HDT Global Launches Expeditionary Collective Protection (XCP™) Shelter System
Posted: June 1, 2011
SOLON, Ohio – June 1, 2011 – HDT Global, a provider of highly-engineered mobile military and emergency response solutions, today announces the launch of its Expeditionary Collective Protection (XCP™) shelter system. Utilizing a fully integrated design, conceptualized and manufactured by HDT, the new XCP shelter system provides peace of mind and the protection needed in hazardous environments, regardless of mission objectives.
HDT’s XCP systems use the most advanced chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) filtration systems in the world. At the core of this modular and scalable complex are the field-proven, energy efficient shelters, filtration systems, environmental control units, heaters, and power generators that work in concert to ensure the safety of the assets inside.
Each new HDT XCP shelter system contains the following core collective protection functions integrated into every expeditionary system:
• Barrier Protection. The barrier protection provided by the HDT XCP system is a combination of the shelter’s outer shell and the inner liner. The HDT CBRN liner provides superior barrier protection against liquid and vapor contaminants. Liners are provided with integrated connectors so shelters can be structured in any configuration (end-to-end or side-to-side).
• Air Purification. The HDT FFA400 and M98 filter set are the vital components of the proprietary HDT air purification system. The FFA400 provides sufficient airflow to supply the toxic free area (TFA). These components have been tested and qualified for harsh expeditionary environments and are used throughout the world for protecting key personnel and assets.
• Access/Exit. Each shelter supports an attachable single person airlock. The airlock provides ingress and egress to the TFA without compromising its integrity. Stretcher airlocks are also available for mobile medical applications.
• Overpressure. The HDT FFA400 creates a positive pressure environment (relative to the outside atmosphere) in the CBRN liner, which establishes the TFA. This over pressurization feature creates positive pressure within the shelter to ensure the TFA is impervious to toxic materials.
Chosen as the system of choice for the U.S. Military and the Canadian Department of National Defense, HDT’s XCP solution exceeds military requirements to meet challenges in the field.
