The Modular Extendable Rigid Wall Shelter (MERWS) is a modular shelter assembled from 40 individual paper honeycomb and aluminum skin panels. The shelter serves as an expansion kit for the Army Standard Expandable ISO shelter. The MERWS provides a large (1150 square foot) open workspace for command post, hospital, maintenance or other applications, when attached to 2 sided expandable ISO.
The shelter can be unpacked from the 20 foot ISO in which it is stored and transported and erected by four soldiers in less than four hours. The shelter includes lights, a circuit breaker panel, single personnel door, an ECU interface and leveling jacks. Individual panels can be removed and replaced with custom designed panels for specific applications.
