Nomenclature: S-749
Part Number (Unshielded): 206621
Part Number (Shielded): 206622

The S-749 shelter provides optimum performance under the most demanding field conditions. This lightweight, high strength, insulated, all-weather, mobile unit satisfies general purpose applications for housing communications and other transportable electronic equipment.
The S-749 shelter is of the same proven foam and beam construction as the widely used S-280 unit. Panel construction is a bonded sandwich consisting of a polyurethane foam core, aluminum skins and a framework of high strength all aluminum alloy extrusions. Structural strength is assured by orientation of the floor and roof beams in transverse directions. This "barrel hoop" construction provides the ability to withstand drop tests and high roof loads. Thick inner and outer floor skins (0.050 in.) lend added strength to withstand increased personnel or equipment traffic. Shelter corners are reinforced to accept side loads imposed by high wind velocities.
The S-749 is considered a mid-sized shelter within the family of transportable shelters. Although intermediate in size, the S-749 provides the maximum headroom available and accommodates personnel standing inside the unit.
When required, personnel gain a critical advantage - access to the transport vehicle from curbside. In fact, shelter length allows loading onto both standard 2-1/2-ton and 5-ton military trucks in the transverse orientation. The S-749 can be transported via military truck, helicopter, cargo aircraft such as the C-130, M720 and M832 mobilizers, and by rail and ship.
