Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers two types of lightweight electrical equipment shelters designed for transport on both the M1037 and M1097 high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV) by rail, air, marine, and highway when mounted or dismounted from their vehicles. The shelters will be of the following types: Type I —shelters without tunnel(17-2-0035-1); and Type III —modified general-purpose shelters with tunnel (17-2-0035-3). Shelters shall undergo rigid verification procedures to inspect their conformance to requirements pertaining to physical performance, environmental performance, transportability performance, identification, toxicity, and flame resistance.
