​​​​Research & Planning

​Obstruction Mitigation.  Identify facility and equipment penetrations of airspace surfaces using existing data and new survey data where needed.  Determine which obstructions must remain, which can be waivered and which can be removed.  Develop plans showing how and where to relocate facilities and equipment, including execution documents if needed.

Asset Management.  Account for critical airfield equipment assets and relation to installation mission.  Apply industry benchmarks to assess equipment condition and failure vulnerability.  Review existing asset inventories for proper segregation of critical and non-critical assets.  Recommend or accomplish inventory updates where needed.

Technology Transition.  Provide planning, design and construction guidance for implementation of solar and LED systems on the airfield.  Conduct life-cycle cost estimates.  Perform value engineering, peer review, inspection, testing & commissioning.

Infrastructure Assessments.  Inspect airfield equipment assets including airfield lighting, signage, navigational aids, weather aids, apron lighting, cabling, and related low and medium voltage power systems.  Provide current condition assessments, estimated failure timeframes based on industry standards, and recommended maintenance and repair programs.

Airfield Master Planning.  Perform reviews of on-going and future airfield projects for compliance with design standards, to identify potential savings through alternative execution methods, and to identify any potential operational improvements through design.

Technical Training​​. Provide training to engineering and maintenance staff on airfield lighting and navigational aid systems and maintenance.  Material can include design and equipment engineering theory, recommended design practices, recommended inspection & testing procedures, and recommended maintenance procedures.  Custom coursework can be developed for specific systems at installations.
