Marshall SV - Ground support for RAF Astor squadron

Marshall Land Systems : 03 December, 2008  (Special Report)
The announcement this week that the RAF has formally brought ASTOR into service with Number 5 (Army Co-operation) Squadron is good news for Cambridge based Marshall SV.
Marshall SV designed and delivered the 'ground environment' of the system which uses a high flying aircraft to gather data and down load it to the 'ground environment' in real time. Here the data is examined, processed and passed on to those units and organizations that can use, or need to act on, it.



Marshall SV built the shelters for the vehicles that form the mobile ground control stations, these accompany forward troops, and the ground control stations located at more permanent but repositionable locations such as forward air bases.



“MSV faced many challenges in the design and build of these battle winning systems,” said Tim Otter, Future Business Development Director at Marshall SV. “These included the weight of the equipment that needed fitting to such a small vehicle, protecting the crew and the equipment against Chemical, Biological and Radiological weapons and the extremes of hot and cold climates, and removing the heat given off by the processing computers.” He added, “This extremely complex engineering and integration problem was completed to time and cost by the team Marshall SV dedicated to the project, demonstrating again our expertise in managing complex programmes.”
