The MKPOD1 -Survival Capsule, Escape Pod, Storm Shelter- was designed to save your life and the lives of those who rely on you. You can build it or have somebody else do it. Be prepared; Act now.MKPOD1 participated in the NASA sponsored Create the Future Design Contest 2012: MKPOD1Designed and Engineered by MobyKraft Inc.SPECIFICATIONS:-Capacity: 5 people - 1,250 lbs [567 Kg]-Dimensions: Height: 41 in [1041 mm], Width (max): 78 in [1981 mm]-Weight (approx.): 160 lbs [73 Kg]-Two access/exit hatches (main and emergency exit)-Equipped with breathing / sighting fittings-Lifting/anchoring lugs (also designed for helicopter lift)-Construction Materials: Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP), Plywood, Aluminum Alloy, high strength PVC, Stainless Steel and Galvanized Carbon Steel.-No special tools required for fabrication. No metal welding required.-It can be fixed (anchored) as storm shelter, or allowed to move (float) in case of flood or tsunami.-It is portable; can be handled, relocated or transported with ease.APPLICATIONS:Storm Shelter Hurricanes Cyclones Typhoons Tornadoes (twisters) Tsunamis Floods Earthquakes Landslides AvalanchesEmergency shelter for High Mountain or Arctic/AntarcticExtreme/Dangerous EnvironmentsSevere WeatherACCESSORIES:Support Plans for "Pod & Electric Motor"Anchoring Details Plans. MORE DETAILS:MKPOD1 was designed and tested to withstand impact loads, strong water waves and wind loads, collapsing compression (force) loads and pressure (fluid) loads, using advanced finite element analysis (FEA) - structural and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and real scale tests. The internal aluminum alloy structure combined with the external composite shield, were specifically designed for high strength but low weight.Related videos:- FEA/Structural analysis: CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic) analyses: In Action at the Sea: You don't need to have previous experience working with fiberglass to build the MKPOD1. Our detailed fabrication instructions and plans show what do you need and how to do it, step by step. Required material and parts are orderable online (worldwide), and links to the suppliers are also included.MKPOD1's Fabrication Package (Plans, Instructions, List of Materials and Tools) can be ordered at!survival-pods
