ISO 1C 20’ Tactical Shelter


ISO 1C 20’ Tactical Shelter

The ISO 1C 20′ Tactical Shelter has its dimensions defined by the ISO 668 standard for a 20 ft class 1C container, and was developed for the installation of electronics and telecommunication equipment.

ISO 1C 20 can be easily adapted for the specific needs of each application, and it can be transported by a standard container carrier truck.

The shelter walls are made with Aluminum-Honeybomb sandwich panels, and both the structure and ISO corners are also made of Aluminum, providing a light and robust platform for multiple tactical applications.

General characteristics:Robustness, with high structural strength;
Optional EMI shielding;
Good thermal insulation, optimizing the HVAC system usage;
High weather resistance;
Typical occupancy: 6 people.
Construction:Walls, roof, and floor are made of vacuum-laminated Aluminum-Honeycomb-Aluminum sandwich panels. These panels present high structural resistance, corrosion resistance, acoustic isolation, thermal isolation, and low weight.

The shelter frame is made of extruded Aluminum profiles, and each vertex is fitted with an Aluminum ISO corner. The access door has 4 Aluminum hinges, 3-point roller locks, and silicone rubber along the perimeter, ensuring a perfect sealing for the shelter. For the EMI shielding option, a conductive gasket is also used.

Roof hatches, roof access folding step stairs, and skids can be installed as options.
Integration:The ISO 1C 20′ shelter can be supplied integrated for a wide range of applications such as: telecommunications, communications and control, communication detection, interception and jamming, intelligence, electronic warfare, interference, location (direction finder), mobile radar, UAV ground station, VOR/DME station, training/meeting room, medical support, situation management office, graphics and video production for special operations, topographic operations, ammunition transport, and others.

The ISO 1C 20′ shelter is designed and built according to the requirements and specifications of each application. The integration can include for example: External connection or equipment panels, generator group, isolated compartments for the generator and storage, HVAC system, CBRN filters, racks, benches, telescoping mast, support and cable entry/connectors for external antennas, etc
