The CAMELEON is an all wheel drive modular mission system vehicle designed and produced by the OVIK Group. Designed and developed in 2010, the original CAMELEON (the IV440) was based upon the IVECO Daily 4x4 chassis but incorporated a number of modifications designed by OVIK. Since then CAMELEON systems have been integrated onto a range of base platforms (UNIMOG / Renault etc) varying in gross vehcle weight (GVW) between 5.5 and 28 tonnes.
Available in left or right hand drive configuration.
The CAMELEON system incorporates a base vehicle (to customer preference - normally a 4x4 / 6x6 or 8x8) - a bespoke hydraulic hook-lift system and a range of specialist mission modules which can be interchanged rapidly, giving the vehicle a multi-functional utility. The OVIK Group integrates a bespoke hydraulic load changer system and generally ruggedises / adapts the base vehicle according to role, adding components such as roll suppressor, top hatch, light covers, winch and bull bars, lighting and (if required) weapon systems.
CAMELEON is, in may respects, the perfect solution for adding ultimate flexibility to defence vehicle fleets. Available on platforms ranging from 5.5 tonnes GVW all the way up to 40 tonnes there is very little a CAMELEON system can't provide in terms of modular capability in the defence role.
At the lighter end of the vehicle scale a CAMELEON system based upon, for example, an IVECO Daily 4x4, provides a cost-effective yet robust and highly mobile platform which can be transformed in seconds from a combat service support (CSS) role - such as a flatbed palletised load carrier - into a combat support (CS) vehicle - such as an ambulance or command and communcations centre - or indeed into a pure combat vehicle such as a long-range patrol vehicle or a fire support platform. The possibilities are endless. The logic is obvious.
CAMELEON MMS offers a wide range of standard and bespoke modules suitable for operations across the Civil, Commercial, NGO and Emergency Service sectors. Born of a defence pedigree where flexibility, robustness, simplicity and reliability are key; vehicle crews simply change modules to reconfigure the CAMELEON platform.
Role changing is a one person operation taking under two minutes to achieve a full capability reconfiguration. The CAMELEON IV440 utilises a lightweight, hydraulic load-changer system to enable rapid platform reconfiguration. From a personnel carrier to an ambulance to a tipper body with integrated excavator to a load carrier or even a specialist search dog unit with de-mountable kennel, the functions and possibilities are limitless.
