This satellite communications facility provides critical backup for its sister SATCOM relay station in Ramstein, Germany. It comprises highly sophisticated communications equipment and infrastructure for operations, administration and maintenance functions. It also has 12 UAS SATCOM relay structural pads and foundations with access roads, utilities, and underground conduit connectivity to the Ramstein facility. A planning and design charrette process involved representatives from the base, Global Hawk, L-E NAVFAC, and the design team. Strategies for energy efficiency were paramount considering the facility’s equipment, and measures such as solar power and chillers result in a carbon neutral footprint and reduced operating costs.
