Transponder Landing System Installation Completed in Antarctica

ANPC Advanced Navigation And Positioning Corporation
: 05 March, 2010  (Application Story)
The Teniente Marsh Base in Antarctica now benefits from transponder landing system from Advanced Navigation and Positioning Corporation
Advanced Navigation and Positioning Corporation (ANPC), an innovative, globally progressive and green company, will celebrate the completion of the installation of its Transponder Landing System (TLS) at Teniente Marsh Base on King George Island in Antarctica on March 7th. ANPC will also participate in the 11th annual Antarctica Marathon as both a sponsor and runner.


In November 2009, the Brazilian Air Force selected ANPC’s TLS—a ground-based guidance system capable of supplying vertical and horizontal approach guidance to terrain-challenged airports, while simultaneously utilizing existing airborne equipment to minimize operator costs—on the basis of performance following a competitive evaluation of the traditional Instrument Landing System (ILS).

“Our TLS is a green alternative to traditional Instrument Landing Systems, as it uses less energy, requires less maintenance, and enhances safety, while having a substantially smaller footprint at the airfield,” says ANPC’s CEO Jeff Mains. “ANPC’s efforts are also giving scientists and other humanitarians more access to Antarctica to research environmental trends and explore the ecological richness of this remarkable continent.”

March 7th also marks the date of the Antarctic Marathon, in which ANPC’s CEO Jeff Mains will be running as an Antarctic resident. Only 100 runners (of approximately 5,000 applicants) from around the world were selected to run the Antarctica Marathon. As a part of the marathon, ANPC will be supporting ‘Oceanites,’ a nonprofit organization committed to anti-eco tourism to protect invaluable Antarctic resources.
