|Shelter with antenna on top.||Tactical radome with transport shelter.|
AFC manufactures custom shelters to solve a variety of needs. Typical examples are transportable uplinks and "quick-reaction" secure (TEMPEST quiet) airborne deliverable shelter modules. The shelter used by communications companies may be as modest as an air-conditioned half-rack uplink electronics module for a transportable antenna system, to major television station uplinks consisting of truck, transmitting antenna and environmentally controlled shelter. Secure shelters are customized to meet unique objectives and shipping dates and are often configured with environmental controls, appropriate electrical filtering, electronic racks, power distribution, backup power system and antennas. Often shelters encompass dual use roles. An example is the tactical system composed of environmentally controlled 8x8x20 foot shelter housing a 26 foot diameter radome ready for immediate deployment.
Accessories and optional features may include TEMPEST design, personnel and equipment access doors, fire and smoke detectors, interior and exterior alarm systems, emergency lighting, anti static/fire retardant carpet or vinyl flooring, closed circuit television and C-130 flyaway modules.
