Description: Special Report
Abstract: This report describes the operation of the CRREL prototype air-transportable shelter which was designed specifically for use in cold regions. The operating instructions cover moving the shelter on its own wheels or skis, loading it onto a truck or military transport aircraft, slinging it from a helicopter or preparing it for shipment as an ISO container. The report details how to site the shelter and expand it to about double its transport size. The report also covers operation of the utility systems, including the on-board alternator set, the primary and auxiliary heating systems, the water system, and various safety systems.
