On-Board Systems Overview
The overall guiding principle used in the creation of the BIOB trailer was KISS, Keep It Simple Survival. The on-board systems are specifically designed to work flawlessly under the most extreme and punishing conditions. Each component supplied with the trailer is hand picked for reliable and function. Flashy and Cheap were elements not even considered in the design or construction. There are no veneers, fancy upholstery or soft carpets and preparing for life and death situations is not the time or the place to be trying to save a few dollars.
Most components were designed for use in harsh marine boating and rugged off-road 4-wheeling vehicles environments. These durable components combine to create durable systems.
This trailer can not be bought off the shelf at the local big box store. It can not be found pre-built at the local trailer lot. No other 5' x 10' trailer offers these features. An incredibly strong frame built with 3" enclosed tubing. A specially built axle with a 3 ton capacity, electric brakes and 15" radial trailer tires.

All electrical components sensitive to Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) damage are delivered in the trailer installed in a Faraday Cage. This cage is sealed and will protect all the components during storage. It should be noted, however, that once this cage is unsealed the components will no longer be protected.
An optional propane powered generator can be used to charge batteries or supply A/C power for high power draw tools and electronics.

Knowledge and equipment are required to handle health issues. A user that doesn't have the knowledge of how to clean a wound and apply bandage is as unprepared as a surgeon who can't close a wound because of the lack of sueter and needle. The model remedies both of these by providing both knowledge and equipment. An easy to use first aid guide provides guidance for even the most traumatic events. The equipment includes a comprehensive first aid kit, a field trauma kit and a dental emergency kit.
