BAE Systems Modular Bridging System


BAE Systems are now competing to build the replacement to BR90 as part of the Army’s TYRO programme, which aims to provide a gap crossing capability for all tracked and wheeled vehicles until 2040. The new system includes both close support bridging, for narrower gaps in high threat environments, and general support bridging variants for wider gaps in lower threat environments. 26m close support bridge will be able to be deployed in under 2 minutes and without leaving the launch vehicle – vital for keeping the crew protected when laying bridges during intense fighting. Our general support bridge can be deployed to cross gaps of over 60m in less than half an hour by ten soldiers.New design and manufacturing techniques have been selected to stop corrosion in even the harshest environments, while our comprehensive performance testing means it will do exactly what it says on the tin.
