As part of its “Small Business Innovative Research” program, the US Army reached out to private industry to develop design concepts for “Rapidly Deployable Structures for Austere Environments.” Due to the Army’s need for rapid response and deployment to some of the harshest environments on the planet, a new simple, tough, more energy efficient shelter system is required. The RDM was selected for development as part of a competitive process involving more than forty other companies. Described as “unique” and “incredibly flexible” by Army engineers associated with the program, the RDM’s design will be tested for strength, ease of use and energy efficiency based on conditions from the hottest AND coldest regions on earth.
