The Tent, Extendable Modular Personnel (TEMPER) , a modular, soft-walled, aluminum framed supported tent made of vinyl coated polyester duck cloth that is fire, mildew and water resistant, is designed to grow exponentially and set up in multiple configurations.

The most common TEMPER tent configuration is the 32' x 20' billeting version. TEMPER tents are also used for many other functions, including field feeding, latrines, administrative offices, shops, kitchens, shower/shave units and medical facilities.

The TEMPER tent can be extended in length in 8 ft. increments and can be erected in 40 minutes by 5 soldiers (Type IV). The floor area is 640 sq. ft. (Type IV, Personnel -- 4 sections).

Designed to withstand various weather conditions, including desert, tropical and temperate climates, the TEMPER tents' outer cloth colors (camo green or desert tan) are designed to camouflage the TEMPER tent against the intended terrain and are visual and electronic suppressive with a blackout coating for protection from night optic vision gear.

An optional wind resistant fly is also available for the reduction of heat load.

The TEMPER tent has many major components. The major fabric components include the window section, end section, door section and fly. The fly covers the roof of the tent and provides supporting insulation. Utility support for these tents includes electrical service for lighting and convenience outlets and provisions for heating and cooling.
