Abstract:

The protective system included a symmetrical shield which provides a canopy over the NIKE radars, the ANMPQ-47 radar and all mobile vans which house computers, control equipment and communication equipment. The canopy reduces the probability of direct-lightning-strike damage to equipment and reduces the currents induced in cables interconnecting between Device 2D2 subsystems. Author
