Jackson MSSR Radar at East Trap Club Photosimulations

FAA, Jackson, Wyoming

Jackson Hole Airport needed a more powerful long range radar MSSR cabability to serve the Central Rocky Mountan Region and make a national Contribution to the North American air traffic control system. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and local authorities, including Jackson Hole Airport, required a complete feasibility study.

This study included environmental considerations such as view impacts. It would consider a number of tower locations and address visual impact concerns from specific areas. POITRA was selected to provide the graphics support for the project. POITRA provided a series of photosimulations for the two primary canidate tower sites.

Take a closer look! The entire facility was created using POITRA custom and library 3D Models (click to magnify).

The Engineer provided excellent photographs representing the three most important view sheds. Each would be used as base photographs for photosimulations of each site.

POITRA modelers created a detailed 3D model for a report figure describing the equipment building, proposed 17ft tall tower and the ATCBI-6 antenna. The model was camera matched to each base photograph for both sites, lighted and rendered. The renders were then composited to the base photograph and traditional digital painting methods used to finish the simulations.

POITRA had no prior experience specifically with airport radar towers and antennas but easily understood the plans for the various components. We quickly learned about the specific concerns asscociated with towers and also that the process closely resembles that for other types of public works projects.

Graphic artists at POITRA marked the tower locations to make the simulations into figures for the study document. POITRA also created graphic map figures that identified the tower site options and the view shed locations for the primary sites.

All of the POITRA figures appeared in the final study document and visually reflected the quality of the preparation of the other parts of the document. article end
