Modular Protective System Proves Effective for Remote Bases

By Sara Leach The MPS-OHC with segmented beams undergoes bare-charge testing at ERDC’s Big Black Test Site in Vicksburg in July. The test involved a total of five shots placed at different locations on the upper roof layer. The structure and the newly designed beam connection performed well on all tests.

A series of recent demonstrations conducted by the Geotechnical and Structure Laboratory in the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers validated the protective performance of an overhead cover structure, built with no equipment, using ERDC’s Modular Protective System (MPS). The MPS is a rapidly […]
