Building on the success of the 40-site broadband microwave DeltaNet project STG completed in 2008, this new hybrid fiber-optic and microwave network now connects Grayling to Unalakleet, Unalakleet to Shaktoolik, and Shaktoolik to Nome. From barges to planes and cranes to helicopters, we know the importance of getting the right equipment to the right place at the right time. STG managed the transport of shelters, fuel tanks, battery banks, and tower sections to remote staging areas in Golovin, Baldwin, Solomon, and Koyuk. To expedite installation, STG brought in one of the most capable pieces of heavy lift equipment on the planet—Erickson’s Air-Crane. Top: Setting tower | Gill 2013 Bottom: Setting module | Gill 2013
