Lightning Protection Survey for Radome Radar Sites

Categories: Articles, Engineering Services, Government & Education, Telecommunications|

ALLTEC was contracted to perform a lighting protection study of several AN/FPS-117 and AN/FPS-124 radar sites part of the American Canadian North Warning System. Because these radar systems are predominately located in northern latitudes, they have unique environmental conditions to consider. This includes high and varying soil resistivity, low isokeraunic level, [...]
