Erected in under 5 minutes, Utilis USA expeditionary military shelters benefit from an innovative system of deployment. The ease and speed with which our shelter systems deploy saves soldier time and simplifies training. The well thought out frame design and rope and pulley system provides a simple and easy to remember set-up procedure. No additional tools, ladders or power is required to erect the shelter. The rapidly deployable soft shelter incorporates a unique external folding-frame design and an internal liner system integrated with the outer fabric.

EXTERNAL FRAME DESIGN
The Utilis USA shelter system incorporates a unique external folding-frame design. The rugged aluminum alloy frame has a traditional A-frame shape, with strong durable components and interconnected pieces. The small number of parts minimizes vulnerabilities and maintenance requirements.
The outer fabric is a heavyweight protective PVC material that meets all performance requirements for MIL-PRF 44103 for strength, weather resistance and durability in any operating environment. Utilis USA shelters use Radio Frequency welding techniques in order to form a stronger, waterproof seal. The removable floor is made from a heavy weight material which is able to stand up to harsh conditions in the field and remains integral to the external fabric via a novel sandwiched Velcro design to reduce set-up time.
INTERNAL LINER (optional)
The internal liner stays integral to the external fabric of the shelter to greatly reduce the shelter set-up and “under canopy” time. The internal liner has integrated electrical outlets and air conditioning plenum pre-installed.
The Utilis USA shelter is packaged into three carry “bags” that make it easy to transport and very man-portable. Utilis shelters reduce the transportation requirements by as much as one-third when compared to the current standard systems.
All of the Utilis shelter systems have the capability to complex to one another and to other shelters currently in the military inventory. By connecting our tents, larger work areas or soldier accommodations can be created. Also, specific space distribution and privacy issues can be handled easily and quickly.
