DefenCell: Military Logistics

Sling It

Supplying forward operating base (FOB) fortifications can require a significant (and expensive) logistical commitment from air resources. Even a small FOB can easily require several containers of force protection equipment for perimeter security alone. Chinooks can lift up to 10 tons tandem, but are limited in the number of containers they can carry per trip.

DefenCell systems help mitigate this logistical burden by providing a lightweight alternative to other fortifications. DefenCell's compact design and lack of metal parts minimizes its logistical footprint, condensing up to five containers worth of barriers into one 9,000kgs container.

This compact footprint reduces the number of necessary flights minimizing risk in combat environments and reducing repetitive exposure. These logistical advantages are achieved without compromising the protection afforded to the FOB.
