All Terrain Lifter, Army System (ATLAS)

The All Terrain Lifter, Army System (ATLAS) is a 10,000 lb. capacity, variable reach, rough terrain forklift. It has a top speed of 23 M.P.H. and cross country mobility equal to the 6,000 lb. capacity variable reach rough terrain forklift. The lift capacity of this machine is 4,000 lbs. at 21.5 feet; 6,000 lbs. at 13 feet; and 10,000 lbs. at 4 feet. It is intended to perform the same type of cargo handling operations as the present 10K capacity forklifts under SSN M488. The ATLAS replaces all NSNs currently listed under SSN M488 and will displace existing 10K rough terrain forklifts in newly fielded units that currently have the older machines.

The ATLAS is currently on contract from TRAK.

The new ATLAS II is a rough terrain forklift with a load capacity of 10,000 lb with a 48" load center with the primary mission to lift and load/unload pallets from ISO 20' containers. The target price for the production contract is not to exceed $135,000 per vehicle (in FY03 dollars). The intent is to improve the vehicles capabilities as much as possible while maintaining the current program's vehicle cost.

The All-Terrain Lifter, Army System (ATLAS II) is to receive and issue supplies, move stock to and from storage; load and unload ammunition, supplies, and equipment on unit vehicles for deployment; stuffing and unstuffing pallets from containers; transloading landing craft cargo between vehicles and aircraft; moving items into stock; and off-loading breakbulk cargo from vehicles and aircraft. The forklift truck (hereinafter called "truck" or "forklift") shall be a four-wheel drive, diesel-engine-driven, variable reach boom type truck (see ASME B56.6). The truck shall not be equipped with stabilizers or outriggers. The truck shall be rated at 6,000 pounds at 24-inch load center with the 6,000-pound capacity carriage mounted and shall be rated at 10,000 pounds at 48-inch load center with the 10,000-pound capacity carriage mounted.

The production contract will be a five-year, firm fixed price requirements type contract. The current program estimate includes $135M for approximately 1,000 vehicles. The production contract will require the contractor to deliver up to six vehicles in production configuration about seven months after the production contract award for the Production Verification Testing. The Government reserves the right to purchase the successful offeror's Demonstration Test vehicle to perform additional testing after the award of the production contract and prior to delivery of the production configuration vehicles.

This program is based on the belief that industry has existing commercial vehicles, or vehicles capable of being modified, that can meet the requirements of this program. The Demonstration Test (in conjunction with the written proposal and evaluation) is a means of mitigating the risk to the Government in order to select the ATLAS II that has the highest probability of meeting all requirements as well as distinguishing differences between offerors providing vehicles that range in performance due to achieving required and desired objectives outlined in the ORD. The Demonstration Test vehicle, commercial component manuals, and the Demonstration Test vehicle support will be at no cost to the Government. The production contract will also include contract provisions providing for the transfer of the data package and rights to the government in the event that the original manufacturer goes out of business or drops the parts or vehicles from production.
