Introduces MT Series Trailer-Mounted Pneumatic Mast System

Washington, D.C. – (October 22, 2012) The Will-Burt Company is exhibiting the new MT Series Trailer-Mounted Mast System from Integrated Tower Systems (ITS) at the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting & Exposition (Booth #201).

The ITS MT Series Trailer-mounted Mast System features a self-supporting or guyed, locking or non-locking pneumatic mast with an innovative tilt capability. The MT Series features an enclosed compressor for mast tilt, extension and retraction with additional space available for optional power generation and equipment enclosure.

The ITS MT Series is ideal for deployment in virtually any location. A low profile and modular design affords this model the advantage of C-130 aircraft, flat-bed, or standard fleet-vehicle transport as well as fully-assembled containerization.

A heavy-duty steel constructed trailer comes standard with tandem axles, 16″ multi-terrain tires, all-wheel electric or optional hydraulic/surge brakes, a trailer break-away devise, outrigger stabilization, LED lighting, and an impact and weather resistant, anti-slip coating over a diamond plate steel operating platform.

With the use of integrated lifting provisions and/or fork-pockets, the entire mast support structure may be easily removed from its trailer for integration atop an appropriate foundation, truck-bed or skid.

“The MT Series represents a combination of the high performance Will-Burt pneumatic masts with the superior trailer platform integration capabilities and expertise of ITS” said Jeff Evans, President, CEO and Chairman of the Will-Burt Company. “This product augments ITS’ trailer-mounted telescoping lattice tower products and expands the Will-Burt spectrum of mobile elevation solutions delivering products that satisfy a complete breadth of height and weight capacity requirements.”

Headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Will-Burt Company, ITS specializes in the sale and rental of rapid deployment, portable, telescoping tower systems; communication sites on-wheels; and tower-integrated, mobile command and communication centers. Integrated Tower Systems also provides an extensive line of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), customized and military-spec, portable tower solutions.

Will-Burt is also introducing at AUSA its VelociRaptor mast with Elevated Remote Weapons Station, the new preeminent mast in the world, delivering a unique combination of strength, stiffness, extension/retraction speed, payload lifting capacity and mast size and weight which enables accurate, elevated line-of-sight fire by remote weapons on-the-halt. The VelociRaptor is capable of withstanding the recoil of elevated weapon systems allowing for greater, safer, more flexible deployment. In addition, the elevation capability enhances warfighter safety by broadening visibility and deployment scenarios over uneven terrain, walls and other obstacles.
