Modular Protective System Multipurpose Guard Tower

A lightweight, rapidly-constructed guard tower system for expedient deployment in remote locations with protection against small arms and blast threats

Military Technology

Multipurpose Guard TowerWhen we send our men and women to war, we owe them equipment designed to keep them as safe as humanly possible and that enhances their ability to accomplish the mission. The Modular Protective System (MPS) Multipurpose Guard Tower satisfies these requirements with a lightweight, rapidly-constructed protection system that can be expediently deployed in remote locations and accommodate crew-served weapons systems. This unique, government patent-pending guard tower was developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer Research and Development Center (USACE-ERDC). Developed under the Deployable Force Protection Program, this effort enhances soldier protection on small contingency bases while also providing next generation designs to accommodate maneuvers against enemy attacks.

The MPS Multipurpose Guard Tower is capable of providing over watch for entry control point and perimeter protection. The system can be configured as an elevated guard tower, mounted on its Quadcon container, or positioned for ground-level fighting. Protection is provided by a multi-layered armor panel system that allows security demands to be tailored based on the threat level. Protection capabilities against small arms, indirect fire and blast threats for the system have been validated through laboratory and field demonstrations.
