MIL-HDBK-412, MILITARY HANDBOOK: SITE SURVEY AND FACILITY DESIGN HANDBOOK FOR SATELLITE EARTH STATIONS (20 MAY 1981)
MIL-HDBK-412, MILITARY HANDBOOK: SITE SURVEY AND FACILITY DESIGN HANDBOOK FOR SATELLITE EARTH STATIONS (20 MAY 1981)., his handbook presents selected topics in earth station facility engineering to telecommunications engineers, managers, and senior operations and maintenance (O&M) personnel. These topics cover the site selection process and the design of site facilities (including physical structures and the electrical power and ground systems). Although this handbook applies mainly to medium and heavy earth stations, portions may be used for siting tactical or special-use terminals. The term "vanized equipment," as used here, applies both to Defense Communications System (DCS) equipment that is mounted in vans and to tactical equipment that is mounted in vans or shelters. The discussion of site selection information is augmented by the inclusion of sample worksheets (Appendix A) as information collection aids.
