1 KW Flight Path Warning System Solar Battery Powered MAPPS system
This 1,050 Watt MAPPS system was installed at the US Air Force airbase at
Fort Campbell, Kentucky. It is used to power a laser levelling guidance
system that assists the pilots in their landing. It is used primarily in
war zones where the pilots need to perform "hot landings" where their glide
path is very steep and this system alerts them if they are coming in "too
hot". Solar Electric Supply has deployed these systems and systems like this one to Africa for the United Nations
and in the Middle East for the US Military.
This system included a battery charger for emergency generator charging, and
an outdoor NEMA 3R insulated battery enclosure that is powder-coated white
A battery charger was added for charging
the batteries with a generator if needed.
