Ft. Huachuca, AZ


L-3 Communications ESSCO



The Electronic Space Systems Corporation and Georgia Tech Research Institute sought to construct a highly accurate compact range reflector at the U.S. Army Electronic Proving Ground that would maintain a surface accuracy of 0.007 in. rms under the harsh wind and thermal conditions of the high desert of southern Arizona.  SGH designed the structure and consulted on lifting procedures for the 75 ft dia. offset parabolic reflector.
