Aircraft Towing Systems Digs in to Install Proto-type at Ardmore Airpark
Aircraft Towing Systems World Wide LLC, kicked up some dirt with a backhoe delivered Thursday to the Ardmore Airpark.
The machine-made room for the installation of an innovative system designed to transport aircraft from the runway via the taxiway to the airport gates and back to the runway — all without using the aircraft’s main engine.
ATS is an U.S. company formed in Oklahoma in June 2016. It has both foreign and U.S. ownership. It’s leasing ramp space at the airport and will soon install a full-scale working prototype to test the research and design work performed on contract by Oklahoma State University’s New Product Development Center.
Once realized, the potential positive impact of using ATS could one day improve aviation safety, save fuel and time between takeoffs, as well as reduce harmful emissions and noise at airports worldwide.
An electric-powered, fully automated system, ATS’ tow dolly, pull cart and channel can be configured for gate push-back only or for the entire airport. ATS plans to unveil the prototype by spring.
