Abstract
QUEST HAS RESEARCHED AND FILED FOR PATENTS IN THE-FIELD OF KNOCK DOWN SHELTERS. THE CONSTRUCTION CONCEPTS COVERED IN THIS APPLICATION MAKE POSSIBLE THE ASSEMBLY OF AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SEALED ENCLOSURE WITH MINIMAL FASTENERS AND TOOLS (ONLY AN ALLEN WRENCH). THE CONSTRUCTION IS BASED ON A TWO FOOT MODULE PERMITTING ANY BUILDING SIZE UP TO 8 FT. HIGH X 8 FT. WIDE X 20 FT. LONG. THE THEORY IS THIS ENTIRE UNIT INCLUDING ROOF AND FLOOR, CAN EASILY BE ASSEMBLED IN LESS THAN ONE HOUR BY TWO PEOPLE. FURTHERMORE, THE CONCEPT MAINTAINS LIGHTNESS IN WEIGHT BY USING HONEYCOMB LAMINATED PANELS, AND PACKAGED COMPLETELY FLAT WITHOUT WASTED AIR SPACE. THIS TECHNOLOGY OFFERS THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO EASILY TRANSPORT AND ASSEMBLE SHELTERS IN REMOTE LOCATIONS FOR TEMPORARY HABITATION, GENERAL MATERIAL STORAGE, OR EQUIPMENT PROTECTION. PHASE I OF THIS PROGRAM CONSISTS OF COMPLETING THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, AND CONSTRUCTING A FUNCTIONAL PROTOTYPE. PHASE II WOULD INVOLVE FIELD TESTS AND EXPANDING APPLICATION FOR POSSIBLE COMMERCIAL USE.
