Suppliers of C130 transportable HERCon™ units

By Projects

Market: Aviation

Solution: Operational control centres

Weatherhaven RCS was awarded a tender which required that we provide the South African Air Force (SAAF) with a system that can be quickly deployed, is easy to install and is just as quickly redeployed. Our solution was hard-walled containers or HERCons™ to be used as operational control offices.

These units were built to be C130 transportable, and were shipped as a standard 6 m ISO shipping container. Once on-site, this container expanded to three times the transit floor space. We ensure that all services are pre-installed, with external power, water and wastewater connected. These operational control centres are the heart of all air force operations locally and internationally.
