The U.S. Army is partnering with industry and academia on a multi-phased initiative to support and investigate the development and certification of new rubber compounds for the track pads of various tactical ground vehicles. New rubber formulations with higher load capacities and better wear characteristics will ultimately improve readiness and reliability. Phase II will focus on completing specific component pre-qualification processes.
