Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake has taken delivery of the first article of an IDIQ government contract awarded to AMT to develop a next-generation flight threat simulator radar vehicle!
Miles from Death Valley, in a location where 120° summer heat is possible, air flow and reliable cooling capabilities are paramount. That is why AMT engineers ensured 30,000 BTUs of HVAC cool the electronics racks while installing a three-phase alternating generator for 20kW of output. Meanwhile, the cab is cooled via a rooftop air conditioning unit!
The new truck is based heavily on the Emmy Award Winning NBC Storm Ranger and employs a vertical lift table capable of elevating the radar unit up to 80” in the air while in motion!
When fully integrated by the Navy team, the truck will be able to simulate every conceivable threat an aircraft may encounter so they can develop countermeasures and train pilots. This new, innovative use of AMTs upfitting expertise has opened the gates to exciting avenues — the whole team is excited to explore the possibilities revealed by this revolutionary platform, the threat simulator radar!
Our award-winning engineering team flexed their capabilities to develop this experimental platform — the results exceeded expectations. We look for many more shipments to China Lake!
On top of being an incredibly adaptable platform, radar is undoubtedly the most critical tool in weather forecasting technology. AMT’s mobile radar trucks and trailers give news industries accuracy in a portable platform that gets you right inside the storm! Available in vehicle upfits and trailer versions, deployable radars track storms wherever they go while keeping a low clearance level suitable for urban travel.
When you need to be on the air from anywhere, your mobile broadcast equipment is your lifeline. AMT designs and builds mobile communication vehicles with easy-to-use system integration that gets new-age tech on the streets. Built by broadcast engineers — we understand the mission.
Storage options are as limitless and unique as your station’s requirements… but a popular option is our camera storage locker. We’ll install customized lockers in your News Truck for safe equipment storage (give us the specs in the “other requests” section).
Storage options are as limitless and unique as your station’s requirements. Custom Cabinets and Shelving can be adapted to provide secure equipment storage and supplies. Clutter inside the work area or rear storage area is a thing of the past. Talk to your AMT representative about your needs. We have literally hundreds of options available.
