Pagination or Media Count:
This manual was prepared by the Tentage Organizational Equipment Branch of the Combat Service Support Division, Aero-Mechanical Engineering Directorate, U.S. Army Natick Research Development and Engineering Center. The manual describes standard and experimental tents designed to meet known or potential requirements. Included also are tents that are in the concept stage, commercially available shelters which show promise of military adoption and obsolete tents and shelters. The purpose of this manual is to familiarize all DOD elements with the nomenclature, characteristics, purpose, etc., of the different types of shelters that are presently available. It is thought that the basic technical data provided for each shelter will be not only useful reference material, but will also be of assistance to other agencies in determining and selecting a shelter to meet a particular need. Further, it will serve to avoid the expenditure of unnecessary engineering or developmental funds and prevent duplications of shelters among the services. It is intended that this manual will be updated on a regular basis and serve to keep all DOD elements abreast of the latest developments in tents.
