The US Navy in collaboration with the Department of Energy have begun the final rounds of testing for an armored railcar designed to transport sensitive nuclear material. The Rail Escort Vehicle, REV, is set to start replacing older cabooses in 2024. The final testing is to be conducted at the Department of Transportation’s Transportation Technology Center in Pueblo, Colorado. A DOE fact sheet reports that the body expects to receive full delivery of the REV this month. The manufacturer of the REV is Vigor Works who is known for also producing special operations boats for the Navy. Details about the system remain limited but the DOE has stated the REV provides a comfortable living and working environment while also featuring a number of security and surveillance features for the safe delivery of what it will transport.
