MONOTUBE TOWERS FOR ATC APPLICATIONS


Rapid Installation, Small Footprint

Easat Monotube Towers have been designed for locating Air Traffic Control radars on or around airports, where line of sight restrictions or real estate limitations demand novel installation solutions.

They have been designed specifically for mounting the full range of Easat antennas and pedestals, and a wide variety of similar third-party supplied equipment.

Each Monotube Tower and integral equipment room is capable of housing all equipment necessary for a stand-alone radar station, including transceivers, Inverter Motor Control, UPS, control and monitoring station for the radar system and dual air conditioning / heating systems.

Each tower has its own lightning protection and LED obstruction lights. Access to the tower top platform is via an internal vertical ladder with a fall arrest system for safe climbing. The inside is illuminated up the full height and has rest stages for the climber. Alternatively, an internal staircase can be provided as an option.

Foundations for the Monotube Tower are specifically designed for the proposed site and work on the foundation would normally take up to 6 to 8 weeks to complete prior to erection of the tower.

Tower erection is rapid and in some instances may be achieved overnight.

Easat Towers for Radar Systems include:

Easat Monotube Towers are specifically designed for mounting the full range of Easat antennas and pedestals, and a wide variety of similar third-party supplied equipment.

Flexibility of siting for Monotube Towers is invaluable for SMR positioning where system performance and target detection is especially critical.

Due to the small footprint of the Slimline Monotube with no requirement for separate equipment room the tower can be located adjacent to or between tall buildings, hangers or on airport aprons, as is the case at London Heathrow.

Monotube Towers have a number of benefits over conventional lattice towers, including:

  • Rapid installation time
  • Minimal tower footprint
  • Ability to use a number of floors inside the tower for equipment, thereby minimising or eliminating the need for an adjacent equipment cabin
  • Enhanced safety and security for installed equipment since it is all located either inside or on top of the Monotube Tower
  • Reduced whole-life costs due to following factors: exterior finish has a life-span of 20 years; tower fastenings are internal to the Monotube Tower; minimal annual inspection requirements
  • Superior radar performance through installation of transceivers in air conditioned integral equipment room, with shorter waveguide runs than can normally be achieved via lattice tower installations
  • Greater aesthetic appeal of Monotube Towers
