Abstract
A MILITARY SITUATION INVOLVING THE THREAT OF NUCLEAR WARFARE MAY REQUIRE RAPID DEPLOYMENT OF EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES WHICH MAY REQUIRE SHIELDING AGAINST ELECTROMAGNETIC EFFECTS. THIS PROPOSAL IS TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A RAPIDLY DEPLOYABLE SHIELDING BLANKET SYSTEM THAT COULD BE QUICKLY ASSEMBLED IN THE FIELD FOR PROTECTION OF PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT. THE BLANKET WOULD CONSIST OF METAL COATED HIGH-STRENGTH PLASTIC OUTER SKINS BONDED TO A CONDUCTIVE LOSSY FILLER MATERIAL SUCH AS CONDUCTIVE FOAM OR MESH. BLANKETS WOULD BE TRANSPORTED ON STANDARDIZED ROLLS AND INDIVIDUAL BLANKETS WOULD BE ELECTRICALLY BONDED TOGETHER WITH CONDUCTIVE VELCRO-TYPE STRIPS. THEY WOULD BE ASSEMBLED OVER LIGHT WEIGHT STRUCTURAL FRAMES, OR COULD BE ASSEMBLED IN AN IMPROMPTU MANNER USING FIELD AVAILABLE MATERIALS.
