Description of Work Performed: The Combat Information Transport System (CITS) is the program that is responsible for the upgrade and modernization of voice and data network infrastructure systems across US Air Force and Air National Guard base and installations around the world. The CITS Program includes lifecycle management functions addressing the acquisition, sustainment, implementation and maintenance for these critical infrastructure elements.
CITS is composed of three subsystems: Transport, Network Defense and Network Management. Transport is everything that relates to the physical pathways that information passes through. Network Defense is the security, and Network Management is the control. All of these assets combine to provide connectivity throughout the Air Force to link in-garrison command, control and combat support systems to the Defense Information System Network. Network connectivity, information assurance, asset management, interoperability, and standard interfaces to joint service networks are the core goals of the CITS program.
A typical CITS infrastructure project consists of a site survey, design, design approval in a formal design review process, material logistics, installation, test and acceptance, network cutover, site clean-up, and restoration. Throughout the entire length of a CITS ITS project, weekly progress reviews are conducted. In addition, weekly and monthly Project Status reports are submitted to appropriate government officials.
Trans-Tel has been involved in supporting the CITS program since 2003 and continues to support it today as a subcontractor.
Title: Port of Houston Authority Pre Outage Network Installation for Terminal 4
Middle Yard Barbours Cut Terminal and Southside Fiber Installations
2012 to 2014
Description of Work Performed: Trans-Tel installed 41 5X5X5 pull boxes with 6X6X6 non-skid lids, rings and covers. Each pull box was equipped with 5X5X5 racking hardware. The duct bank for this installation comprised 87,000 feet of 4 inch conduit with 1 inch 3 way innerduct pulled inside. The duct bank also included 710 feet of 10” HDPE and 3600 feet of 16” HDPE.
Trans-Tel pulled, terminated and tested over 67,000 feet of 144 strand Single Mode Fiber Optic Cable. We installed four (4) 144 port Fiber Optic Distribution Panels (FODPs), forty-eight 24 Adapter Inserts, 16 LC Patch Cords, 576 LC pig tails, 500 feet of Plenum Innerduct, and four (4) 4900M Network Switches.
Trans-Tel also just completed installation of 5 5X5X5 Man Holes and performed over 4000 feet of directional Boring under a series of rail road tracks at the facility. This installation also required a directional bore of over 1000 feet underneath the Houston Ship Channel. This bore required working with the US Coast Guard to obtain proper permitting.
Trans-Tel worked closely with POH and BNSF Railroad personnel to tailor our Environmental, Safety, and Health plan to meet the strict needs of the Port Authority and to ensure proper right of way for boring beneath RR tracks. We also provided erosion control, noise abatement, and restored all sites to their original condition.
Title: Information Transport System - Inside Plant Installation (ISP) Department
of Defense – Air National Guard
Nine (9) ANG Installations (see below)
2006 - 2012
Atlantic City, NJ | Spokane, WA | Phoenix, AZ | Battle Creek, MI | Martinsburg, WVA
Oklahoma City, OK | Channel Isle, CA | Meridian Key, MS | Willow Grove, PA
Description of Work Performed: The Information Transport System (ITS) Inside Plant Installation (ISP) for Air National Guard involved the ISP modernization at nine Air National Guard locations. The inside plant modernization delivered an integrated, high-bandwidth, structured copper and fiber optic cabling system providing sufficient information transport capability to support current and future mission requirements of the Air National Guard (ANG). The ANG upgraded all infrastructure components, including telecommunications grounding connections, entrance facilities, communications cross-connects, communications equipment rooms, telecommunications closets, distribution support systems (raceways and pathways), communications cables, user outlets, riser systems, patch panels, patch cords and mounting hardware.
IAW ISO 9001:2008 Standards each base had an initial, mid-point and final inspection, along with periodic quality inspections. A thorough quality plan was implemented to ensure that each base adhered to the ADC cable manufacturer’s installation standards, so that each location received a 20-year ADC warranty.
Trans-Tel closely coordinated the installation and cutover plan, and limited the downtime for each location. Once installation of new components was completed, all existing cable was removed and recycled. Trans-Tel installed over seven million feet of CAT 6 communications cable and over one million feet of fiber-optic cable.
Upon completion of each location, Trans-Tel tested and certified the installed cable and delivered “as built” drawings, along with Visio rack elevations, to government officials. In addition to the installation activities, training was provided to military personnel at each location for cabling system installation practices, troubleshooting, and maintenance procedures system.
Title: Fiber Optic Cable Installation for Oklahoma Department of Transportation
2011 - Present
Description of Work Performed: Tran-Tel provided underground and aerial fiber replacement (Over Head Ground Wire to Optical Ground Wire) as well as new construction of underground and aerial routes for ODOT. Trans-Tel did not subcontract any of our Cable Placement, Termination or Testing. All cable placements were done by permanent, full-time Trans-Tel employees.
Trans-Tel provided Pre-Project planning, Site Surveys, Design criteria and Post Installation clean-up. We take great care in providing quality installation with a minimum impact to the Public Right of Way and with minimal traffic disruption.
An example of our work was a 33 mile new construction, fiber and conduit project from the Atoka ODOT comm. hut to the SEOSU campus in Durant OK. TRANS-TEL completed this project 30 days ahead of schedule. All aspects of testing were acceptable on the first attempt. Final ODOT walk through resulted in no “exceptions” when ODOT took ownership of this project. After assessing soil type TRANS-TEL deployed a “Spider Plow” for a considerable portion of the project. By utilizing this method TRANS-TEL was able to accelerate schedules for overall production. This application reaped great benefits in terms of efficiency both in daily production and in restoration of existing environmental conditions. These strategies allowed TRANS-TEL to complete contracted SOW prior to all other OSP contractors on this phase.
Title: Survivable Fiber Optic Distribution System
Santa Rosa Island (Eglin AFB, FL) Department of the Air Force
Eglin AFB, FL
Description of Work Performed: Due to past hurricanes (Hurricane Andrew & Katrina) the communications network at Santa Rosa Island was completely destroyed. The objective of this project was to establish a hardened and survivable fiber optic distribution system capable of withstanding a storm surge and over wash of 19’ or greater.
To accomplish this objective, we installed a 12-mile-long manhole and 8-inch duct system at a 20’ depth. The fiber optic cable placed in this duct system consisted of two 288 strand fiber optic cables. Due to environmental concerns these cables were installed, terminated and tested with no splicing; resulting in continuous runs in excess of 4 miles. This effort included a 6,000’ bore under the Santa Rosa Sound at an average depth of 40’ to facilitate the placement of conduit and fiber optic cable.
This work effort included installation of conduit systems (conduit, inner ducts, manholes, hand holes, warning tape, locate system, manhole markers). Trans-Tel tested and certified the installed cable, and delivered “as built” drawings to the owner upon completion.
