Abstract : Section LAJ-16 was made a part of Task Group 7.1 for the purpose of initiating and maintaining an accurate file of maps and wiring diagrams, showing the positions of all Los Alamos and Service experimental installations at the Eniwetok Proving Grounds. Proper location of all underground cables between stations occupied a prominent place in the initial planning. In order to effectively coordinate the cable installations with the main construction program, this section assumed the responsibility of acting as liaison among other LAJ sections and the Service Units designated to perform the work. Later this liaison function was expanded until LAJ-16 eventually became an active participant, rather than a coordinator, in cable laying, wiring, and generator maintenance.
