Aircraft Towing Systems' revolutionary electric-powered prototype will demonstrate how ATS transports aircraft at airports without the use of an aircraft’s main engines.

Aircraft Towing Systems World Wide LLC and its associated contractors, including Oklahoma State University’s New Product Development Center, are busy transforming a Polish inventor’s dream into a prototype designed to introduce an innovative new way of moving aircraft at airports. The piece of steel featured above is the first manufactured as part of the ATS underground-tunnel system that will be located beneath a taxiway, ramp and gate area at the Ardmore Industrial Airpark. An electric tug car known as a “pull car” connects to an above-ground “tow dolly” mechanism that tugs and pushes an aircraft from one location to another. The electric-powered system allows pilots to turn off the aircraft’s main engines. Anticipated benefits from ATS include improved safety, fuel savings, a reduction in airport accidents, decreased emissions, as well as increased airport efficiency, a longer jet-engine life, time-management improvements and a reduction in noise.
