Image SPARKS, Nev., – Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) has provided the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry Division with a refurbished Mobile Tower System (MOTS) allowing for the rapid  deployment and establishment of Air Traffic Control (ATC) operations for an upcoming overseas deployment. This set of MOTS is pre-production equipment and is engineered and manufactured to support an earlier award from the U.S. Army Aviation Systems Command.

“SNC is proud to hand over this system in time for our customer’s deployment to theater,” said Greg Cox, corporate vice president of SNC’s Communication, Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management business area. “Meeting the 3rd Infantry Division’s additional requirements, delivering on schedule and providing increased capability for tactical airfields is critical to SNC and our commitment to our men and women in uniform.”

MOTS are a rapidly deployable air traffic control system with all necessary secure and non-secure communications radios and support equipment. The modular MOTS includes, an ATC Tower with organic 18kW power generators, a medium intensity solar powered airfield runway lighting system, and meteorological sensors. MOTS are capable of being airlifted by C-17 aircraft or CH-47 helicopter and support military air traffic control system operations by networking with other Air Traffic Service and Battle Command systems.
