Hardened Alternative Trailer System

  • The Hardened Alternative Trailer System (HATS) was developed through collaborative efforts between the Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Geotechnical and Structural Laboratory and Department of State, Bureau of Diplomatic Security, Physical Security Division, Research and Development Branch.


    International Standardization Organization (ISO) freight containers and other pre-fabricated units are commonly used to house personnel where temporary and rapidly deployable shelters are required. HATS, and a method of manufacturing the system, were devised for the protection of personnel and high-value assets when located in areas subject to threats of ballistics, fragmentation, blast, and forced entry. The system can be economically produced and delivered to a field location where needed without requiring assembly capabilities. Field applications of the containers may include data storage, personnel housing, medical units, and command/communications centers.
