SOLON, Ohio – June 19, 2012 – HDT Global, provider of highly-engineered mobile military technology and emergency response solutions, today announced the launch of its new extremely lightweight, cost effective, shelter line, Base-Xpress.

As a leader in expeditionary shelter systems, HDT Global expands its shelter offering to include this rapidly deploying, ultra-light weight shelter. Ideal for humanitarian relief operations, mobile medical facilities, emergency response operations, and commercial applications, HDT’s Base-Xpress provides the same quality that Base-X® users have relied on for more than three decades.

“HDT Global is committed to continuing to develop technology and solutions to help the military and emergency personnel excel at their jobs. We are excited to add the Base-Xpress shelter to our portfolio of expeditionary systems,” said Jeremy Alford, Product Line Leader for Expeditionary Shelters and Accessories.

Able to be deployed in under two minutes by two personnel, the Base-Xpress shelter is built to withstand extreme environmental conditions and is currently available in two models with usable, clear workspace – the 402 (180 square feet) and 403 (270 square feet). As with all HDT Base-X shelters, the Base-Xpress shelters may be connected at the doors to provide scalable complexes that meet varying mission requirements. HDT delivers turn-key solutions by offering a full line of complementary shelter accessories such as power generation, environmental control, C2 equipment, medical solutions and energy efficiency systems.
