This Command-36-6WS Mishap Incident Response trailer was built by Mobile Concepts to serve as an on-scene Mobile Command Center in the event of an emergency situation at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) in Virginia.
The Mobile Command Center supports the WFF Airfield Mishap Response Plan, which outlines the procedures, responsibilities, preparatory measures and operating procedures needed in the event of an in-flight emergency or aircraft mishap.
This vehicle may temporarily support missions where no other radar, telemetry receivers or command transmitters exist, ensuring safety and collecting data in order to enable and support suborbital launches from remote site.
