GLSV Awarded USMC SBIR for Lightweight Track Development

GLSV received a Marine Corps Phase-I SBIR to develop a lightweight track for land and water mobility by using innovative materials, design, and manufacturing processes. The Marine Corps’ Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV) uses the same track and suspension system as the Bradley infantry fighting vehicle, which provides a stable platform for both water and land mobility. A new lightweight track design will reduce fuel consumption, improve speed and acceleration, and maneuvering capabilities in both water and on land.
