Will-Burt Pneumatic Masts Fulfill Critical Component of Iron Dome

Pneumatic mast is only one of many that Will-Burt produces for Departments of Defense around the globe

The Will-Burt Company, the world’s premier manufacturer of telescoping mast and tower elevation solutions for surveillance, communication antenna and scene lighting systems supplies the critical antenna elevation mast system that is a critical component for Iron Dome. Iron Dome is a mobile air defense missile system deployed to protect against rocket attack along Israel’s northern and southern borders.

Heavy Duty Locking Pneumatic Masts

The Will-Burt mast system integrated into Iron Dome is the company’s Heavy Duty Locking Pneumatic Mast. Will-Burt’s pneumatic masts are rugged, stable and proven over many years of use as ground or vehicle mounted elevation systems for antenna or surveillance sensors, including in harsh environments like Iraq and Afghanistan. Will-Burt’s locking pneumatic masts have also been used as the antenna elevation system for the Patriot Missile Defense system.

“Will-Burt is proud to serve such a vital role in the performance of the Iron Dome Missile Defense System”, said Jeffrey O. Evans, Will-Burt's President, CEO and Chairman. “Will-Burt mast performance and reliability is proven in many applications and in the fulfillment of many solutions, from Military and other government uses in fire and law enforcement to private sector uses in the television broadcast and cellular telecommunications industries.”

John Stroia, Chief Operating Officer for Will-Burt added “Customers seek out Will-Burt mast and tower elevation solutions when they require a higher level of capability, performance and reliability. Our products ensure optimal performance of surveillance sensors and antenna systems for critical military and non-military operations.”

Beyond its pneumatic masts, Will-Burt produces a wide array of high-performance masts that are used by Defense Departments across the globe. Included in its portfolio are its range of lighter weight, high strength carbon fiber masts – from its low deflection Stiletto mast and its VelociRaptor mast which enables on-the-move surveillance and elevation of Remote Weapons Stations to its Quick Erecting Antenna Mast family of field masts and man-portable Expedition Series field masts.

In addition to Will-Burt’s US mast operations, Will-Burt’s wholly-owned subsidiary in Waischenfeld, Germany, produces high-performance spindle drive and cable drive mast systems for Departments of Defense in Europe and beyond. Will-Burt also has a wholly-owned subsidiary in Tulsa, OK which manufactures telescoping lattice towers for military, telecommunications, oil & gas, and other industry segments.
