Expeditionary mission readiness requires rapidly deployable and energy efficient camp solutions that can be procured and delivered in a timely manner.
Sourcing, acquiring and delivering these products is a huge undertaking for any Commander, not to mention when you consider external factors such as host nation support, environmental conditions, budgetary constraints, etc. ADS offers a single point source of acquisition for the most difficult of requirements and shorter lead times than both the traditional full and open contract procurement process and DLA’s stock system.
FORCE PROTECTION & PHYSICAL SECURITY
For planners, engineers, and security forces, the selection of base camp physical security measures is driven by the threat, environment, and level of protection needed for fixed-facility solutions.
Rapidly deployable, transportable, and energy efficient shelter systems are the key to improved quality of life for the warfighter, and mission effectiveness.
Poor sanitation and improper waste disposal under wartime conditions greatly increase the disease vector potential of such common pests as filth flies and rodents. Even in mobile field situations these camp followers have historically amplified sanitation problems, often resulting in epidemics of diarrheal diseases that have caused many casualties.
POWER GENERATION, WATER PURIFICATION & DISTRIBUTION
Energy efficient utilities reduce base camp reliance on convoys, contractors, or host nations to transport fuel or water, improving mission readiness and enhancing camp and personnel security.
Power: For soldiers, harnessing and maintaining power is essential for operating effectively. Up to 60 percent of base camp generator power goes to environmental control, according to the U.S. Army, the Army Material Systems Analysis Activity, and Project Manager Expeditionary Energy and Sustainment Systems.
