Saturday, May 26, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944.

School is getting out and people will be taking annual leave. Summer is here! Summer is a time for travel, children with extra play time, cookouts, and days at the beach and pool. These seasonal activities call for some extra thought to avoid accidents. Vacation: Most of us travel off island. That usually requires driving vehicles on roads with more traf c and speed limits somewhat higher than those on Kwajalein. Before you drive, take a minute to get familiar with your vehicle. You donÂ’t want to have to search for the windshield wipers or the headlight controls when you are driving. Keep your speed lower than usual while you get used to driving again. Long distance driving can be particularly hazardous donÂ’t drive while drowsy; take a rest break. Wear your seatbelts, and if traveling with a small child use a child safety seat. If operating a motorcycle, wear your PPE (personal protective equipment): helmet, gloves, long pants and eye protection. Children: When operating a vehicle, watch out for children darting into the streets. Drive slowly near intersections, particularly in the housing area. As we know, many Kwaj kids donÂ’t concern themselves much with traf c safety. But the rest of the world is not so safe. When you travel, make sure your children know how to be safe pedestrians in traf c areas. Go over rules for safe biking, and remind them to be constantly on the lookout for Sandy works in Airfield Base Operations. Sandy is the person to go to if it involves the airfield or flights and needs to be done quickly and efficiently. She has to coordinate the daily and special flights for the helicopters and airplanes. The specials, in particular, always seem to change times, people and mission at the last minute. She manages to always do this in the most efficient/polite manner while having to deal with generals, rocket scientists, commanders, protocol officers, program managers and others who all believe their flight is most important. She is a great employee and true class act.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 26, 2007 3See GAGAN, Page 4 Gagan tower cones removed corrosion was endangering high tech facility The Hourglass reportsThe Kwajalein Atoll skyline was altered a bit when the last of three Radio Corporation of America cone antennas were removed from the Gagan Tower last month. “The RCA Cones on the 200foot Gagan Tower have been a landmark for the Kwajalein aviators and marine department personnel for over 20 years,” said Jim Walter, U. S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Safety and Occupational Health manager. “The RCA cones were decommissioned in the 80s and were the last microwave antennas remaining on the Kwajalein atoll,” Walter continued. Over the past 15 years the cones became heavily corroded, threatening a communications building directly beneath and becoming a dangerous work environment for telemetry technicians who periodically climb the tower to adjust their antennas. “All communications between Roi, Kwaj and the other islands would have been lost if one of the cones had landed on the building,” said Walter. A temporary solution to this precarious condition was to chain the brackets holding the cones to the tower, eventually the bolts holding the brackets corroded. The bolts on the brackets were so corroded, Walter explained, that the bolts could be removed by hand. To remove the cones, each weighing more than 600 pounds, Kwajalein Range Services Height Riggers worked six straight hours on the tower without coming down. Over three days the height rigging crew was challenged by the heat, intermittent, torrential downpours and high winds while trying to connect the lines and cut the cones from the tower. “We all drank lots of water to stay hydrated and wore sun block,” said Don Swanby, KRS Safety Specialist. “When the Marshallese get hot and wear sun block you know its hot.” KRS Chief Rigger Wally Burbine, referencing more than 50 years of experience “working in the air,” and his crew safely removed the cones without injury or damage to property and equipment using a rope and pulley sysA 600-pound cone antenna is safely lowered to the ground after threatening a building directly beneath a communications tower on Gagan.

