The proposed works at RAAF Base East Sale include a new sensor equipment building at Deadmans Hill to house the electrical and communication services required to support the new Phase 2 sensor capability at the site. The existing sensor equipment building will be converted to accommodate a technical work area and spares storage room to replace an existing demountable building at the site. The proposed works also include minor modifications to the recently constructed tower and airfield systems complex to accommodate the Phase 3 equipment. The air traffic control simulator room at the School of Air Traffic Control will also be modified to accommodate the Phase 3 equipment.
Sensor equipment building. The proposed sensor equipment building will be a single-storey structure housing a generator, uninterruptible power supply room, switch room and communications room. An existing building on the site will be converted to house support functions for the sensors including a technical work area and spares storage room.
Airfield systems complex. The proposed airfield systems complex upgrade will include services upgrades and layout alterations to the existing building to accommodate the Phase 3 equipment. The services upgrades will include replacement electrical generation systems to provide the level of service continuity required by the Phase 3 capability.
Air traffic control tower. The proposed tower upgrade will include minor improvements to the existing tower to accommodate the Phase 3 equipment. This will involve the fit out of two rooms specifically for the equipment. The old tower will be demolished following the commissioning of the new facility.
School of Air Traffic Control. Modifications to the air traffic control simulator room will be carried out to enable the transition to the Phase 3 System. The works will include partitioning and new wall and floor finishes.
