requirements technical operations
REQUIREMENTSTechnical Operations

Sustain facility and equipment by performing upgrades and modifications to meet:

  • FAA installation standards
  • National Airspace System (NAS) configuration criteria
  • Flight Plan 2004 – 2008 performance goals
  • National Electric Code (NEC)
  • Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) standards
future projects technical operations
FUTURE PROJECTSTechnical Operations

Upgrade, modify existing facilities and equipment:

  • Supplemental Aviation Weather Reporting Station (SAWRS) electrical infrastructure
  • SAWRS consoles
  • FAA-certifiable radio communications equipment and related Digital Voice Recording System (DVRS)
  • Bandwidth Manager
future projects continued technical operations
FUTURE PROJECTS (continued)Technical Operations

Upgrade, modify existing facilities and equipment:

  • Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) antennas
  • NAVAIDS Remote Monitoring System (NRMS) for NDB and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME)
  • Aeronautical Information System Replacement (AISR) computer workstations
  • Pre-positioned spare parts
sawrs electrical infrastructure technical operations
SAWRS Electrical InfrastructureTechnical Operations
  • Remove unauthorized mods applied since early 1970s
  • Remove known safety hazards (e.g. abandoned “live wires”)
  • Replace obsolete distribution panels and circuit breakers
  • Install lightning protection and approved grounding to accommodate latest solid state electronic equipment
  • Apply corrective measures to bring facilities up to current FAA installation standards and NEC codes
sawrs consoles technical operations
SAWRS ConsolesTechnical Operations
  • Remove inherently cluttered, table-top type operating positions not suitable for current solid state electronics equipment
  • Install standard ergonomic consoles that facilitate adequate cooling, connectivity, mounting, servicing and easy access to operational, and administrative equipment
radio communications and dvrs technical operations
Radio Communicationsand DVRSTechnical Operations
  • Replace non FAA-certifiable radio transmitters and receivers with latest Motorola CM-200 series that are also compatible with voice recording systems
  • Install DVRS for reliable, secure, radio transmission recordings between SAWRS personnel and pilots to improve support of aviation inquiries and aircraft accident investigations
bandwidth manager technical operations
Bandwidth ManagerTechnical Operations
  • Optimize future telecommunications
  • PLAN: Install interface to National Weather Service (NWS) Integrated Satellite Communication System (ISCS)
    • NWS: weather forecasts, warnings, information, weather contour maps etc.
    • FAA: communication support for NRMS
  • UPDATE: Exploring alternative options
ndb antennas technical operations
NDB AntennasTechnical Operations
  • Remove existing T-top twin tower antennas not suitable for harsh, corrosive marine environments
  • Replace with single tower Marconi vertical antenna
    • Smaller overall “footprint”
    • Lower surface area exposed to corrosive elements
    • Easier servicing and maintenance
    • Increased facility reliability and availability
nrms for ndb and dme technical operations
NRMS for NDB and DMETechnical Operations
  • Currently, only local control and monitoring
  • Install FAA standard OPTO-22 based NRMS
    • Remote monitor and control
    • Remote equipment diagnostics and reset
    • Timely status/failure reporting facilitates expeditious NOTAM issuance by POCC
    • Reduced facility restoration travel costs
aisr workstations technical operations
AISR WorkstationsTechnical Operations
  • Currently, PC computers running non-supportable AFTN/MET software
  • Install new workstations
    • Run web-based Aeronautical Information System Replacement (AISR) software
    • Enhance intranet security
spare parts technical operations
Spare PartsTechnical Operations
  • Pre-position adequate parts and “hot” spares to reduce time to restore facilities (e.g.)
    • Visual Aids (PAPI, REIL)
    • Communications and DVRS
    • Handheld radios
    • NDB and DME
    • UPS, PCS, EGs
    • DMUXs
    • Batteries and chargers
