Customized Communication Antenna Support for the US Navy
Crane Naval Base needed a customized tilt-up monopole to support communication antennas on their military base in Crane, IN.
ARE Telecom was contracted by G3 Technologies to manufacture and install three AFS 350 ballasted foundation systems with a customized tilt-up/self-raising monopole to support communication antennas on a military naval base in Crane, IN. The antennas had to be easily rotated in order to precisely adjust their orientation. The foundation had to be above ground with a limited foot print and easily moveable.
ARE designed a pole providing G3 Technologies with a simple, yet effective solution to change the orientation of the antennas using rotating aluminum plates. The pole can be raised and lowered with a motorized screw jack. The top section can be rotated while resting horizontally on a pedestal. The foundations were pre-assembled in our warehouse to meet the time constraint of the customer.
