Representative Fabrication Projects

  • AN/TPS-75 3D Air Search Radar Tower/Platform

    KAYA fabricated and erected two 55-foot AN/TPS-75 3D Air Search Radar Tower/Platforms. The AN/TPS-75 is a three-dimensional search radar that can be disassembled, packed, and transported. KAYA was tasked with fabricating and erecting these towers for form, fit, and function acceptance within an aggressive 45 day timeframe—more in keeping with the fabrication and erection of one tower. The towers were designed 55 feet in height and 21 feet square to enable them to withstand 150 MPH winds, allowing them to be versatile enough to be used in harsh environments and extraordinary conditions. Despite the accelerated timeframe, the towers were completed within the contract terms and schedule. The two towers support the Space and Naval Systems Center, Charleston (SPAWAR), and were shipped to overseas locations to support U.S. military efforts.

  • Cougar Whale Tail Antenna Mounting Brackets

    SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic tasked KAYA with the fabrication of equipment mounting and cable management brackets used to replace existing units on the military’s MRAP COUGAR vehicles currently deployed to Afghanistan. A total of 1443 vehicles required kits that consisted of nine pieces and 166 required a four piece conversion kit. These kits were nicknamed “Cougar Whale Tail Antenna Mounting Kits” based on the name of one of the antennas that mounted with brackets included in both versions of the kits. At peak, KAYA fabricated 50 complete kits and 52 conversion kits per week, and successfully met all delivery requirements with 100% quality inspection acceptance.
