"The cab is designed to have seven egress points facilitated by quick-release and removable components, stowage space for personnel and mission-specific items, and 360-degree situational awareness through front- and rear-mounted ultra-wide-angle thermal imagers," TARDEC engineer Vladimir Gendlin said in a statement.
