1.0 SCOPE1.1 Scope. This document establishes standard electrical, electronic, and mechanical requirements forground electronic equipment.1.2 Application. The requirements of this standard shall apply to equipment developed or fabricated toGovernment specifications, including commercial production (original equipment manufacture (OEM))items. When applied to OEM items, the requirement of this document shall serve as a basis of selectionamong comparably performing equipment.1.3 Contracting Officer's Technical Representative. The Contracting Officer's Technical Representative(COTR) shall provide the final interpretation of any conflict between this standard and specific contractrequirements.1.4 Waivers. Any request for waiver of specific requirements of this standard shall be submitted in writingto the COTR and to the Contracting Officer. A request for waiver must include: a) identification of theparagraphs for which the waiver is requested; b) identification of the systems, equipment, or componentsfor which the waiver is requested; and c) a discussion of rationale for granting the waiver, including impacton reliability, maintainability, schedule, and cost if the waiver is not granted.2.0 APPLICABLE DOCUMENTS2.1 Government documents. The following documents, of the issue in effect on the date of invitation forbid or request for proposal, form a part of this standard to the extent specified herein:The requirements of the following NOAA/NESDIS standards shall apply to all hardware and software,as described in this document.Standard No. S24.801 - Preparation of Operation and Maintenance Manuals.Standard No. S24.802 - General Requirements for Ground Electronic EquipmentStandard No. S24.803 - Cable and Wire Identification. Standard No. S24.804 - General Requirements for Training on Electronic and Computer Equipment

This groundingstandard provides equipment requirements, design and installation procedures, and test methods, suitablefor all communications and data processing systems. Specific requirements are defined for perimetergrounds, air terminals, down conductors, equipment rooms, antennas with integral electronic rooms, powergrounds, and the interconnection of these subsystems throughout a widely spread site. The need forlightning and power fault protection, ground returns for signal and control cables, and radiation andinterference suppression are addressed and integrated into a system for the entire facility. Priorities forupgrading existing facilities are identified, post installation and maintenance test procedures are detailed,and guidelines are given for tracing and correcting problems that may arise during the upgrade process.
This document was developed by MITRE Corporation under NOAA/NESDIS Contract Number 50-DGNE-5-0089. It was reviewed and approved by a panel of twenty people concerned with the groundingof electronic equipment, from both within and outside of the NOAA/NESDIS organization, which wasconvened by NOAA/NESDIS on November 8, 1989.
