The Wi-Fi Dock is a dedicated aircraft antenna access solution, specially developed for related aircraft inner fuselage and crown works.
The pivoting cage on the upper level can be lowered onto the aircraft fuselage, protecting operators during maintenance work on antennas and similar parts.
Adjoining modules will complement the system and grant simultaneous access to the inner fuselage for quick entry to the relevant work areas.
CTI Systems offers 2 types of Wi-Fi Docks, either for use at wide body aircraft or at narrow body aircraft of A320 series (and any other aircraft of similar dimensions).
Fitted with heavy-duty castors, the dock modules can be easily towed on the ground and stabilised by spindle-type supports once in position. The modules are height-adjustable (manual or motorized via pendant control) and will carry up to 4 operators. Access will be granted via the height adjustable stairs from the hangar floor.
All platforms are secured with handrails and self-closing doors. Fitted with sliding drawers best fit to aircraft PAX door.
Each Wi-Fi Dock can be integrated into an existing fuselage dock system or combined with complementary modules for any further access option.
