HGMS is a modular roadway system used for the rapid deployment and recovery of vehicles and people.
- MILITARY LOAD CLASSIFICATION (MLC) 70
- RAPID DEPLOYMENT
- 95% RECYCLABLE
FAUN HEAVY GROUND MOBILITY SYSTEM kit comprises of four key elements:
TRACKWAY – Aluminium panels that form the roadway
TRACKRACK – Rapid launch and recovery system for the roadway
CHASSIS – Flexibility in choice; can be adapted to any 8x8 chassis
SPOOLRACK – Carries additional lengths of roadway that can be transferred to the TRACKRACK for deployment
SPOOLRACK TRAILER – Transports each SPOOLRACK to enable SPOOL TO SPOOL transfer
HGMS is a military specification system that facilitates the launch and recovery of a temporary roadway. A standard HGMS provides one 50m length as standard, with the option of further 50m lengths to be carried by trailer.
HGMS is suitable for very heavy tracked and wheeled vehicles, including tanks and bridge transporters.
HGMS provides access for these vehicles into areas where there are no roads, or roads have been damaged. HGMS enables boggy or marshy terrain to become accessible to large, heavy vehicles.
HGMS can be deployed very quickly and efficiently. A trained two-man team can deploy 50m of roadway in less than 10 minutes over the toughest of terrain. The aluminium TRACKWAY will withstand repeated loads of up to 70 tonnes (rated to MLC 70).
HGMS features a unique 'spool to spool' transfer system that allows multiple 50m lengths of roadway to be laid quickly and easily. HGMS can be easily mounted to chassis with a PLS/DROPS hook lift system.
HGMS is best suited to adverse terrain conditions, including snow, marsh, mud and sand in a variety of climates. HGMS also provides rapid access to bridgeheads. HGMS is in use worldwide in a variety of military engineering applications, including humanitarian and disaster relief.
HGMS is also suitable for civilian applications, including oil and gas pipeline access, construction projects and temporary bridging.
