GS Engineering selected for US Army experiment
HOUGHTON — GS Engineering has been selected by the U.S. Army to take part in the 2022 Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE 2022) for the Maneuver Battle Lab at U.S. Army Fort Benning in Georgia.
GS Engineering will bring its Ultralight Tactical Bridge for testing and evaluation under the Stand-Alone Assessment venue. An AEWE Team consisting of an infantry military occupational specialist (MOS) will put the technology through its paces in an operationally relevant context. AEWE is an annual campaign of experimentation placing prototype technologies that show potential for a significant capability benefit into the hands of soldiers to solve small unit tactical problems. It is the Army’s premier prototype technology and concept event focused on modernization of squads and small units.
This event is essential in shaping the future of the U.S. Army. It is designed to provide capability developers, the Science and Technology (S&T) community, and industry with a repeatable, credible, rigorous, and validated operational experiment for supporting both concept and materiel development.
Product Manager Rob Minger said that, “I am looking forward to getting the Ultralight Tactical Bridge in soldier’s hands to showcase its potential.” He went on to say that “It’s exciting to have soldier’s feedback and see how this solution fits into the army’s modernization plan.”
We are excited to be able to showcase this launching system and bridge module to close this capability gap and meet the needs of ultralight combat vehicle users. 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. The Ultralight Tactical Bridge will join GS Engineering’s military solutions which include Vehicle High Performance Kits for the HMWWV/GMV 1.0, Ultralight High-lift Jacks, Expandable Mobile Garages, and Sand Anchors.
