Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to develop a building specification for a portable modular component building system for the Armed Services. The system would be capable of meeting the needs of the military by affording a unique flexibility in responding to varied mission requirements. Such a system would provide a readily available shelter system capable of adapting to a variety of climate extremes, while providing a standardized living environment capable of short or long term deployments. The diversity of mission types demands the Armed Services to be responsive and highly mobile. A sheltering system capable of meeting the Services needs would increase both their effectiveness and efficiency by providing the occupants with an optimum high quality living environment whereby contributing to the missions overall success.
