Product Description

The mobile ATC tower TMT 8100 was designed to provide flexible and rapidly operational air traffic control services complying with high performances requirements. The mobile ATC tower can be elevated up to 8 meters. Transportable by air, sea and road, the TMT 8100 may be rapidly set up and its deployment is completely autonomous. Thanks to innovative technical features, the TMT 8100 is an advanced ATC backup solution.

Military applications

  • Temporary operations on remote locations under equiped or temporary runway
  • Rapid deployments for emergency missions
  • Relief operations (natural disaster, forest, fire)
  • ATC back-up on airport where the main tower is damaged
  • Tactical operations (rapid relocation of the TMT)

Civil applications

  • Replacement of a permanent non-operating tower damaged or undergoing renovation works
  • Temporary ATC facility shared by several airports to ensure ATC services in case of;
  • Airport modernization
  • Airport expansion
  • Temporary ATC tower on big events (sport events, aeronautic shows)
  • Training centers

Performances
Thanks to its lifting system, TMT 8100 can be elevated up to 8 meters. The mobile ATC tower is elevated at a rate of 4m/mn and provides an operational height of up to 8 meters for the controllers settled down in the cabin.
The TMT is deployed and set up in less than 2 hours by two people. At the end of an operation, the transport mode is recovered in less than 1 hour.
The control cabin is fully equipped in order to establish a local air traffic control by two to three controllers through VHF and/or UHF ground-air communications.

General concept
The mobile tower TMT 8100 concept relies on a scissors lift – mounted cabin system integrated to a trailer. The tower is equipped with a power supply generator that provides an autonomous power supply of tower deployment and operating mode operations. The control cabin is equipped with all the equipment required to provide ATC services: radiocommunication system, antennas system, meteorological station and display equipment, time distribution system, recorders, as well as all the accessories required for controllers comfort.
