|Publication Date:||22 December 2005|
This document mandates standard lightning protection, transient protection, grounding, bonding and shielding configurations and procedures and control of electrostatic discharge (ESD) for new facilities, modifications and upgrades to existing facilities, new equipment installations, and new electronic equipment used in the National Airspace Systems (NAS). It provides requirements for the design, construction, modification or evaluation of facilities and equipment. (It is recommended that the OPR of this document be contacted to obtain technical guidance on the applicability of the requirements to modifications, upgrades and new equipment installations in existing facilities.)
This document is not mandatory for programs that have been funded prior to the issue date of this document, nor is it mandatory for construction contracts associated with programs funded prior to the issue of the document. Application of this document is at the discretion of the user for programs that have been funded prior to the issue of the document. The Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR) can mandate the use of this document for programs started before the issue date of this document, if funding is provided.
The interface between contractor owned equipment or electronic equipment not used for operational purposes (administrative local area network (LAN), administrative telephone, etc.) and the operational facility shall be in accordance with this document.
The requirements of this standard provide a systematic approach to minimize electrical hazards to personnel, electromagnetic interference and damage to facilities and electronic equipment from lightning, transients, ESD, and power faults.
