This massive vehicle, referred to as THOR, is an 80ft long, mobile communications/command center that is over 20ft wide and just under 19ft tall when staged. In addition to being self-contained with power and lighting, THOR contains new and emerging technologies that can keep emergency communications intact throughout crisis situations, employing a multi-disciplinary approach for a fully sustained and redundant solution. THOR will be stationed in Upper Parking Lot 4 throughout Friday evening and most of the day on Saturday. Brief tours will be given throughout the day on Saturday as space is available.
