Airfield Electrical Engineering for various electrical and FAA systems supporting the 13,400’ Runway 17R-35L. Our scope of work is broken out into the various subsystems shown below:
- Runway Status Lights – The scope of work here was to replace all the Takeoff Hold Lights (THL’s) and Runway Entrance Lights (REL’s) supporting Runway 17R-35L. This involved relocating each light, due to the hold bars shifting, and replacing the conductors all the way back to source.
- 35L/17R MALSRs – The scope of work here was to design a new MALSR system on the 35L Approach and modify the existing MALSR system on the 17R approach. The 35L MALSR design included locating each light station, specifying required lamp heights to establish a light plane within code requirements, designing new electrical infrastructure (Duct bank, manholes, conduit, etc.), as well as sizing and laying out conductors to power each steady burning lamp station as well as the flasher stations. The 17R MALSR design included making required adjustments to each light station on the first slope of the light plane, due to the end of runway being elevated about 9”.
- RWIS System – The scope of work for this system was to design a new runway weather information monitoring system for runway 17R-35L. This included installing 7 Passive pavement sensors in the runway that relayed information to (2) Remote Processing Units installed on new equipment racks along the runway, which would then pass any weather / surface temperature conditions required to the tower and other locations as required.
- PAPI Modifications – The scope of work for this system was to modify both the 35L and 17R PAPI systems due to a change in Runway elevation. PAPI legs were modified to put the PAPIs in line with the new Runway Centerline elevation, and new conductors were run to each unit.
