CRANE-102055
Communication fields that locate communication hubs and controllers in areas proximate significant events require communication gear. In such situations, communication gear has been transported in cases and then assembled on-site. When communication equipment is desired at a different location, the gear is disassembled, closed up in the cases, moved to the new location, unpacked, and then, reassembled.

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane), has developed and patented a communication vehicle that includes shelter and electronics. The Shelter includes ports on the exterior that permit data and power exchange between the vehicle and another similarly configured vehicle. The vehicle further includes dedicated wiring raceways that separate wiring for different uses.

Advantages:
- Locate communication hubs
- Multiple uses

Potential applications:
- Commercial communication
- Military communication
