WebCore Technologies proposes to develop an integrated, multifunctional floor system for composite shelters that will incorporate both structural and functional features. Using an integrated structural floor system will remove the need for the metal subfloor supports. WebCore anticipates that an integrated floor system with no weight penalty and perhaps a weight savings. This provides the potential for significant reductions to shelter cost and weight. An integrated shelter floor will provide a base fixture from which the rest of the shelter may be constructed.
