TIA, Airport Surveillance Radar
Tampa International Airport, Florida
Owner: Hillsborough County Aviation Authority
Construction of a new tower platform for the airport surveillance radar (ASR-9) for Tampa International Airport. The project is required to eliminate height constraints associated with the development of the North Terminal Complex. The facility includes a tower constructed of pre-cast reinforced concrete at a height of approximately 140’ with associated stairs and elevator to access a machine control room on the top floor. The project also includes associated site work and construction of an underground duct bank for communications between the new radar equipment and the FAA facility (control tower) at the main terminal of Tampa International.
