The Ke-P1 (Series) Collapsible Rapid Deployment Module is a portable habitat module with the ability to fold up for transport.
The Collapsible Rapid Deployment Module (CRDM) were originally created to fulfill the requirements of the Scientific Studies Service (SSS). The needed to transport their base camp structures in the space requirements of the Yui-class Scout ships loaned to them. The structures are 4 meters tall, but the holds of the ships were barely half that. It was out of this situation that the CRDM was conceived.
Due to cost considerations, the Star Army opted to use Durandium Alloy rather than Zesuaium for the body. This had the unfortunate side effect of leaving the CRDM somewhat under-insulated, necessitating the need for an optional quilted interior liner (available from Star Army logistics) when in extreme environments.

See Damage Rating (Version 3) for an explanation of the damage system.
The CRDM is constructed from a Durandium Alloy (or rarely, Zesuaium) frame, and covered in 1 cm thick sheets of Durandium Alloy (or rarely, Zesuaium). There are three hatches on each module. One on each end and on on the side.
Viewed from the end they are hexagonal. A split hatch is centered on the ends. When opened the top half swings up, and the lower half drops down.
A plastic umbilical can be attached at the point indicated in white. This allows modules to be connected together and provides an environmental seal.
When the CRDM deploys the top section raises up, it slides in slots in the front and rear upper panels, and lifts them into place. Once the top section is in place the end panels are swung up and secured.
The CRDM uses standard equipment, that is mounted into racks made for the CRDM. These lock into the tracks in the ceiling and floor of the module.
The .3 meters (1 foot) of the top and bottom sections is used for wiring, plumbing, and embedded lighting. The surface of these has power and data connections as well as tracks for equipment to be moved. This allows equipment to be repositioned prior to collapsing the module. All equipment that is mounted to the floor or ceiling must be no more than 1.5 meters in height.
The doorway on the front of the module, can be attached to a Star Army Portable Shelter, Type 30 by a similar umbilical as is used to connect separate modules.
The header and footer sections leave 3.4 meters (11.45 feet) of space floor to ceiling.
All Collapsable Rapid Deployment Modules have the following equipment:
