowd-Derived Combat-Support Vehicle (XC2V) Design Challenge

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) seeks to engage the crowd for its latest challenge. The Experimental Crowd-derived Combat-support Vehicle (XC2V) Design Challenge, facilitated by Local Motors, Inc., asks individuals to conceptualize a vehicle body design for two different missions — Combat Reconnaissance and Combat Delivery & Evacuation.  
 
This is an opportunity for servicemembers, race and auto enthusiasts, and those with an interest and talent in engineering, materials, industrial design, etc., to support the warfighter by contributing to the future of military vehicle manufacturing, win up to $10,000, and see their design become a reality in the form of a fully functioning concept vehicle.
 
This competition provides experts, novices and the curious the opportunity to provide input to the final design of the vehicle. Whether you provide a design or just vote on the best submission, you can contribute.  
 
Final submissions are due March 3, 2011.
 
Visit the XC2V challenge webpage for complete challenge details and to register.
