PHASE I: This Phase shall consist of the following:
a) Demonstrate the feasibility of producing a demonstration of a low-cost, lightweight track pin and shoe system by focusing on new manufacturing methods that have been developed over the last 30 years to achieve the lower cost and weight targets which allows for the design envelope to be opened to new geometry (ID and OD) as well as new materials which previously would not be considered due to lost material from machining.
b) This system shall be interchangeable with the current system and meet the same performance criteria.
c) Identify, with Governmental concurrence, the most technical feasible solution from above M&S predictions.
