World Leader in Advanced ILS Antennas

Airport Owners & Operators

Free Your Airport Of Current ILS Critical & Sensitive Area Constraints & Increase Your Profits!

Imagine being able to plan, design and build airport infrastructure constrained only by the limits of physical space and not by the signal behavior of any particular landing system.  Or imagine installing an ILS where you had been told would be cost prohibitive. Imagine the efficiencies produced when aircraft and ground crews are able to move about unencumbered by ILS Critical and Sensitive Areas, pilots landing confident of uninterrupted coupled approaches and ATC managing fewer numbers of delayed surface and airborne traffic. Now, imagine saving millions on site prep excavation or environmental wetlands mitigation and ending up turning a regional airport into an economic catalyst for the entire local community.

Intrigued? You don’t have to imagine these capabilities, you can get them! They are available right now from Watts Antenna Company. We have ILS solutions for all airport environments. From mountaintops to seaside locations, we can provide you a high performance Advanced ILS solution.

Watts Antenna Company manufactures high performance advanced ILS Antenna systems that can be utilized to increase airport capacity and efficiency or simply to provide ILS at the world’s toughest sites. For stand alone ILS Antenna System solutions or as comparable performance backup antenna systems for GPS/GNSS, either way, we will significantly increase the efficiency and capabilities of every airport in which our antennas are installed!

Pressure is intense on airports, particularly smaller ones, to employ their facilities in the most economically advantageous ways. For example, the inability to situate large hangars due to multipath concerns related to the use of standard ILS Antennas can disqualify some airports from coveted hub status. While ILS transmitter and monitor technology have significantly improved over the years, ILS antenna technology worldwide has lagged well behind.  The standard ILS Antenna array has relatively the same performance and overall design as it had for the past several decades even though it is the most important subsystem in providing improvements to any airspace system. While innovations have been limited due to lack of funding and interest, Watts Antenna Company, believing ILS had more to contribute, continued to innovate and to privately self fund Advanced ILS R&D.

Today, Watts Antenna Company has a full complement of Advanced ILS Antennas capable of significantly reducing ILS Critical and Sensitive Areas while simultaneously increasing airport capacity and operational safety wherever our antennas are deployed regardless of how challenging your sites may be.

So, before you modify your airport plans any further, we recommend you take a look at our product offerings and our main Stakeholders page to find out what you may be missing if our advanced performance antennas are not considered. We believe that airports and their communities could very quickly look much different than they do today once you become aware of the opportunities our Advanced ILS Antennas afford to develop your airport with significantly fewer limitations.