Saturday, May 26, 2007 The Kwajalein HourglassSwanby said. “During removal it was very important not to have anything go wrong, once the cones were removed and being lowered there, was no turning back.” “Mr. Burbine… was very meticulous in ensuring the removal of the cones was conducted safely,” Walter said. “Safety briefs were conducted daily with lessons learned discussed from the previous day. Might not seem like much on the surface, but Mr. Burbine saved the U.S. Army a bundle.” After the antennas were removed, they were brought back to Kwajalein and deposited behind Building 1017. Eventually Burbine will take apart the cones to determine if any internal parts can be salvaged. Gagan is located 38 miles northwest of Kwajalein and is a telemetry and communication hub for USAKA.4 GAGAN from Page 3 tem. Initially, it was thought that the cones could only be removed using a crane and a specialized crew from Hawaii. “There were several issues that required a specialized rigging plan so as not to damage the tower, the ‘guy’ wires that holds the antennas up, and the building and electronics directly underneath,” Hourglass reportsThe meat room at Surfway will be closed from June 6 to 29. “The Meat Room is getting new ooring, this will allow for proper cleaning / sanitation at the end of each shift,” David Fearon, Kwajalein Range Services Retail Services manager said. “We will not have defrosted chill meats available and our special orders beef cuts will be limited,” Fearon said. “We may not be able to process all requests. Frozen pork and Beef will still be available at Surfway, Ten-Ten, and Gimbels.” There should not be a change in deli meats and cheeses at retail outlets. “We are borrowing some of the equipment from the Caf Paci c,” Fearon said.Typically customers ordering special cuts need to give the meat room staff 48 hours notice, but during the renovation that has been extended to four days. For more information, call Surfway at 53607 or the butcher shop at 53525. Floor repair temporarily decreases meat service The bolts on the brackets used to hold the cone antennas in place show signs of corrosion so severe they can be removed by hand. KRS Height Riggers remained on the tower six straight hours without a break to remove three cone antennas from the 200-foot Gagan Tower.Memorial Day hours of operationMonday Surfway..................................................normal hours Ten-Ten.................................................normal hours Macy’s....................................................normal hoursMacy’s West...............................................normal hoursGimbel’s.................................................normal hours DVD Depot............................................normal hours Salon.................................................................closed Laundry.............................................................closed Kwaj Post Of ce...............................................closed Tuesday Surfway.............................................................closed Ten-Ten................................................normal hours Macy’s.................................................10 a.m.-7 p.m. Macy’s West.....................................10 a.m. 2 p.m. Gimbel’s............................................10 a.m. 2 p.m. DVD Depot...........................................normal hours Salon.....................................................normal hours Laundry............................................................closedCommunity Bank .........................................closed Kwaj Post Of ce.................................normal hoursRoi-Namur Post of ce, 10 a.m.-noon and 1-4:30 p.m. All CYS programs will be closed.

Saturday, May 26, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Big bucks saved on radar partsBy JJ KleinReporterFor the Kwajalein Range Services Radar department being in the right place at the right time resulted in a very signi cant $1.6 million windfall when it acquired a soon-to-be decommissioned Mobile Positioning System. The MPS-36 SN2 radar system, obtained by the Radar department for $75,000, is identical to the two MPS36 radar systems located behind Building 1056 near Coral Sands. The $75,000 price tag included a 12-foot radar dish, the pedestal and cooling unit, an electronics radar van, and valuable transmission tubes and spare parts. Manager of Kwajalein Radars Robert Struppeck is just the first in a long line of KRS and U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll personnel to talk about the “massive amount of cost avoidance with the acquisition of a system like this.” When all was quanti ed and accounted for, the overall cost avoidance was well over $1.6 million. Cost avoidance is the nancial savings realized by avoiding a relatively given future expenditure within an organization. “The most valuable parts acquired were the transmitter tubes,” Struppeck said. “These MPSs use three stages of transmitter tubes and we acquired ve of the highest power transmitter tubes the one million watt transmitter tubes. Those alone are worth $220,000 a piece.” Struppeck learned about the availability of the MPS36 SN2 approximately a year ago while attending a conference where his Vandenberg Air Force Base counterpart mentioned he was going to decommission a MPS-36 radar and asked if Kwajalein would be interested in acquiring it. The road from Vandenberg to Kwajalein for the MPS-36 SN2, was cobbled together through a coordinated effort between Joe Marzili from the KRS Richmond Of ce, the Kwajalein Radar department, the KRS Procurement department and a lot of muscle from JKL Industries, the stateside subcontractor. “We began coordination with the KRS Richmond California equipment enhances range capabilities Sub-contractors use a crane to lift the 32,000 pound disassembled MPS-36 SN2 onto a trailer for transport to Kwajalein.