Military Shelter Systems
Engineered to withstand the extreme environments of military operations around the world, military shelter systems from Alaska Structures provide a higher level of comfort, safety, and reliability. “Alaska Shelters” as they are commonly called are available from 8’ wide to 150’ wide, and to any length. Each military shelter system is designed to serve 10+ years in the field, 20+ years on the shelf, and support 100+ setup and strike cycles without failure. No other military shelter system comes close to the rugged durability or proven experience of Alaska Structures.
Turnkey Base Camps
Our turnkey base camps can be deployed with all the structures necessary to support military troop accommodations and operations. Base camps can include Alaska 16’ or 20’ wide Shelter Systems for billeting troops, the Alaska ECU™ for effective environmental control, shower/latrine facilities, laundry systems, storage containers, and power generation/distribution centers. These turnkey base camp systems allow for rapid deployment of a fully-operational military camp in rugged or undeveloped locations.
Most military camps will require maintenance facilities to protect vehicles and equipment, store supplies and resources, or support camp operations. Our 30-foot and 40-foot wide shelters are ideal for multipurpose use at mid-to-long-term encampments, while our larger buildings can be made up to 150-feet wide for larger facilities requirements. Alaska Aircraft Hangars are designed to store and allow easy access for airplanes and helicopters, and our TUAV Shelters are optimal command and control facilities for UAV military operations.
The design and engineering of Alaska Structures’ military shelter systems have been adapted specifically for remote military expeditions. The Alaska XP Shelter System™ utilizes a revolutionary design that is easily transported, and can be rapidly deployed in as little as 10 minutes. Advance ground troops to remote locations with shelter, power, and an environmental control unit using our Xterra™ Shelter System, or support high-altitude combat missions with the specially designed Alaska High Altitude Shelter Systems™.
Mobile Field Hospitals & Medical Facilities
All military installations, from permanent bases to short-term camps, require medical shelters and treatment facilities for combat health and support. Our medical facilities support all kinds of levels of care, from ward beds and pharmaceutical operations, to intensive care and negative pressure isolation centers. The Alaska Medical Shelter System offers rapid deployment of health support systems that meet three out of five echelon medical care levels. Our medical facilities provide the modular, scalable design that is necessary for mobile field hospitals, military shelters with negative pressure isolation systems for COVID-19, and more.
Tactical Operations Centers
With rapid setup and strike capabilities, Tactical Operations Centers by Alaska Structures can quickly be scaled to provide command and control (C2) or situational awareness functionalities for company, battalion, brigade, to division-sized task forces. 4-way and 6-way hubs allow military shelter systems to be complexed. Alaska Tactical Operations Centers can be equipped with a wide assortment of support systems: power generation and distribution, environmental control, lighting systems, as well as furniture packages to create facilities for effective command and control.
