Bridging the gap

Traditional bridging and gap-defeat equipment may not be available to units operating ultralight combat vehicles due to the severe miss-match of size, weight, speed, and transportability between the typically large and slow bridging equipment and a small vehicle such as ISV or GMV. This places the burden of traversing obstacles on personnel embarked on the lightweight vehicle systems themselves.

GS Engineering has developed a launching system and bridge module to close this capability gap and meet the needs of ultralight combat vehicle users. Developed with the Polaris DAGOR as a host vehicle, this system is fully capable of providing a gap defeat capability which is a match to the vehicle in capacity, transportability, mobility, speed of deployment/retrieval, and ease of use.
