Throughout the 1980’s and 90’s, the United States military’s rising demands for Polaris off-road vehicles leads to Polaris being the first ATV OEM to produce militarized vehicles for SOCOM and United States Army. The extensive success of Polaris vehicles in theater leads to the official founding of Polaris Defense in 2005, as a way of the company to better serve the needs of the United States Government and armed forces. Through 2005-2008, Polaris Defense steadily develops a range of vehicles to serve the US and Allied Forces including the MVRS, MV700 and RZR-SW to meet the increasing demand for light off-road mobility platforms. In 2011-12, Polaris Defense launches the next generation of ATV and LT-ATV’s to meet the demanding needs of US and International Special Operations, expeditionary and light infantry Forces. Polaris Defense continues to work closely with US and Allied Forces, with Defense products operational in over 100 countries across seven continents.
Backed by the infrastructure and resources of recognized global leader in the off-road vehicle industry, Polaris Defense employs some of the best designers, engineers and manufactures to continue to provide breakthrough technology for military and government use. Polaris Defense is a quick and responsive vendor with an established International support system. Polaris Defense does not only make the vehicle; they directly support it, warrant it and guarantee it.
