Antenna Transport Trailer

Clegg Industries customized this 53 ft. drop trailer to house and transport a TRAC-A Rotodome AEW Surveillance Radar Antenna. This highly efficient rotodome antenna is mounted on top of the carrier based E-2C Hawkeye aircraft, providing fleet protection for the United States Navy. The US Coast Guard and the US Customs Service have adapted the capabilities of this reliable antenna for use in anti narcotics smuggling operations mounted on P-3 Orions. This antenna is also in use by the governments of Japan, Egypt, France, Taiwan, and Singapore.
