The P3I BIDS consists of biological detection, identification and sampling equipment integrated into a S788 Lightweight Multipurpose Shelter mounted on a M1097 heavy-variant High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV).
In addition to the detection equipment, the shelter includes collective protection and environmental control equipment, navigation, meteorological and communication (HF/VHF) systems, and a M8A1 chemical agent alarm.
The system is designed to allow removal of the shelter from the vehicle for fixed site applications. A PU-801 power generator and transformer is towed by the HMMWV to provide an external power source.
