Marshall SV delivers ILS shelters
Marshall SV, part of Marshall Land Systems, has delivered a number of Instrument Land System (ILS) shelters to the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) as part of a new Air Traffic Control infrastructure which the MOD is establishing in Afghanistan. The shelters are being used to house Instrument Landing Systems, and will increase the ILS and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) sustainment capability, primarily for the RAF’s fixed wing operations.
According to the company, the contract for four shelters was placed by Thales UK to support an order from the Air Defence and Air Traffic Systems (ADATS) IPT at the UK MOD.
The ILS Shelters are manufactured to sustain constant environmental conditions when ambient conditions range from the -42°C to +49°C, typical of conditions in Afghanistan. The shelters house a range of highly accurate radio-navigation aids, provided by Thales, to determine an aircraft’s position by reference to instruments. Each shelter accommodates two air-conditioning units and an electrical infrastructure to thermally stabilise and power up the radio-navigation aids. The shelters can be transported by road, rail, sea and air and are compliant with the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) regulations for air transport.
