Air National Guard Tower Simulator Shelter
Point Naval Air Station at Kalaeloa Airfield
20'10"x31'3" double-wide building holds a 24'x20' air
traffic control simulator room and a 12' x 20' radar simulator room.
For clear viewing of the simulator monitors, the interior walls
and ceiling of the room are painted black and the carpet is dark
brown. There are no windows, which helps keep the building cool.
The exterior was designed with T1-11 exterior siding, gooves 8"
on center, Gable Roof and standard wall-hung air conditioning units.
color scheme of beige body and brown trims blends with existing
buildings at the airfield. To accommodate the simulator projectors,
consoles, servers and PCs, 20-amp duplex outlets, each on a separate
breaker, were installed throughout the building. The breaker panel
is accessible without having to move the TSS visual system components.
All servers are powered through a non-interruptable power supply
that provides for a timely shut down of the system in case of power
failures. A fire alarm system was provided as well as high-speed
data jacks and a communication panel. The simulator room was designed
with its own 3-ton air conditioning unit and the briefing room with
a 1.25-ton unit.
