Military Applications for Airstrips/Runways
Soil Solutions has developed new and innovative technologies through ongoing research and testing that have resulted in unsurpassed methodology for the construction, improvement and upgrading of gravel airports/runways that are essential in providing a solution for the military in overcoming demanding operational conditions.
Soil Solutions Intelligent Airstrip Solutions make us the leading provider of advanced combined technologies that allow for cost-effective and sustainable Value Engineered Solutions®, construction, and upgrades to Military Airstrips.
Using the highly effective EBS Soil Stabilizer developed specifically by Soil Solutions for stabilizing and surface sealing of Military Airstrips will ensure a surface that is UV and weather-resistant, protected from erosion, safer and will allow for a dust-free surface making it highly visible to approaching aircraft while providing a non-slippery surface for wet conditions.
The unequalled performance of EBS on a Military Airstrip will result in a long-lasting surface that will require less maintenance, no dust, and the prevention of damage to aircraft by making FOD highly visible. The improved skid resistance characteristics of the EBS surface seal has been proven to increase aircraft acceleration and reducing costly maintenance to expensive military aircraft.

Military Applications for Helipads
Soil Solutions provides cost effective and Value Engineered Solutions® for the construction and upgrade of military helipads.
Soil Solutions delivers real solutions that are cost effective and easy to implement that address the challenges of Helicopter use in remote military areas.
Depending upon if the requirement is for a long-term solution or a temporary situation – we provide the products that will counter dangerous Brownout conditions created by rotary-wing aircraft operations that cause zero visibility conditions that can result in serious accidents often accompanied with loss of life in the course of sustained military operations and assigned missions throughout the World.
It is important to note that helicopters hovering over areas where there is loose dirt or gravel can damage the rotors and propel FOD onto runways and taxiways creating hazardous conditions, the incorporation of EBS Soil Stabilizer or Durasolution depending upon the material and situation will eliminate costly damage and unsafe operating conditions.
An EBS or Durasolution treated helipad will last longer and perform better while providing the following characteristics:
- Improved Pilot Visibility enabling safer landings with clear visibility of vehicles and other hazardous objects.
- Increased Visibility of FOD effecting safer landings and eliminating damage to aircraft.
- Upgraded Landing Surface to the highest quality and longest lasting surface with reduced maintenance and elimination of soil erosion.
- Reduced Aircraft / Chopper Maintenance – increased life of air filters and rotor blades resulting in increased flying hours as well as protecting sophisticated avionics from damage.
Any interruption due to poor quality of roads or the rapid deterioration of road surfaces will have a negative effect in the rapid deployment of personnel and equipment, which in turn will impact the ability of military personnel to effectively conduct combat operations. Military Roads are an essential component of any military operation where large quantities of material need to be transported along lines-of-communication to the operational frontlines to FOB’s.
Soil Solutions provides innovative tailor made solutions for military roads with a product range that includes:
