The ERDC-developed Lightweight Modular Causeway System (LMCS), a floating bridge that incorporates flotation bladders with an overlain structural deck, has found a new use. Traditionally used as a path that extends from ship to shore or as a wet gap crossing, recent exercises in Malaysia focused on turning the LMCS into a towable, floating platform.
