Deployment at Alternative Runways

The original idea of mobile systems was to support fighters returning from missions to battle-damaged airfields. It can be a short notice requirement to deploy an arresting system at a temporary airfield or a forward airbase. There are now two types and levels of mobile systems available. The WT44/SM semi-mobile solution for the service of a number of known and site-prepared alternative runways and the MAAS fully mobile self-contained system based on trailers with USAF standard brakes for rapid installation on a range of different surfaces.
