Abstract : This document records the results of a portion of a 1969 Company funded study to develop power and heat dissipation concepts for future military defense radar systems. The discussions of each potential concept establishes a feel for 'state-of-the-art' as well as advanced research and development design. Conceiving of a 100% non-air breathing hardened underground power generation and heat dissipation system is the ultimate goal of this study, a concept that satisfies the major objectives and requirements of a defense radar system.
