The shelter is designed in accordance to military specification MIL-S-44408 and meets ASTM-PS-138 andASTM-E-2377 performance specifications. This shelter platform serves as the US Military's most widely used light weight multipurpose shelter (LMS) and can also be mounted on utility variants of the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). The shelter is constructed of light weight aluminum bonded panels with Nomex honeycomb core or closed cell rigid foam core.
