0808_Sh2Vertigo’s rapid deploying tent systems with AirBeam™ technology are replacing the aluminum frame TEMPER tents used in Force Provider, the U.S. Army’s premier base camp. Force Provider’s Expeditionary Base Camp—including 10 Vertigo AirBeam TEMPERs—is the Army’s newest forward operating camp, capable of supporting 150 troops indefinitely. The lightweight, low volume, high-pressure AirBeam tent framework allows the entire Expeditionary Base Camp to be transported in a single C-17 and can be fully deployed by eight troops in less than four hours. Outdoor Venture Corp. is developing a general-purpose line of AirBeam supported tents that will complement the TEMPER AS tent system.
