Multi-configuration lightweight shelters for diverse military and mission-critical applications


Lichtenau/Baden, Germany – LS telcom’s subsidiary Colibrex has introduced a new customisable shelter solution for military purposes. The new ShelTec protective shelters are designed to host electronic warfare (EW) operation centres, command and control centres, mobile and stationary outpatient units, as well as maintenance and service entities.

Colibrex adapts the ShelTec Design containers to the requirements and applications of the customer. As opposed to corrugated, the ShelTec container walls are “sandwich” panels made of smooth and sutureless aluminium sheets with a middle layer of insulating foam. Number, size, and position of entry panels, windows and other openings are completely customisable. The interior can be fitted with any type of equipment and facilities. The ShelTec Design meets shielding requirements from 150 kHz to up to 6Ghz with an attenuation of up to 60dB.

The lightweight aluminium enables transportation of the units by several means; truck, plane and helicopter. The units can be equipped with an electrical lifting jack for autonomous lifting and loading and can be crane hoisted or fork lifted.

“With our ShelTec Design containers we are serving a niche market. The units are durable and withstand extreme weather conditions, indispensable for military deployment and other sensitive applications. The special appeal of the ShelTec Design containers lies in their mobility and adaptability. The units can be adapted for serving many different purposes. At the same time, we can produce very small quantities at competitive prices,” explains Luc HaeberlĂ©, Managing Director of Colibrex.
