Desert Aegis

The most important element of the temporary building constructed by us is the outer surface „skin” which is similar to the man’s. The receptors “thermometers” of this react to the outer environment due to the intelligent control “brain”. The driving engine of the structure is the trob fluctuation of heat “heart” by the sun.
Its frame is solid, it can be moved like a human skeleton. Its advantages can be useful mainly in the desert and semi-desert area (26% of the Earth area).
The structure is foldingsible so it can be transported easily both in the air and on the ground. It can even be dropped to the ground by a parachute. It can be made easily and varied later as only one stanchion divides the inner space in the middle. (eg: Rising the trash structure we can place a waterblock container anywhere.)
The structure in closed condition makes a protecting shell which grasps into each other. Thus they protect the electronic and mechanical structure placed in the middle. This works the DESERT AEGIS skin without energy intake.
The essence of the skin is the 3 – layer structure which is usual in the trash buildings and can be heated or cooled. The difference is that we filled up the middle layer with PCM material, which is capable of emitting and drawing a lot of latens heat.
(Picture 4: results of the research)
The fluctuation of heat which occurs on the desert or semi-desert area (60 -30 C difference) can be made average by the shell structure.
The intelligent “skin” does not set limit to forms. It can be applied to anything like in the case of a container The intelligent control programming provides it is adaptable to the climate.
