The developing world often relies on low-water crossings on unpaved roads in place of bridges for vehicle river crossings and impoverished communities suffer disproportionately more from road shut-downs. This project defines a modular and deployable bridge solution to combat low-water crossing hazards in undeveloped road systems in year-round conditions using Systems Engineering and related methodologies to architect the solution.
