KXI For Government

The new standard in 4x4 transportation safety

Government Uses

KXI Active Suspension Control System (ASCS) was specifically designed to confidently tackle challenging terrain for government fleet activities. Tested in some of the world's harshest conditions, vehicles converted to KXI Suspension can access the most remote locations, safely transporting employees and equipment while possibly replacing the use of costly helicopters in some instances.

Government applications for the technology include:

  • Forest Fire First Response
  • Flood & Disaster First Response
  • Remote/Rural Medical Response
  • Arctic Environment Services
  • Homeland & Border Security
  • Park & Sensitive Ecosystem Patrol

Management of Center of Gravity & Center of Mass

Our patent pending suspension conversion offers unprecedented management of center of gravity and center of mass for the converted 4x4 vehicle. Our gyroscope-enabled automated technology offers two key advantages - terrain flotation and extreme side slope capability. KXI Suspension enables any level of driver who has taken our driver orientation & training more safety, control and comfort while traversing complex terrain and steep slopes.

    Flotation

    Also called 'nominal ground pressure', flotation is the measurement of the ability to stay above the terrain without sinking into it, where traction is the lowest and environmental disturbance is the highest. At less than 2psi, our 2018 Ford F-150 truck converted with KXI Suspension has greater flotation than a walking adult. This level of flotation not only equips the vehicle with the traction to reach some of the most remote locations on earth, but it also leaves virtually no disturbance of the ground, wildlife or plant life in its path.

    Check out our Commitment to Environment to see why KXI vehicle conversions are the optimal solution for transportation on fragile ecosystems.

    Flotation for environmental protection in fragile ecosystems

    Our trucks' ability to stay atop the terrain is produced using KXI's state-of-the-art low PSI tires, extremely lightweight parts, removal of all unnecessary materials and our patent pending suspension technology which auto-levels to maintain vehicle balance and center of gravity control in all circumstances, when used as directed.

    Extreme Slope Capabilities

    Vehicles of all types are rendered useless on slippery side slopes, even on slopes as small as a 5% gradient. Their inability to adjust for any variance in their center of gravity means that the tires on the low side of the slope could have >90% of the vehicle mass pushing on them, driving them into the terrain, potentially leading to slipping down the slope or in extreme cases, causing rollover.

    Vehicle converted to KXI's Active Suspension Control System maintain even weight distribution between all tires, even on aggressive side slopes, by balancing the suspension and tire pressure of each individual tire. With nearly a 2ft differential clearance, 20" of suspension travel and an agile 35ft turning radius provided by the 4-wheel steering, workers can now can safely access millions of miles of rugged terrain, previously only accessible via more expensive and dangerous means of helicopter or small single track vehicle.

    Built-in Safety Features

    Central Air Inflation

    In addition to adjusting tire pressure for optimal traction, the on-board central air inflation system provides a leak guard technology, where in the unlikely event of a puncture or leak to the triple sidewall protection tires, the tires will stay inflated in order to return home. Our tires are designed to deliver maximum safety and control at various tire air pressures, from low to highway speeds.

    Autostabilize Mode

    The suspension utilizes gyroscope-enabled technology that communicates with the central air system to maintain a balanced vehicle cabin and assist the driver in maintaining control of the vehicle at all times.
