Short Gap Crossing System
The Short Gap Crossing System (SGCS) is a launching system which enables vehicles to rapidly lay and recover pipe fascines and track way from under armour.
The SGCS enables a vehicle to launch assets to cross wet and dry gaps rapidly without the need for bridging.
The SGCS comprises a launch platform that carries the fascines, a lift beam that raises the launch platform to the launch position, fascine lashing equipment that securely holds the fascines in position and a fascine release mechanism.
The SGCS can be fitted using a common interface kit which allows the task equipment to be quickly interchanged and jettisoned increasing operational capability of the host vehicle.
