NexGen’s expandable Tricon shelters provide additional space and capacity, while maintaining small footprints during storage and transportation. These shelters can be custom designed to meet unique customer requirements.
During deployment, the units can be extended to as much as three times the original capacity and floor space, making the system ideal for such applications as kitchens, laundries, latrines, shower facilities, or workshops. The Containerized Single Pallet Expeditionary Kitchen is suitable to prepare hot meals in remote locations, featuring two self-cooking ovens with a resin pan and griddle as well as a sanitation unit with sink, a table, and shelving.
Flat Pack Modular
NexGen is the leader in the modular flat-pack shelters. These shelters are made of lightweight, fire-resistant composite insulated panels which are packed in ISO containers for transportation to any location. The panels are interlocked together rapidly to build a shelter that can accommodate hundreds of people. If you need to maintain field housing, “man camps”, or temporary living spaces in remote places, our flat-pack modular shelters provide the greatest flexibility, mission capability, security, and safety.
NexGen developed the Composite Personnel Transport Module (CPTM) shelter for the US Navy’s LCAC and SSC amphibious vessels. The CPTM is a deployable, expandable modular shelter that can carry up to 180 people on a hovercraft deck. This rapid-assembly shelter is 42 ft. long, 21 ft. wide and 7 ft. high and comprised of lightweight, durable, and fire-resistant composite panels. Each panel is about 7 ft. x 7 ft. and weighs about 200 lbs. and can be handled by four persons. The shelter is rapidly assembled on the hovercraft deck by eight soldiers in four hours with simple tools.
Modular shipping containers make excellent platforms for use as shelters. They are easily modified to meet the environmental and safety requirements to accommodate operators. NexGen can install rigid insulating panels, heating / ventilation / air conditioning systems, lighting, power distribution systems, on board power generation, racks, cabinets, or workstations. They are available in multiple standard sizes and can be easily transported using standard intermodal material handling and shipping methods.
Composite shelters offer important advantages that may offer significant benefits in some applications. Composite shelters are inherently lower weight and offer improved thermal insulation and corrosion resistance than steel shipping container-based shelters or traditional aluminum skinned tactical shelters. These features result in longer life, lower operating costs, maintenance costs, and transportation costs, all of which reduce the overall life cycle cost of the shelter.
The Containerized Single Pallet Expeditionary Kitchen (CSPEK) is a fully equipped field kitchen which is contained in a three-side expandable Tricon shelter. It is suitable to prepare hot meals in remote locations, featuring two self-cooking ovens with a braising pan and griddle, as well as a sanitation unit with sink, a table, and shelving.
NexGen’s refrigerated containers provide a unique solution to the refrigeration requirements of a mobile and deployed force. These insulated modular systems effectively transport frozen, chilled, and general cargo by road, rail, air, or sea.
NexGen developed world’s first expandable refrigerated container under contract from the US Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC). The JSERCS consists of an expandable TRICON refrigerated container with a compact refrigeration unit and lightweight composite insulated panels which are hinged and stowed inside the container during transport.
When deployed, the panels are expanded to form 8’ x 8’ x 20’ refrigerated container. A removable insulated bulkhead with built-in thermostat, fan and heater allows multi-temperature capability with variable proportion of frozen and chilled cargo. The JSERCS has the same storage capacity of Three (3) TRICON refrigerated containers but consumes 66% less energy and requires 66% less space for transport and storage and offers about 50% lower weight.
