Modular Causeway System
The Modular Causeway System is the Army’s means for offloading war-fighting equipment when no port facility is available. The system is designed for rapid deployment in multiple configurations. Maximum flexibility, ease of operation and installation are key design parameters.
GS Global Resources (GSGR) incorporated electronically operated hydraulic power units (HPU) into the bow ramp landing units and crew shelter control room to provide electro-hydraulic power for individual barge control. A cart-mounted remote tether controller enables efficient connection of the causeway sections utilizing the HPU of the crew shelter. Our harsh environment control package ensures all weather, all temperature operating capabilities. GSGR assisted the US Navy from concept definition, prototype build, system validation, through production supply including extensive documentation.
