DRASH shelters provide personnel with mobile command and control centers, field hospitals and other field facilities that can be set up quickly and easily.

The DRASH design is comprised of a frame with two pre-attached covers and a ground cover. This means that setting up a DRASH shelter does not require special tools or dealing with loose parts. Its easy-to-use strut and hub configuration allows it to be set up within minutes of arriving at a location.

In this shelter design, pairs of struts connect to the framework at points called hubs. These hubs allow the shelter to be pushed up and out with no locking devices for quick set up or take down.

Additionally, larger shelters, such as DRASH J Series Shelters, come complete with a low-pressure air blower and bladder to assist in setting up the system.
