Current permanent shelters for forward base operations are heavy, bulky, labor intensive, and don t fully the needs of advanced weapon systems. A light weight state-of-the-art, self deployable, low maintenance, permanent shelter is desired. A fabric shelter, supported using AirBeams satisfies the requirements of protecting modern aircraft and p...

The ultimate objective is to produce a light weight, robust, rapidly deployable shelter that will perform reliably for the entire duration of the mission (however long that may be) and then can be simply and easily struck down (reversable)and stowed in a small cube until it is once again needed. FFF believes that with the new innovations and adv...

Federal Fabrics-Fibers (FFF) proposes a double walled shelter with a moisture permeable inner layer and a vented outer shell. The differential temperature between the inside and the outside will create a natural convection driven air flow between the two layers. This air flow will be used to carry away evaporating moisture from the inner shelter...
