Abstract : This pamphlet is a guide to proper earth grounding methods and procedures for use with tactical systems. It describes different earth grounding systems and provides guidance on the proper methods for their installation. Earth grounding helps to protect personnel and equipment from electrical faults, power surges, and other surges and transients. Earth grounding also helps reduce circuit noise and other transmission interference that can degrade communications-electronics system performance. The instructions contained in this pamphlet, not often found in technical manuals, will help in setting up effective and safe earth grounding systems for tactical equipment and shelters.
