Over the years, the domes have been used by various military departments for a wide range of applications taking advantage of their durability, ease of assembly and portability. This includes the US Navy whom have used them as portable command & communication centres, troop housing, storage and radio/communications housing.
The Indian Army are setting up the domes for a new camp in a remote alpine mountain area. Militaries can utilise the domes in a range of ways including accommodation, offices, command centres, base camps, medical units, munitions storage and portable facilities.

U.S and international aid organisations use the domes to establish portable command centers from which to respond to natural and man-made disasters. Near the front lines of massive forest fires where durability and portability are primary concerns, the U.S. Forest Service shelters its fire fighters and command personnel in the domes.
