Head of New Horizons Studio and vice president, Hyundai Motor Group John Suh stated Bozeman is perfect for its latest research and development facility because of its multiple off-road trails and terrains that will help in testing UMVs. The usage of UMVs include natural resource management, disaster management, all-urban and rural logistics, construction, mining and space resource development. At NHS Bozeman, the team will initially focus on refining the development, testing and deployment of two UMV models.
