Yep, EMP tolerance... that's my guess too.

We have 3 winners. DocWils, SS, and Surferdude.
I knew a HAM would recognize the wideband dipole.
That's the pulse generator suspended in the middle.

During design and build, parts and subsystems are tested; this pad permits testing of the entire system after integration.
And, yes, EMP specifically as a nuclear event threat (or other exotic weapons we'll not discuss.)

atta-boy!

The ultimate test is to take it out to the Trestle at Kirtland. The concrete pad has too much metal (rebar, tie-downs) in it to give a truly accurate result, however, it is good enough for routine testing. Many years ago I was on the crew that took one of our EC-130s out there for testing, including in the chamber. The chamber was a real experience.

BTW, the Trestle is in the Guinness Book as the largest post and beam structure ever built. There isn't a single piece of metal anywhere in it.

The Trestle is shutdown. The wood is unsafe.
That's why an Air Force B2 was tested at the Naval Air Warfare Center, PAX River.

I enjoyed the times I have been to Kirtland/Sandia.

Next week, we'll do the P2V Neptune!!!

Well I see five antennas. The one the background looks to be an U-Adcock DF antenna the next one looks to be a dipole of some sort and one if the fore ground looks to be some sort of broad band HF antenna. Now for the one on the trailer roof. I dont know? But there is also a UHF dish in the background.
Been a while since I have seen a U-Adcock antenna.

Termites probably got to it as well as some of the wood rot. Hate to see it go. It is definitely a unique structure.
