Heavy Ground Mobility System
Also in this section
The Heavy Ground Mobility System creates a modular, aluminium access route to improve the mobility of vehicles and aircraft. Best suited to adverse terrain conditions, including snow, marsh, mud, and sand, the system is suitable for heavy tracked and wheeled vehicles, including tanks, tank carriers, and bridge transporters.
The system comprises of a deployment and recovery mechanism, and M150 Trackway® which is the ideal solution for route clearance, bridging access and egress, parking areas, gap crossing and over the shore operations.
M150 Trackway® is an aluminium alloy panel which interlocks in multiples using a sliding joint and quick release locking bolts to create land and over the shore access on challenging ground conditions.
Once assembled to the required size, the M150 Trackway® can be rolled up for storage and transportation. Permitting wheeled or tracked vehicles to traverse soft ground without bogging down or causing severe damage to the ground surface, M150 Trackway® comprises of half panels at 5m (16ft 4in) intervals to allow for easy splitting and joining.
M150 TRACKWAY® CAPABILITY
Allows vehicle access across terrain with a low California Bearing Ratio;
Ensures continuous vehicle mobility in any environment;
Limits environmental damage caused by heavy vehicle traffic;
Can withstand repeated loads of up to 150T, depending on ground conditions;
Helps to ensure rapid mission completion;
Multipurpose solutions and can be used as part of Rapid Runway Repair.
