Standard pylons have target load capacities of 1,500 lbs (680 kg), 3,000 lbs (1,361 kg) and 30,000 lbs (13,608 kg). Standard two-axis rotators of corresponding capacities are available for all MI-830 pylons. Pylon heights range from 5 ft (1.5 m) to 70 ft (21.3 m), and may be tailored to a customer’s specific application. The structure is typically of polished aluminum monocoque design, with an ogive cross section of 4:1 ratio. Extremely large or special purpose pylons may have different shapes, ogive ratios or construction material. Extreme heights well over 70 ft (21.3 m) and load capacities up to 50,000 lbs (22,680 kg) are also available
The Family Pylons provide safe and reliable target support for low-observable and RCS test and measurements. They cover a wide range of heights and boast load capacities up to 30,000 lbs (13,608 kg). Pylons are designed as a polished structure with an ogive cross section in order to limit electromagnetic reflections.
