AJT Engineering Air Traffic Control Design, Pre-Engineered Cabins and Communications Systems
AJT supplies a complete suite of air traffic control (ATC) equipment, including prefabricated visual control rooms, ATM communications, Navaid system integration and installation, and control tower designs for defence clients.
Used by clients worldwide, our services include voice switch, recorder, primary and secondary weather and automated weather observing systems (AWOS). We also provide airfield lighting control, airfield surveillance and approach radar.
Air traffic control cabins for quick assembly
AJT’s modular, prefabricated cabins are equipped within three months by highly skilled tradesmen and are tested, disassembled, wrapped and shipped internationally.
The visual control room is functional two-weeks after delivery, while the quick and easy installation of the cab means contractors in the tower shaft are able to commence work sooner.
AJT’s cabs are available in various standard configurations, including 6m with four or six sides, 7.3m with six or eight-sides, and 13m with ten sides. Custom configurations are available or request.
The cabs meet ICAO / FAA standards and are constructed around the controllers and equipment. The control room is designed to accommodate all systems but primarily focused on continual communications of the air traffic controller with the ground and airborne aircraft. All engineers and designers are experienced with communications and cab equipment.
Fully equipped ATC cabins for military use
The cab’s steel framework is manufactured by certified tradesmen and outfitted with the exterior shell by licenced roofing professionals.
A range of options are available in the interior such as complete console furnishings, raised access flooring, and ceiling and dimmable lighting. Other options include break area sink appliances, as well as isolated equipment electrical circuits.
Speciality glazing is manufactured to suit local conditions and is supplied with all installation materials. Glazing is packaged and shipped with the cab, allowing it to be installed on-site by local glaziers.
The roof system can be accessed using folding stairs and features antenna mounting, cable management, and suppression solutions for lightning and power surges.
Customised ATC towers
AJT provides customised control tower designs, taking into consideration the airport’s requirements and budget, with particular emphasis on producing a strong, reliable structure using high-quality materials.
By liaising with local authorities, tower operators and airport personnel, the company is able to provide a simple and functional design that keeps expenses to a minimum without compromising on quality or reliability.
Communications and weather equipment installation for ATC cabs
Installation of communications and weather equipment is performed in AJT’s prefabricated cab, while the fitting of the final systems can be conducted on-site.
Before the start of the design process, system planning takes place to enable the new control tower to house the devices.
AJT has been involved in designing, installing, constructing and implementing air traffic control towers since 1998.
The company has supplied cabs worldwide across three continents and 12 US states.
AJT has integrated, installed and repaired in excess of 30 ATC communications and weather systems, and has been involved in a number of design projects.
Staff have been responsible for designing, developing and modifying launch pads, spacecraft processing facilities and other highly important infrastructure for Nasa, the US Military, and several major prime defence contractors.
