Business - Bridge Systems
General Dynamics European Land Systems-Germany GmbH (GDELS-Germany), formerly known as EWK (Eisenwerke Kaiserslautern GmbH), has been one of the worldwide leading companies in mobile military bridge equipment for almost 60 years.
The company's leading position has always been determined by floating and dry-gap bridge systems. These systems were not only designed to meet the technical and operational requirements of its users, but were also ahead of their time.
GDELS provides a wide range of mobile military bridge systems for all forces. M3 Amphibious Bridge/Rafting System and IRB Improved Ribbon Bridge represent today's most modern and fastest water crossing systems for heavy forces. REBS Rapidly Emplaced Bridge System and the modular bridge system MTB Medium Trackway Bridge are the systems of choice for medium mechanized and air-transportable troops. Light infantry and airborne units rely on the IAB Infantry Assault Bridge to cross wet and dry gaps.
Developed and improved in close cooperation with the users, bridges of GDELS-Germany have proven their reliability and superior performance in various disaster relief operations, exercises and combat missions. GDELS-Germany also supplies integrated logistics support worldwide.
Bridge systems of GDELS-Germany are currently in use in more than 20 countries worldwide.
