Also available is a sensor crows nest that can accommodate sensors and antennas at 4.5m above sea level whilst providing a stable working platform for maintenance crew. Access to the crows nest is via a ladder. Housing payloads within the superstructure avoids the need for expensive connectors, and submersion proof electronics enclosures, although not sealed, the tower provides significant protection against the elements.
