Composite Rubber Track (CRT) is the most significant technological development since the invention of armoured tracked vehicles. Soucy technology is revolutionising the development of tracked vehicles by delivering multiple strategic benefits and optimising equipment performance.

CRT consists of a continuously cased rubber band structure, reinforced with a range of composite materials and steel cord longitudinally and laterally. It is supplied as a complete continuous track. CRT is generally driven by an internal drive sprocket in military applications. The track is assembled in a precise sequence, giving it the strength it requires.

Also incorporated within the CRT are carbon nanotubes, which are used for their exceptional strength and stiffness. They also have good thermal properties which allow for better heat dissipation, preventing hot spots or premature failure.

Militaries worldwide are increasing their Research and Development (R&D) into RAS. Within the next 10-15 years RAS could potentially be at Military Commanders behest and...
CRT has been fitted to Armoured Vehicles (AVs) since 1988 and is currently integrated on several different platforms such as M113, CV90 and BRONCO.