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 26, 2007 7of ce, which is located very close to where the SN2 system was parked and with their great assistance we were able to layout exactly how we were going to do this,” said Struppeck. Field Engineer Steve Johnson used part of his personal leave to make a side trip to Pillar Point, Calif., where the MPS-36 SN2 sat for the last from 20 to 30 years, to see if the radar was worth the trouble to transport to Kwajalein. He “went out, kicked some tires and said, ‘Buy it.’” There were a number of details to consider facilitating a smooth transaction between Vandenberg and Kwajalein said Struppeck, including the dismantling and crating of the radar system, transportation to Kwajalein, and first, and most importantly the administrative question of, “how do we do the property transfer?” Without the know-how to arrange an acquisition of this kind, the Radar department turned to the Procurement department to lead the way. The Procurement group helped guide the Radar guys through the property transfer, rst identifying the best way to handle the transfer and ultimately arranging for the transfer of the radar system.As soon as the transfer was in place Antenna Lead Mark Yurovchak hopped on a plane to Pillar Point, located in the San Francisco Bay area, to oversee the demolition of an of ce building attached to the radar electronics van and the disassembly and packing of the radar system by JKL Industries. The five-week process ended with a thorough environmental cleanup of the site. The container ship arrived in Kwajalein on April 25 carrying the dismantled MPS-36 SN2 system in three separate containers. The trailer carting the dish, pedestal and cooling system weighed in at 32,000 pounds. Only 12 MPS-36 systems were ever built; all 12 radars are named for their corresponding serial numbers. The two working radars on Kwajalein are called SN3 and SN4. The radar acquired from Vandenberg is referred to as SN2. SN3 and SN4, located in the Kwajalein Atoll area for the past 20 years, are very old systems originally used as mobile systems on the outer islands, and according to Struppeck, were brought back to Kwajalein and xed in their permanent positions approximately 10 years ago. “The radars are especially handy for tracking local launches,” explained Struppeck. “Sometimes we have objects we shoot from the atoll for customers, like SpaceX, and occasionally other objects like ‘met’ rockets and such. These radars are ideal for supporting those kinds of missions.” The radars track items by sending out bursts of energy. The energy hits an object and bounces back to the radar. The radar group can see where an object is by following the bouncing energy and can tell how far it is by measuring the time it takes for each bounce to come back. Last week the Radar and Procurement departments celebrated the successful, cost-savings acquisition of the MPS-36 SN2 with a luncheon awards ceremony attended by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Range Commander Lt. Col. Justin Hirniak, Kwajalein Range Services President John Pickler and KRS Radar Manager Jeff DeLong. “I think you’ve really started something here, an initiative that I think the range is capitalizing on,” said Hirniak as he commended both departments for their role in the acquisition. “Everyone in their mission areas throughout the range should go out there and talk to their counterparts in the other ranges and see what’s going on.” The bar has been set. Encouraged by the successful acquisition of the MPS-36 SN2, it’s extremely likely the range will hunt down other cost saving opportunities. The Kwajalein Radar Department acquired the MPS-36 SN2 radar system from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. for $75,000. A radar van is off-loaded from the Matson container ship along with the MPS-36 radar system and a container of spare parts when it arrived in port on April 25.

Cookouts: Cookouts are not uncommon on Kwajalein. However, we need to be reminded of a few safety rules. Do not allow small children to play in the vicinity of a hot grill. Do not use a grill indoors or on an enclosed or covered porch. Turn the gas off when the grill is not in use and, if using a charcoal grill, make sure the coals are cold before disposing in the trash. Make sure you properly store, handle, and prepare your food to avoid becoming ill. Keep warm foods warm and cold foods cold. Swimming: Being surrounded by water and having access to two swimming pools presents lots of opportunity for a mishap. Teach your children to swim. Never let children to be left unattended around the water. Use the buddy system. Alcohol: Alcohol is involved in a huge number of summer accidents. Whether it is a cookout, a trip to the beach, watching the kids play in the water, or just lounging around the house, consuming alcohol could be a part of your activities. If you drink, please do so responsibly. Drink in moderation; do not drink while boating, driving, diving, skiing or swimming.By keeping safety in mind you can enjoy a safe summer season. Don’t let an accident ruin it for you.SAFETY from Page 2
